The outbreak of 2019-nCoV in the central Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of 2019 poses unprecedent public health challenges to both China and the rest world1. The new coronavirus shares high sequence identity to SARS-CoV and a newly identified bat coronavirus2. While bats may be the reservoir host for various coronaviruses, whether 2019-nCoV has other hosts is still ambiguous. In this study, one coronavirus isolated from Malayan pangolins showed 100%, 98.2%, 96.7% and 90.4% amino acid identity… Expand
Are pangolins the intermediate host of the 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)?
TLDR
The molecular and phylogenetic analyses showed that this pangolin coronavirus (pangolin-CoV-2020) is genetically related to the SARS- coV-2 as well as a group of bat coronaviruses but do not support the Sars-Cov-2 emerged directly from the pangolins. Expand
Probable Pangolin Origin of SARS-CoV-2 Associated with the COVID-19 Outbreak

On the origin and continuing evolution of SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
The results suggest that the development of new variations in functional sites in the receptor-binding domain of the spike seen in SARS-CoV-2 and viruses from pangolin SARSr-CoVs are likely caused by mutations and natural selection besides recombination. Expand
Coronavirus Disease 2019–COVID-19

Isolation and characterization of a bat SARS-like coronavirus that uses the ACE2 receptor
TLDR
These results provide the strongest evidence to date that Chinese horseshoe bats are natural reservoirs of SARS-CoV, and that intermediate hosts may not be necessary for direct human infection by some bat SL-CoVs, and highlight the importance of pathogen-discovery programs targeting high-risk wildlife groups in emerging disease hotspots. Expand
Genomic characterisation and epidemiology of 2019 novel coronavirus: implications for virus origins and receptor binding
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis suggests that bats might be the original host of this virus, an animal sold at the seafood market in Wuhan might represent an intermediate host facilitating the emergence of the virus in humans. Expand
A pneumonia outbreak associated with a new coronavirus of probable bat origin
TLDR
Identification and characterization of a new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which caused an epidemic of acute respiratory syndrome in humans in Wuhan, China, and it is shown that this virus belongs to the species of SARSr-CoV, indicates that the virus is related to a bat coronav virus. Expand
Discovery of a rich gene pool of bat SARS-related coronaviruses provides new insights into the origin of SARS coronavirus
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the direct progenitor of SARS-CoV may have originated after sequential recombination events between the precursors of these SARSr-CoVs, and highlights the necessity of preparedness for future emergence of Sars-like diseases. Expand

From SARS to MERS, Thrusting Coronaviruses into the Spotlight
TLDR
The research still needed to fully elucidate the pathogenic mechanism of these viruses, to construct reproducible animal models, and ultimately develop countermeasures to conquer not only SARS-CoV and MERS-coV, but also these emerging coronaviral diseases are outlined. Expand
Co-circulation of three camel coronavirus species and recombination of MERS-CoVs in Saudi Arabia
TLDR
Camels serve as an important reservoir for the maintenance and diversification of the MERS-CoVs and are the source of human infections with this virus, according to surveillance in Saudi Arabia in 2014 and 2015. Expand
A new coronavirus associated with human respiratory disease in China
TLDR
Phylogenetic and metagenomic analyses of the complete viral genome of a new coronavirus from the family Coronaviridae reveal that the virus is closely related to a group of SARS-like coronaviruses found in bats in China. Expand
