Human coronaviruses, first characterized in the 1960s, are responsible for a substantial proportion of upper respiratory tract infections in children. Since 2003, at least 5 new human coronaviruses have been identified, including the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, which caused significant morbidity and mortality. NL63, representing a group of newly identified group I coronaviruses that includes NL and the New Haven coronavirus, has been identified worldwide. These viruses are… 
Coronaviruses: a review of their properties and diversity
TLDR
The high prevalence of coronavirus in domestic and wild animals, especially bats and birds, and the propensity for their genomes to undergo mutation and recombination may lead to emergence of new coronaviruses that could pose a serious threat to human and animal health.
Endemic and Emerging Coronavirus Pulmonary Infections
Identification of New Respiratory Viruses in the New Millennium
TLDR
This review will detail the most current clinical and epidemiological findings to all respiratory viruses discovered since 2001, including Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus, which occurred in Saudi Arabia in 2012 and presents a significant threat to human health.
Corona virus disease-2019 (covid-19) pandemic: an eerie challenge to the global community
TLDR
The enormous infusion of energy and activity around the expanding field of veterinary virology has deepened knowledge about the virology and pathogenesis of coronaviruses.
Coronavirus Diseases (COVID-19): Features, Epidemiology, Mutational variations and Treatments Across India
TLDR
A new variant of B.1.617 lineage that causes worry about many countries has been identified first in the UK but it makes the worst scenario in India, including mutants with immune prolapse E484K and N501Y mutations.
Emerging novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)—current scenario, evolutionary perspective based on genome analysis and recent developments
TLDR
The genetic analyses predict bats as the most probable source of 2019-nCoV though further investigations needed to confirm the origin of the novel virus, which has spread in 24 countries in a short span of time.
COVID-19: A Review on the Novel Coronavirus Disease Evolution, Transmission, Detection, Control and Prevention
TLDR
Current up-to-date information on the coronavirus evolution and SARS-CoV-2 modes of transmission, detection techniques and current control and prevention strategies are summarized in this review.
Pandemic of coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19): A comprehensive review
TLDR
COVID-19 is a serious disease which cause high mortality in human and also, contributed to the global economic downturn, Hence, control measures and precautions should be taken and developing effective treatment and vaccine to slow down the spread of the virus.
Novel coronavirus – SARS CoV-2
TLDR
The biology of virus has been described, replication cycle and epidemiology of COVID 19 are described, and current methods of laboratory diagnostics are discussed.

Identification of a new human coronavirus
TLDR
Screening of clinical specimens from individuals suffering from respiratory illness identified seven additional HCoV-NL63-infected individuals, indicating that the virus was widely spread within the human population.
A previously undescribed coronavirus associated with respiratory disease in humans.
TLDR
The identification and characterization of a not previously recognized coronavirus obtained from an 8-mo-old boy suffering from pneumonia is described, revealing that it is most closely related to porcine epidemic diarrhea virus and HCoV 229E.
Evidence of a Novel Human Coronavirus That Is Associated with Respiratory Tract Disease in Infants and Young Children
TLDR
The novel HCoVs identified in New Haven and The Netherlands are similar and likely represent the same species, which may have worldwide distribution and may account for a significant proportion of respiratory tract disease in infants and young children.
Identification of a novel coronavirus in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome.
TLDR
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.
Isolation and Characterization of Viruses Related to the SARS Coronavirus from Animals in Southern China
TLDR
The detection of SCoV-like viruses in small, live wild mammals in a retail market indicates a route of interspecies transmission, although the natural reservoir is not known.
A novel coronavirus associated with severe acute respiratory syndrome.
TLDR
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.
Association between a Novel Human Coronavirus and Kawasaki Disease
TLDR
Evidence of a novel human coronavirus, designated “New Haven coronav virus” (HCoVNH), in respiratory secretions from a 6-month-old infant with classic Kawasaki disease is identified and data suggest that HCoV-NH infection is associated with Kaw Osaka disease.
Coronavirus Infection in Acute Lower Respiratory Tract Disease of Infants
TLDR
The incidence of coronavirus infection in patients with pneumonia and bronchiolitis was higher than the incidences of adenoviruses, influenza, parainfluenza viruses types 1 and 2, and rhinovirus type 3 and respiratory syncytial virus, and lower only than theincidences of parain fluenza virus type 3.
