Description: Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. The name "coronavirus" is derived from the Latin corona and the Greek κορώνη (korṓnē, "garland, wreath"), meaning crown or halo. The name refers to the characteristic appearance of virions (the infective form of the virus) by electron microscopy, which have a fringe of large, bulbous surface projections creating an image reminiscent of a crown or of a solar corona. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that are typically mild, such as the common cold, though rarer forms such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), and COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) can be lethal. Symptoms in humans occur 2 to 14 days after exposure including coughs, shortness of breath, and fever. Symptoms vary in other species: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea. There are yet to be vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.
