Abstract

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a family of viruses that cause the common cold and severe diseases such as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) [1–3]. Near the end of 2019, a novel strain named SARS-CoV-2 [4], and previously not identified in humans caused the outbreak of a new disease (commonly known as COVID19) that started in China and is rapidly spreading in Asia, Europe, the USA, Australia and the rest of the world. Like SARS-CoV and MERSCoV, SARS-CoV-2 is a zoonosis in which bats are probably the source of the virus, and other mammals were intermediary hosts that subsequently infected humans
