  The world is alarmed by the new viral epidemics such as the novel 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak that can be lethal.

  Coronaviruses are from the subfamily Orthocoronavirinae in the family Coronaviridae, in the order Nidovirales. Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and with a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. The genomic size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 26 to 32 kilobases, the largest for an RNA virus [1].

Keywords: Coronavirus; Covid-19
