A New Coronavirus Infection. Today's View of the Pandemic

Keywords: pandemic, COVID-19, coronavirus incidence, SARS-CoV-2

Based on the literature review, the authors describe current situation of the new coronavirus infection COVID-19 spread, which is a common problem for the entire world community. The COVID-19 infection caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus has rapidly spread to all countries and continents. All segments of the population are sensitive to it, regardless of gender, age, belonging to various social groups. This virus creates certain difficulties in detecting and treating the disease. It is associated with the risks of developing critical clinical conditions of infected people. There are several versions regarding the origin of the coronavirus. The first theory is the natural origin of the virus. The second theory is the artificial origin of the virus. Currently, the evidence for both the artificial origin of the coronavirus and its natural origin is indirect, so it is impossible to reject both hypotheses yet. Reducing the incidence of coronavirus infection can be achieved only through vaccination and compliance with appropriate safety measures.
