Origin of the coronavirus
This respiratory virus, born in December 2019 in the city of Huan in China, triggered one of the biggest epidemics of our century. It is part of the corona virus family already well known to global health systems since the SARS epidemics in 2002 or MERS in 2012.
However, COVID-19 is much more feared since its appearance, in our populations in 2020, because of serious lung, heart and brain problems, which can lead to death in the elderly, fragile and to a lesser extent in young people.
