Before we begin, let's clear up some confusion around terminology. Coronavirus is simply the common name for Coronaviridae, a family of viruses characterized by their unique, crown-like morphology when viewed under an electron microscope that was first discovered in the 1960s.
"Coronavirus is not interchangeable with COVID-19." - Virus Engine
COVID-19 is one of the newest and possibly the most infamous member of this family. Other notable members include Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) which you may be familiar with. These strains have claimed the lives of 774 and 851, respectively.
"SARS set off a panic about global spread and contagion at a time when globalism and social contagion were issues simmering nervously in the West." - Siddhartha Mukherjee, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer
First discovered in Wuhan, Hubei of China in December 2019, experts theorize that COVID-19 originates from a large seafood and animal market. There have been thousands more testing positive since without ever nearing these markets, suggesting person-to-person spread. On January 30, the CDC confirms person-to-person spread in the US.
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today confirmed that the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has spread between two people in the United States, representing the first instance of person-to-person spread with this new virus here." - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Organizations like Virus Engine are hard at work developing tools to help the affected population. Special mention needs to be given to the following entities for developing a vaccine-based solution to 2019-nCov:
Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention
The team of Yuen Kwok-yung at the University of Hong Kong
University of Queensland
International Vaccine Centre (VIDO-InterVac) at the University of Saskatchewan
The Department of Medicine at Imperial College London
