Abstract

To have a better understanding of the coronavirus, you have to know what the virus is. The Coronaviruses (CoVs) form part of the viruses that can cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. Currently, the whole world experiences the SARS-CoV-2 virus and measures have been implemented to prevent the spread of the virus and minimise the risk to the global population.
