The Emergence of COVID-19: A Multispecies Story
Origin stories about COVID-19 have circulated widely. An exotic animal market, deep in the enigmatic East, spawned a new pandemic virus. Multiple species of bat and little scaly anteaters called pa...
Research on the Evolutionary Path of COVID-19
A method of constructing the evolutionary network of COVID-19 in chronological order is proposed, and the evolutionary tree and haplotype of CO VID-19 is analysed.
Twin Mammals and COVID-19: Life and Science of the Suspects
The major aspects of life of bats and pangolins are enlighten and their potential link to COVID-19 is briefly discussed to highlight the way forward.
SARS-CoV-2 and the reproductive system: known and the unknown..!!
This review brings together the findings and observations made in the area of reproductive health during the current pandemic by compiling all the data available on the effect of SARS-CoV-2 on the reproductive system as well as vertical transmission of the virus.
COVID-19: An Updated Insight of the Pandemic
This chapter systematically summarize the origin, transmission route, molecular characterization, pathogenic mechanism, contagious nature, clinical symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, mutation and infection as well as prevention strategy of coronavirus disease based on the recently available literature.
Computational investigation for identification of potential phytochemicals and antiviral drugs as potential inhibitors for RNA-dependent RNA polymerase of COVID-19
The insilico approach for the prediction of novel drug molecules from available antiviral drugs and also from natural compounds that can be best target against RNA-dependent RNA-polymerase protein of SARS-CoV-2 which can be suitable drugs for the treatment of COVID-19 virus.
Idiosyncrasies of COVID-19; A Review
This study was carried out to review the epidemiology of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus- 2, its host and reservoir, pathogenesis, transmission, clinical manifestation and potential treatment options for the infection.
COVID-19 and animals: What do we know?
A detailed examination of the role of animals in this pandemic is essential to effectively fight against the outbreak and there is no evidence of animal-to-human transmission.
Critical Insight into the Attributes of Emerging Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in India and Across the World
DOI: 10.2174/2666796701999200623172631 Abstract: The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently announced the spread of novel coronavirus (nCoV) globally and has declared it a pandemic. The


Pangolin homology associated with 2019-nCoV
To explore potential intermediate host of a novel coronavirus is vital to rapidly control continuous COVID-19 spread. We found genomic and evolutionary evidences of the occurrence of 2019-nCoV-like
Are pangolins the intermediate host of the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) ?
It is suggested that pangolin be natural host of Betacoronavirus, with a potential to infect humans, and large surveillance of coronaviruses in pangolins could improve the understanding of the spectrum of coronaveirs in pangsolins.
Identification of 2019-nCoV related coronaviruses in Malayan pangolins in southern China
The discovery of multiple lineages of pangolin coronavirus and their similarity to 2019-nCoV suggests that pangolins should be considered as possible intermediate hosts for this novel human virus and should be removed from wet markets to prevent zoonotic transmission.
Isolation and Characterization of 2019-nCoV-like Coronavirus from Malayan Pangolins
The isolation of a coronavirus that is highly related to 2019-nCoV in the pangolins suggests that these animals have the potential to act as the intermediate host of 2019- nCoV.
A pneumonia outbreak associated with a new coronavirus of probable bat origin
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.
