What is the coronavirus?

COVID-19 is part of a large family of coronaviruses (CoV) that are transmitted from animals to people. The name COVID-19 is derived from the words corona, virus, and disease, while the number 19 represents the year that it emerged. Symptoms of COVID-19 resemble that of the common cold, with fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. However, serious infections can lead to pneumonia, multi-organ failure, severe acute respiratory syndrome, and even death, if appropriate medical help is not provided.

COVID-19 in India

India reported its first case of this coronavirus in late January in the southern state of Kerala. Since then the outbreak has spread to other states and union territories, with Maharashtra consistently reporting the highest case numbers since mid-March 2020. The government imposed a 21-day nation-wide curfew from March 25 in order to curb the spread of the outbreak, which was extended until May 3, 2020. The lockdown had been further extended for another two weeks starting from May 4, 2020. As per the new guidelines, the country was divided into red, orange and green zones. Red zones are designated as the hotspots and will not see any relaxations in comparison to the areas considered less prone for the spread of the virus.
