In which category does Coronavirus fall?
Coronaviruses (CoVs) are a highly diverse family of enveloped positive-sense single-stranded RNA viruses. They infect humans, other mammals and avian species, including livestock and companion animals, and are therefore not only a challenge for public health but also a veterinary and economic concern.
Current taxonomy divides the subfamily Coronavirinae into four genera:
Alphacoronavirus (which includes viruses previously in group 1)
Betacoronavirus (which includes viruses previously in group 2, most notably SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV)
Gammacoronavirus (which includes viruses previously in group 3)
Deltacoronavirus (which includes several newly described avian and swine viruses).
