Grocers are trying to prevent coronavirus food panic buying. The coronavirus, which first sickened people in China in December, is thought to have passed from animals to humans, like many similar pathogens, but nothing has been confirmed yet by any peer-reviewed scientific research, global public health agency or academic expert. Beyond that, little is known about its origin.
Coronaviruses are made up of one strip of RNA, and that genetic material is surrounded by a membrane studded with little spike proteins. (Under a microscope, those proteins stick up in a ring around the top of the virus, giving it its name “corona” is Latin for “crown.”) When the virus gets into the body, those spike proteins attach to host cells, and the virus injects that RNA into the cell’s nucleus, hijacking the replication machinery there to make more virus. Infection ensues.
The 1918 Spanish flu, the worst pandemic of the 20th century is estimated to have killed at least 50 million people worldwide over the course of three years. The death rate was estimated to be about 2.5%.
The most recent pandemic flu caused by the H1N1 virus that emerged from pigs in 2009 caused somewhere between 152,000 and 575,000 deaths around the world.
