Novel coronavirus (nCoV) is one of the most common causes of respiratory tract infection throughout the world. Coronaviruses, a genus of the Corona viridae, are enveloped single positive-stranded RNA viruses, which have the largest viral genome (26-33kb) among the RNA viruses. nCoronaviruses cause a variety of diseases in mammals and birds ranging from enteritis in cows and pigs and upper respiratory disease chickens to potentially lethal human respiratory infections.
