Scientists finding past epidemic records such as Russian Flu caused by the Common cold Coronaviruses.

Scientists are serious to study the origin and history of the Common cold Coronaviruses for tracing any past epidemics these viruses caused in the past.A sudden epidemic occurred in Central Asia in 1889, which had Symptoms of a strange kind of fever and deep fatigue, which claimed the lives of about 1 million people. This mysterious disease was called Russian Flu. Is there any relation between Russian flu and Coronavirus?

Scientists now know that four types of coronoviruses are responsible for 20 to 30 percent of the common cold and cough. Before COVID-19 pandemic began, the disease called SARS began to spread in China in 2002 and spread to other countries, infecting more than 6,000 people in the world. The disease is also caused by a coronavirus infection called SARS-CoV-1. With one in ten deaths from the disease, interest in research on coronaviruses has increased and scientists have found that intensive research on coronaviruses is needed to prevent future epidemics. Although it was possible to identify coronoviruses responsible for the common cold and cough in the 1960s, Scientists have made no attempt to trace their origin, spread and history, as they cause very little damage to the human body.They rather focused on practicing with many more deadly viruses. But when 2002 saw the outbreak of SARS, their mindset just changed.

Very few people knew that ignoring the coronovirus group would eventually increase the danger.By this we will return a little further towards the past. A sudden epidemic occurred in Central Asia in 1889, which spread to other parts of the world within a year. The epidemic had Symptoms of a strange kind of fever and deep fatigue, which claimed the lives of about 1 million people. This mysterious disease was called Russian Flu. Although it was not immediately clear which parasitic infection caused the disease, a 1999 sero-archaeological study suggested an influenza virus of the H2N2 Sub-Type responsible for the Russian flu. But another intensive genetic study in 2005 revealed that it was not the influenza virus, but rather the coronovirus OC43, discovered in 1960, that caused the epidemic. Gradually, scientists came to the conclusion that coronaviruses of the common cold, when they were first transmitted from animals to humans, caused an epidemic somewhere in the world.  As if history wants to talk.  Innocent coronovirus OC43 discovered in the 1960s became fatal in 1889–1890, killing approximately one million people.

If the history of the epidemic can be traced in depth, it can be seen that somewhere in the world, this virus had taken refuge from the animal to the human body for the first time and had started a terrible epidemic. Scientists are trying hard to find the actual origin and spread of the Coronaviruses which cause common cold in human body so that future pandemic from a new Coronavirus may be avoided in near or distant future.
