The Chinese city with a community of over eleven million residents is currently on lockdown as officials investigate the spreading of a fatal disease.
It is known as the coronavirus outbreak.
Reuters has given a short brief to what it is exactly:
“Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that get their name from what they look like under a microscope – they are spherical and their surfaces are covered with “crown”-like spikes.”
They also wrote this:
“Coronavirus infections can lead to respiratory illnesses – some of which can be severe and deadly, and some of which can be much milder, such as the common cold.”
The symptoms can be life-threatening.
“Coronavirus infections have a wide range of symptoms, including fever, coughing, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Severe cases can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and death.”
