Covid-19 is one of the most feared exotic viruses in the world. Spread through contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected person, the disease causes sores, blisters and sores to erupt on the skin. There is no effective vaccine.

Scheduled to strike seven nations, it will cause 600,000 cases of severe fever, as well as pneumonia, meningitis and encephalitis. However, it’s extremely hard to catch — over 40% of infected people don’t even have any symptoms. Most are infected by mistranslated viruses — as a result the virus seems to have been ‘lost’ from the human body over millennia.

While up to 80% of individuals infected with the virus won’t show any symptoms, other types of patients can have a stiff neck, general weakness and fatigue, among other symptoms.

“To save lives in the event of a pandemic, the WHO would be obligated to take all the necessary measures, including an extensive vaccination program,” said Dr. Prakash Dhar, Professor at Max Planck Institute for Microbial Pathogenesis in Germany. “The goal would be to vaccinate as many people as possible that can be most at risk of catching the virus and sustaining any potential diseases spread.”
