Coronaviruses have the potential to cause severe transmissible human disease, as demonstrated by the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak of 2003. We describe here the clinical and virological features of a novel coronavirus infection causing severe respiratory illness in a patient transferred to London, United Kingdom, from the Gulf region of the Middle East.

TLDR
Main symptoms upon initial presentation were protracted fever and diarrhoea, during hospitalisation he developed bilateral pneumonia and his condition worsened.
A patient with severe respiratory failure caused by novel human coronavirus
TLDR
An infection with a novel human coronavirus was confirmed and found to be the reason for rapidly progressive respiratory failure of a 45-year-old patient who developed severe acute respiratory distress syndrome accompanied by renal failure.

Novel serological tests allowed for the detection of otherwise unrecognized cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus infection among contacts in a hospital-associated respiratory illness
High prevalence of common respiratory viruses and no evidence of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus in Hajj pilgrims returning to Ghana, 2013
TLDR
The return of infected pilgrims to their home countries with a putative spread of MERS‐CoV necessitating further surveillance necessitates further surveillance.
Enhanced MERS Coronavirus Surveillance of Travelers from the Middle East to England
During the first year of enhanced MERS coronavirus surveillance in England, 77 persons traveling from the Middle East had acute respiratory illness and were tested for the virus. Infection was
Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus: a comprehensive review
TLDR
A comprehensive review of published literature and epidemiology of the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus is performed, which summarized the virological aspects of the infection and reviewed the animal models used as well as vaccination and antiviral tested against it.

TLDR
No other cases of MERS-CoV infection were identified among the index case’s 123 contacts, nor among 39 contacts of the secondary case, during the 10-day follow-up period.
Asymptomatic Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Infection in Rabbits
ABSTRACT The ability of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) to infect small animal species may be restricted given the fact that mice, ferrets, and hamsters were shown to resist
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS CoV): Update 2013
TLDR
Limited human-to-human transmission has occurred within several clusters, as individuals without a recent travel history have become infected after exposure to an ill returned traveler.

Laboratory diagnosis of SARS.
TLDR
Developments in the dissection of the human immune response to SARS indicate that serological tests on convalescent sera are essential to confirm SARS infection, given the sub-optimal predictive value of molecular detection tests performed during acute SARS illness.
Cultivation of a Novel Type of Common-cold Virus in Organ Cultures
TLDR
In the past four years efforts have been made to discover something of the nature of such viruses and to devise methods of cultivating them in the laboratory and some success has been achieved and is reported in this paper.

Genomic Characterization of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Related Coronavirus in European Bats and Classification of Coronaviruses Based on Partial RNA-Dependent RNA Polymerase Gene Sequences
TLDR
An evaluation of CoV in rhinolophid and vespertilionid bat species common in Europe found that proteins 3b and 6 were highly divergent from those proteins in all known SARS-related CoV, highlighting the importance of assessments of the zoonotic potential of widely distributed bat-borne CoV.

TLDR
Two real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction assays for a novel human coronavirus, targeting regions upstream of the E gene (upE) or within open reading frame (ORF)1b, respectively, observed no cross-reactivity with coronaviruses OC43, NL63, 229E, SARS-CoV or with 92 clinical specimens containing common human respiratory viruses.
