Alexander Jonathan K. Ball Theocharis Tsoleridis <p>Coronaviruses are large, often spherical, enveloped, single-stranded positive-sense RNA viruses, ranging in size from 80-220 nm. Their genomes and protein structures are highly conserved. Three coronaviruses have emerged over the last 20 years as serious human pathogens: SARS-CoV was identified as the causative agent in an outbreak in 2002-2003, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) CoV emerged in 2012 and the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 emerged in 2019-2020. SARS-CoV-2 is the virus responsible for the infectious disease termed COVID-19 (<a href="" target="_blank">WHO Technical Guidance 2020</a>).</p> 2022-06-09T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
