By now, the world is in the grip of a viral outbreak that has left hundreds of thousands of people sick.
But while most Americans are feeling relief and recovery from the pandemic, many people are struggling to cope with the virus and its deadly consequences.
Here’s what you need to know about the virus.
What is a pandemic?
A pandemic is a natural, ongoing outbreak that can last anywhere from days to months.
It can be caused by a variety of different pathogens and is triggered by factors like climate change, drought, or human-caused global warming.
It’s called a pandoravirus because the virus is transmitted by an animal that can infect humans.
What does a pandora mean?
Pandora means “great danger” in Latin.
It refers to an imminent threat of a significant and sudden increase in the number of people infected with the pandora virus.
There have been multiple pandoras in history, including the 1918 pandemic and the 1918-1923 pandemic that killed more than 14 million people in China and nearly 30 million people worldwide.
What are some ways to protect yourself?CDC guidelines say that anyone with a bloodborne disease or viral infection should avoid traveling outside the home, work, school, and shopping, and contact family members.
Travelers with other infectious conditions like tuberculosis, malaria, and syphilis should also be cautious, especially when traveling abroad.
But even when traveling, everyone needs to take steps to keep themselves safe.
