Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses mainly cause respiratory tract infections. It could be mild illness (like the common cold) or lethal illness, depending on the virus. The previously discovered coronaviruses are rhinoviruses, SARS, MERS, and the recent one is COVID-19.
