Coronavirus are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases.Such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome and severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. A novel corona virus is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. Coronaviruses are zoonotic , meaning they are transmitted between animals and humans. Detailed investigation found that severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome – coronavirus was transmitted from civet cats to humans and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome –Coronavirus dromedary Camels to humans. The virus was first spread within a sea food market in Wuhan, China on  8th December 2019.

Even regular visa issued to foreign nationals who have traveled to coronavirus affected countries have been suspended. On March 10, 58 Indians were brought back home from coronavirus-hit Iran in a military transport aircraft of the Indian Air Force (IAF). Passengers from 12 countries are being screened, including those from Kathmandu, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia. India has imposed "some restrictions" on export of certain medical equipment to China in view of their shortage of supply in the country, and the precautions taken are in accordance with World Health Organisation's (WHO) advisory for the coronavirus outbreak.
