What Is CoronaVirus?
Viruses are small obligate intracellular parasites, that contain either RNA or DNA genome surrounded by a protective virus-coated protein coat. They transfer their RNA or DNA into the host cells so that their genome can be expressed by host cells.
Coronavirus is the type of viruses that primarily cause enzootic infections in birds and mammals but, in the last few decades, have shown to be capable of infecting humans as well. Where they cause illness like the common cold, sinuses, sore throat, nose infection, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), etc.
A review shows that coronaviruses are the enveloped positive-stranded RNA viruses. They deliver their nucleocapsid into the host cells, where they are based on the fusion of their envelope with the host cell membrane.
