Abstract :

Coronaviruses (CoVs) are large, enveloped, positive-strand RNA viruses that can be divided into 4 genera based on sequence comparisons of entire viral genomes. These are alpha, beta, delta, and gamma, of which alpha and beta CoVs are known to infect humans [1]. Since long, human corona viruses (HCoVs) have been considered the respiratory pathogens. Most people get infected with these viruses at some point in their lives. It usually lasts for a short amount of time [2]. But in last 15 years, 2 highly pathogenic HCoVssevere acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) [3] and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) [4] have emerged from animal reservoirs to cause global epidemics with alarming morbidity and mortality of 10% and 37% respectively [5, 6].
