Coronaviruses are enveloped and single-stranded ribonucleic acid (RNA) viruses of approximately 30 kb with infections of various host species. SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) are divided into four genera; α, β, γ and δ based on their genomic structure. Alpha and beta coronaviruses infect only mammals. SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), SARS-CoV and Middle-East-Respiratory-Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) are classified to β coronaviruses.
