Despite the many attempts by countries and governments to stop the spread, coronavirus still seems to be the world’s biggest challenge. So far, there are more than 523,000 cases worldwide, and nearly 24,000 deaths. More than 123,000 people worldwide have recovered from the disease, according to Worldometers.
At the same time, the United States has seen cases grow exponentially. Nearly 81,000 cases cases of coronavirus have been confirmed, with 1,163 deaths. More than 12,000 new cases were reported in the United States in the last 24 hours. With more than 37,000 cases, nearly half of America’s coronavirus cases are in New York State.

In China’s Hubei Province, where the infection of this coronavirus originated, covid-19 is said to be in relatively stable conditions. No new infections have been reported either. However, a large number of infections occurring in the rest of China have been reported. In the UK the death toll rose to 463 yesterday, and Thursday to 578.

Coronavirus has invaded the whole world, and information and statistics about the epidemic are updating constantly. All of this is affecting mental health, especially those who are already suffering from anxiety disorders. Concerns about this information are understandable, but for many, it can cause health problems to increase. When the World Health Organization provided advice on protecting mental health during the Coronavirus outbreak, the idea was well-received on social media networks.
As a mental health professional more sensitive to anxiety disorders in the UK, Nicky Lidbetter explains anxiety and uncontrolled anxiety are among the most common symptoms of panic disorder. It is therefore understandable that many who are already suffering from panic attacks face challenges at this time.
The infection spreads from one person to another through droplets. It is important for people to consider regular hand washing with soapy water or a hand sanitizer. It is best to avoid being around someone who has a cough or a fever. Anyone who thinks they have had a coronavirus infection is better to call a doctor.
There is currently no vaccine to protect against coronavirus, although scientists are still struggling to make that vaccine. This is a new virus that has never been detected before, and as such, no one is immune to it. This new coronavirus can cause a person to get sick, and many are people with lung problems.
The World Health Organization has also said that, within 18 months, a coronavirus vaccine may be available.
