A coronavirus disease, coronavirus respiratory syndrome, coronavirus pneumonia, coronavirus flu, or any other variant, is a disease caused by members of the coronavirus family. Coronaviruses cause different coronavirus diseases including severe acute respiratory syndrome, Middle East respiratory syndrome, and coronavirus disease 2019. Some strains of coronaviruses can also cause the common cold. The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak, caused by COVID-19, was declared a pandemic by the World...
Corona is derived from Latin corōna, meaning "crown, garland"; Virus also comes from Latin, where it means "slimy liquid" or "poison".
Coronavirus disease was first discovered in humans in the 1930s. The virus, Human coronavirus 229E was first isolated in 1965. Subsequently, six further coronaviridae were identified in humans, these being the common Human coronavirus NL63, Human coronavirus OC43, Human coronavirus HKU1, as well as novel MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2. HCoV-229E and HCoV-NL63 are Alphacoronavirus, while HCoV-OC43, HCoV-HKU1, MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 are Betacoronavirus. In November 2002 an outbreak o
Coronaviruses have been recognized as causing pathological conditions in veterinary medicine since the 1930s. They infect a range of animals such as swine, cattle, horses, camels, cats, dogs, rodents, birds, bats, and other wildlife. The majority of animal-related coronaviruses infect the intestinal tract and are transmitted by a fecal-oral route.
