Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) are two highly transmissible and pathogenic viruses that emerged in humans at the beginning of the 21st century. Both viruses likely originated in bats, and genetically diverse coronaviruses that are related to SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV were discovered in bats worldwide. In this Review, we summarize the current knowledge on the origin and evolution of these two pathogenic… 
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) related coronavirus in bats
TLDR
The current knowledge of CoVs on geographical distribution, genetic diversity, cross-species transmission potential and possible pathogenesis in humans is summarized for a better understanding of bat SARS-related CoVs in the context of prevention and control.
Emergence and Reemergence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) Coronaviruses
TLDR
This chapter will discuss about the alterations and variations in antigenicity, structural changes, and RNA recombination which might be responsible for the COVID-19 emergence.
Structural Design on Virus and its Diversity
TLDR
Genomic analysis revealed that SARS-CoV-2 is phylogenetically related to severe acute respiratory syndrome-like (SARS-like) bat viruses, therefore bats could be the possible primary reservoir and the intermediate source of origin and transfer to humans is not known.
The emergence of a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), their biology and therapeutic options.
TLDR
This Review summarizes current information about the emergence, origin, diversity, and epidemiology of three pathogenic coronaviruses with a specific focus on the current outbreak in Wuhan, China and discusses the clinical features and potential therapeutic options that may be effective against SARS-CoV-2.
2020 update on human coronaviruses: One health, one world
Molecular diversity of coronavirus host cell entry receptors
TLDR
The latest advances in the field of coronavirus receptors are discussed, emphasizing on the molecular and evolutionary processes that underlie coronav virus receptor usage and host range expansion.
The hallmarks of COVID-19 disease
TLDR
Recent progress in understanding the epidemiological, virological, and clinical characteristics of COVID-19 are summarized and potential targets with existing drugs for the treatment of this emerging zoonotic disease are discussed.
Systematic Comparison of Two Animal-to-Human Transmitted Human Coronaviruses: SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV
TLDR
The goal of this work is to systematically review and compare between SARS-CoV and SARS -CoV in the context of their virus incubation, originations, diagnosis and treatment methods, genomic and proteomic sequences, and pathogenic mechanisms.
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.
Evolutionary dynamics of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 genomes
TLDR
It is proposed that the interplay between Sars-CoV-2 and host RNA editing mechanisms might have partially resulted in the bias in nucleotide changes during SARS-Cov-2 evolution.

Bat origin of human coronaviruses
TLDR
Understanding the bat origin of human coronaviruses is helpful for the prediction and prevention of another pandemic emergence in the future.
SARS and MERS: recent insights into emerging coronaviruses
TLDR
The emergence of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in 2012 marked the second introduction of a highly pathogenic coronav virus into the human population in the twenty-first century, and the current state of development of measures to combat emerging coronaviruses is discussed.
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.
Global patterns in coronavirus diversity
TLDR
This study surveyed the diversity of CoVs in multiple host taxa from twenty countries to explore the factors driving viral diversity at a global scale and identified sequences representing 100 discrete phylogenetic clusters found in bats, and used ecological and epidemiologic analyses to show that patterns of CoV diversity correlate with those of bat diversity.
A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence
TLDR
A potential risk of SARS-CoV re-emergence from viruses currently circulating in bat populations is suggested, and robust viral replication both in vitro and in vivo is demonstrated.
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.
Fatal swine acute diarrhoea syndrome caused by an HKU2-related coronavirus of bat origin
TLDR
Analysis of viral samples from deceased piglets shows that a bat coronav virus was responsible for an outbreak of fatal disease in China and highlights the importance of the identification of coronavirus diversity and distribution in bats in order to mitigate future outbreaks of disease.
Close Relative of Human Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus in Bat, South Africa
TLDR
The identification of a South Africa bat derived CoV that has an even closer phylogenetic relationship with MERS-CoV is reported, and is as close as that of SARS- coV and the most closely related bat coronavirus known.
