Coronaviruses cause respiratory and intestinal infections in humans and animals; the majority of coronavirus infections in humans are caused by species of low pathogenicity, leading to the development of symptoms of the common cold, however, they can eventually lead to serious infections in risk groups. COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is the infectious disease caused by the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which at first was temporarily named 2019-nCoV and subsequently received the name SARS-CoV-2.
