Coronavirus firstly identified in 1960, But scientists can not find where they are come from. they give this virus’s name from the crown shape. A coronavirus can found in animals and humans both.

Most coronaviruses spread a similar way other cold-causing infections do: through tainted individuals hacking and wheezing, by contacting a contaminated individual’s hands or face, or by contacting things, for example, door handles that contaminated individuals have contacted.

There are four sub-groups of coronavirus, Known as Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta. The seven types of human coronaviruses that can affect people are:

Common human coronaviruses

  1. 229E(Alpha coronavirus)
  2. NL63(Alpha coronavirus)
  3. OC43(Beta coronavirus)
  4. HKU1(Beta coronavirus)

Other human coronaviruses

  1. MERS-CoV(Beta Coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome)
  2. SARS-CoV(Beta coronavirus that causes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome)
  3. 2019-nCoV(2019 NOvel coronavirus)

Common coronavirus Symptoms

Common human coronaviruses, including types 229E, NL63, OC43, and HKU1, for the most part, cause gentle to direct upper-respiratory-tract sicknesses, similar to the basic virus. The vast majority get tainted with these infections eventually in their lives. These diseases generally keep going for a short measure of time. Side effects may incorporate. Here are some common coronavirus symptoms

  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • A general feeling of being unwell

Other Coronavirus Symptoms

Two other human coronaviruses, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV have been known to as often as possible reason serious side effects. MERS side effects typically incorporate fever, hack, and brevity of breath which regularly progress to pneumonia. Around 3 or 4 out of each 10 patients detailed with MERS have died. MERS cases keep on happening, essentially in the Arabian Peninsula. SARS side effects frequently included fever, chills, and body hurts which for the most part advanced to pneumonia. No human instances of SARS have been accounted for anyplace on the planet since 2004.


There’s an advanced new test called Reverse Transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR), which gauges the measure of viral RNA, a chain of cells that convey hereditary data, in a patient’s sputum, serum or blood. That is the reason all examples are being transported to Atlanta and tried at the Centers for Disease Control labs. 

When the test is culminated and institutionalized, it will be discharged to states. In the interim, specialists are currently attempting to fabricate a test that is speedier, simpler and less expensive — something like an HIV test, for example, that can identify straightforward antibodies.
