Aim:  This study has two objectives: to study the clinical symptoms associated with the detection of the four human coronaviruses (HCoVs), 229E, OC43, NL63 and HKU1 types, in the respiratory specimens sampled from hospitalised children in France between September 2004 and May 2005; and to develop a multiplex reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT‐PCR) assay allowing for the simultaneous detection of the four HCoVs. 
Epidemiological and clinical features of human coronavirus infections among different subsets of patients
TLDR
A comprehensive 9‐year study on HCoVs by analyzing 1137 respiratory samples from four subsets of patients in São Paulo, Brazil finds that coronaviruses in general community, with comorbidities, and hospitalized patients have similar patterns of infection.
Human coronaviruses in persons with acute respiratory infections in Ghana
TLDR
None of the respiratory specimens tested were positive for MERS-CoV, indicating the absence of MERS -CoV infection in Ghana between January 2013 and March 2014.
Detection of four human coronaviruses in respiratory infections in children: A one‐year study in Colorado
TLDR
Pediatric respiratory specimens submitted to a diagnostic virology laboratory over a 1‐year period were tested for RNA of four HCoVs using sensitive RT‐PCR assays, raising the possibility that HCoV may play a role in gastrointestinal and CNS disease.
Epidemiology and Clinical Characteristics of Human Coronaviruses-Associated Infections in Children: A Multi-Center Study
TLDR
HCoV-associated infections exhibit marked seasonality with peaks in winter, and patients with lower respiratory tract infection, a history of prematurity, or underlying chronic diseases may progress to a severe course and may need oxygen therapy.
Epidemiology and Clinical Features of Human Coronaviruses in the Pediatric Population
TLDR
Children in the community with HCoV detected generally had mild illness as demonstrated by few medically attended cases, but in hospitalized children, young age and CCCs, but not H coV type, were associated with increased severity of illness.
Human Coronaviruses Associated with Upper Respiratory Tract Infections in Three Rural Areas of Ghana
TLDR
HCoVs could play significant role in causing upper respiratory tract infections among adults and older children in rural areas of Ghana and were found to be seasonally dependent with significant detections in the harmattan season and wet season.
Coronavirus HKU 1 infection with bronchiolitis, pericardial effusion and acute respiratory failure in obese adult female
TLDR
A case of radiologically demonstrated CoV HKU 1-related bronchiolitis with acute respiratory failure in an adult female without significant comorbidities except obesity is described.
Human Coronavirus Infections in Israel: Epidemiology, Clinical Symptoms and Summer Seasonality of HCoV-HKU1
TLDR
HCoV clinical symptoms were more severe than those of RSV infections but milder than influenza symptoms, and while it was absent from the public winter survey, 22.6% of the patients were HCoV-HKU1 positives, mainly during the spring-summer period.
Human Coronavirus in Hospitalized Children With Respiratory Tract Infections: A 9-Year Population-Based Study From Norway
TLDR
HCoVs are associated with a substantial burden of RTIs in hospitalized children in need of hospitalization and a high HCoV genomic load was associated with RTI.

TLDR
The recently discovered HCoVs NL63 and HKU1 contribute significantly to the overall spectrum of coronavirus infection and are suggested to contribute to respiratory symptoms in most cases.
Croup Is Associated with the Novel Coronavirus NL63
TLDR
HCoV-NL63 infections occur frequently in young children with LRTI and show a strong association with croup, suggesting a causal relationship.
Impact of human coronavirus infections in otherwise healthy children who attended an emergency department†
TLDR
It is suggested that H CoV‐229E and HCoV‐OC43 have a limited clinical and socioeconomic impact on otherwise healthy children and their household contacts, and the HCo V‐NL63 identified recently does not seem to be any different.

TLDR
On the basis of this report, coronaviruses should be considered as potential causative microorganisms of pneumonia in immunocompromised patients.
Human respiratory coronavirus HKU1 versus other coronavirus infections in Italian hospitalised patients
RESPIRATORY CORONAVIRUS INFECTIONS IN CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN TWO YEARS OF AGE
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to determine the presence of HCoV in a set of NPA and MEF specimens collected from infants in association with upper respiratory infection or AOM, and to evaluate the applicability of this technique to the analysis of large numbers of specimens.
Human Coronavirus NL-63 Infections in Children: a 1-Year Study
TLDR
Results provide further evidence of the importance of HCoV-NL63 in ARI in children and the role of this virus in public health remains unclear.
Clinical Disease in Children Associated With Newly Described Coronavirus Subtypes
TLDR
The recently discovered coronavirus subtypes NL63 and HKU1 accounted for the majority of coronaviruses detected in a cohort of mostly hospitalized children with respiratory symptoms, and new subtypes likely represent a substantial portion of previously unexplained respiratory illnesses.
An Outbreak of Coronavirus OC43 Respiratory Infection in Normandy, France
TLDR
This study shows that an outbreak of HCoV OC43 respiratory infection was responsible for the lower respiratory tract symptoms observed in nearly one-third of patients identified by active surveillance for coronavirus infection.
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.
