Summary In December 2019, a cluster of patients with pneumonia of unknown cause was linked to a seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, China. A previously unknown betacoronavirus was discovered through the use of unbiased sequencing in samples from patients with pneumonia. Human airway epithelial cells were used to isolate a novel coronavirus, named 2019-nCoV, which formed a clade within the subgenus sarbecovirus, Orthocoronavirinae subfamily. Different from both MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV, 2019-nCoV is…

The New Coronavirus COVID-19 Infection
This review summarizes the relevant information about the origin and spread of SARS-CoV-2, its epidemiology and diagnostics, and the clinical course and treatment of COVID-19.
Evolutionary perspectives on novel coronaviruses identified in pneumonia cases in China
Evidence for bat origin of the third human-infecting coronavirus in less than 20 years is provided, the potential for viral spillover from animals to humans is highlighted, and evolutionary mechanisms leading to the outbreaks are discussed.
Analysis of 2019 novel coronavirus infection and clinical characteristics of outpatients: An epidemiological study from a fever clinic in Wuhan, China
Since the outbreak of 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS‐CoV‐2]) pneumonia, thousands of patients with fever or cough were flocked into fever clinic of designated hospitals in Wuhan, China, and it is almost unknown to discriminate COVID‐19 and nucleic acid negative patients based on clinical features in the fever clinics.

Identification of Coronavirus Isolated from a Patient in Korea with COVID-19
SARS-CoV-2 was isolated from putative patients with unexplained pneumonia and intermittent coughing and fever and the isolated virus was named BetaCoV/Korea/KCDC03/2020.


Isolation of a novel coronavirus from a man with pneumonia in Saudi Arabia.
The clinical picture was remarkably similar to that of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2003 and reminds us that animal coronaviruses can cause severe disease in humans.
Epidemiology, Genetic Recombination, and Pathogenesis of Coronaviruses
Identification of a novel coronavirus in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome.
The novel coronavirus might have a role in causing SARS and was detected in a variety of clinical specimens from patients with SARS but not in controls.
Coronavirus Pathogenesis
A novel coronavirus associated with severe acute respiratory syndrome.
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.
Origin and evolution of pathogenic coronaviruses
The viral factors that enabled the emergence of diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle East respiratory syndrome are explored and the diversity and potential of bat-borne coronaviruses are highlighted.
A new arenavirus in a cluster of fatal transplant-associated diseases.
The use of high-throughput sequencing during an outbreak of disease facilitated the identification of a new arenavirus transmitted through solid-organ transplantation, related to lymphocytic choriomeningitis viruses.
