A novel coronavirus is associated with this outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome, and the evidence indicates that this virus has an etiologic role in SARS. Expand
Characterization of a Novel Coronavirus Associated with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome
Phylogenetic analyses and sequence comparisons showed that SARS-CoV is not closelyrelated to any of the previouslycharacterized coronaviruses. Expand
Genetic identification of a hantavirus associated with an outbreak of acute respiratory illness.
A mysterious respiratory illness with high mortality was recently reported in the southwestern United States and nucleotide sequence analysis revealed the associated virus to be a new hantavirus and provided a direct genetic link between infection in patients and rodents. Expand
Nipah virus: a recently emergent deadly paramyxovirus.
Electron microscopic, serologic, and genetic studies indicate that the Nipah virus belongs to the family Paramyxoviridae and is most closely related to the recently discovered Hendra virus, and it is suggested that these two viruses are representative of a new genus within the familyparamyxviridae.

Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread
Chloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture and the indirect immunofluorescence assay described herein represents a simple and rapid method for screening SARS-CoV antiviral compounds. Expand
Multiple Ebola Virus Transmission Events and Rapid Decline of Central African Wildlife
Recovered carcasses were infected by a variety of Ebola strains, suggesting that Ebola outbreaks in great apes result from multiple virus introductions from the natural host. Expand
Newly Discovered Ebola Virus Associated with Hemorrhagic Fever Outbreak in Uganda
Due to the sequence divergence of this new virus relative to all previously recognized ebolaviruses, these findings have important implications for design of future diagnostic assays to monitor Ebola HF disease in humans and animals, and ongoing efforts to develop effective antivirals and vaccines.

Nipah virus, not previously detected in India, caused an outbreak of febrile encephalitis in West Bengal, leading to an investigation into how the virus spread in the state. Expand
Outbreak of Nipah-virus infection among abattoir workers in Singapore
Infection with Nipah virus caused an encephalitis illness with characteristic focal areas of increased intensity seen on MRI, and the disease may present as an atypical pneumonia. Expand
Discovery of Swine as a Host for the Reston ebolavirus
Domestic swine in the Philippines, experiencing unusually severe outbreaks of porcine reproductive and respiratory disease syndrome, have now been discovered to host Reston ebolavirus (REBOV), the only member of Filoviridae that has not been associated with disease in humans, its emergence in the human food chain is of concern.
