The coronavirus may become seasonal and return every winter, as other strains of coronaviruses do, experts say.

According to The Telegraph, nearly 20% of patients with confirmed coronavirus COVID-19 experience complications now, and the mortality rate is about 2%. 

Currently seven coronaviruses have infected humans with most causing cold-like symptoms. However, it may take several years before COVID-19 becomes a common respiratory infection.

According to experts, it is recommended to give up kisses, hugs, and wash hands regularly to avoid infection.
