We are currently experiencing an unprecedented global event. The outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) – now officially a pandemic – has caused apprehension globally, ultimately resulting in lockdowns, travel bans, panic buying, and financial market turmoil.
Scammers, too, have taken notice. Emergencies offer golden opportunities for con artists to launch fraudulent campaigns that feed off, and cash in on, the climate of concern. Against the backdrop of a disease that has so far caused more than 4,000 deaths and continues to spread, scammers have wasted no time in playing on people’s fears or evoking feelings of compassion.
Some cybercriminals clearly think that all their Christmases have come at once: an anxious population, vulnerable people at the highest risk, excessive demand for goods no longer in stock, and masses of misinformation sloshing around on social media – all this equates to a massive opportunity to prey on people and attempt to defraud them while they are at their most susceptible.
Symptoms of Coronavirus
The COVID-19 virus affects different people in different ways. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease and most infected people will develop mild to moderate symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment. People who have underlying medical conditions and those over 60 years old have a higher risk of developing severe disease and death.
Common symptoms include:
- – tiredness
- – dry cough.
Other symptoms include:
- – shortness of breath
- – aches and pains
- – sore throat
- – and very few people will report diarrhea, nausea or a runny nose.
People with mild symptoms who are otherwise healthy should self-isolate and contact their medical provider or a COVID-19 information line for advice on testing and referral.
People with fever, cough or difficulty breathing should call their doctor and seek medical attention.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has imposed a nationwide lockdown in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
The restrictions came into force at midnight local time (18:30 GMT) and will be enforced for 21 days.
“There will be a total ban on venturing out of your homes,” Mr. Modi said in a televised address.
He appealed for people not to panic – but crowds quickly mobbed stores in the capital, Delhi, and other cities.
Correspondents say it is not clear how – or even if – people will now be allowed out to buy food and other essentials.

Where the whole world is surviving with the major problem “coronavirus (covid-19)” but there are few companies which are promoting themself by spreading less awareness about coronavirus. But there are also some companies which are spreading awareness without their brand promotions. thus, therefore, thus, however
I received this message from textlocal

I received this notification from Gaana
( Gaana is promoting their services at the time where whole world is fighting with corona virus economically. And Gaana is using corona virus as profit making for their services.)
After receiving these messages and notifications one thing comes in my mind that the whole world is surviving from the major disease “coronavirus(covid-19)” people are dying just because of fewer facilities to fighting with this virus and lack of knowledge about solution. But these companies are promoting themselves instead of telling people the right solution of awareness. thus, therefore, however
Therefore, kindly please avoid these fake brand promotions and stay at home customer’s safety is our first priority. Nexahost
