SARS-CoV-2 host diversity: An update of natural infections and experimental evidence
Evolutionary origins of the SARS-CoV-2 sarbecovirus lineage responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic
TLDR
Estimates are obtained from three approaches that the most likely divergence date of SARS-CoV-2 from its most closely related available bat sequences ranges from 1948 to 1982, indicating that there are high levels of co-infection in horseshoe bats and that the viral pool can generate novel allele combinations and substantial genetic diversity.
A Generalized Overview of SARS-CoV-2: Where Does the Current Knowledge Stand?
TLDR
A comprehensive insight on the recently emerged Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) including its origin, transmission mechanism, pathophysiology and updated treatment methods is provided.
Molecular epidemiology of SARS CoV-2: a review of current data on genetic variability of the virus.
TLDR
This review aims to provide concise data on the SARS CoV-2 genomics, molecular evolution and variability with special consideration of the disease course, and investigates differences in mortality between south-European and north-European countries.
Different Cases of SARS-CoV-2 Infection and Its Impact on Health and Economy with Special Emphasis on Antiviral Drug Targets
TLDR
The present World scenario related to COVID infection, focuses on its origin and also future possibilities for a COVID free future.
Hypothesis of Potential Evolution of SARS-CoV-2 through Hybridization of SARS-CoV-1 with Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Mycobacterium avium naturally inside an immunocompromised Pangolin
TLDR
The proposed origin of the novel virus; SARS-CoV-2 explained the abnormal clinical findings such as disseminated infection, blood clotting, hyperpigmentation in some cases and Kawasaki like syndrome in kids.
The Comparison of SARS-CoV-2, SARS-CoV, and MERS-CoV Genome and Spike Protein Variations
TLDR
It is suggested that these differences may increase the affinity between SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein to its hACE2 receptor which caused SARS/MERS/CoV becomes more infective and spread wider than SAR’s CoV and MERS- coV, in turn.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 virus-like particle and its application in Chinese medical research
TLDR
Application of the VLP model provides a safe methodology to strengthen the response systems of Chinese medicine in preventing and controlling newly identified infectious diseases and offers collaborative opportunities for interdisciplinary deciphering of molecular and biological basis of anti-viral TCM formulas.
Case series of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in a military recruit school: clinical, sanitary and logistical implications
TLDR
Young healthy recruits often showed a mild course of COVID-19 with rapid symptom decline but were persistent SARS-CoV-2 carriers, illustrating how asymptomatic patients may be responsible for covert viral transmission.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus: The species and its viruses – a statement of the Coronavirus Study Group
TLDR
The Coronavirus Study Group (CSG) of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses assessed the novelty of the human pathogen tentatively named 2019-nCoV and formally recognizes this virus as a sister to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
On the interactions of the receptor-binding domain of SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins with monoclonal antibodies and the receptor ACE2
TLDR
Based on physical chemical analysis and free energies estimates, light is shed on the involved molecular recognition processes, their clinical aspects, the implications for drug developments, and structural modifications on the CR3022 antibody are suggested that would improve its binding affinities for SARS-CoV-2 and contribute to address the ongoing international health crisis.

Consensus statement: Virus taxonomy in the age of metagenomics
TLDR
The rationale for why metagenomic sequence data should, and how it can, be incorporated into the ICTV taxonomy is considered, and present proposals that have been endorsed by the Executive Committee of the ITV.

TLDR
This work reviews MERS-CoV, covering its proposed origins, route of transmission, treatment options, and future perspectives, and reveals a wealth of information about the pathophysiology, proposed animal reservoir, and intermediate host.
Structural basis for potent neutralization of SARS-CoV-2 and role of antibody affinity maturation
TLDR
The X-ray crystal structure of a potent neutralizing monoclonal antibody, CV30, isolated from a patient infected with SARS-CoV-2 is determined, revealing CV30’s epitope overlaps with the human ACE2 receptor binding site thus providing the structural basis for its neutralization by preventing ACE2 binding.
