Coronaviruses and COVID-19
Coronaviruses were identified in the mid-1960s and are known to infect humans and a variety of animals (including birds and mammals).
Since 2002, two coronaviruses infecting animals have evolved and caused outbreaks in humans: SARS-CoV (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) in 2003, and and MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome), in 2012.
Following an outbreak of pneumonia in the city of Wuhan in China, a novel strain of coronavirus COVID-19 was detected in December 2019.
