Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus from the coronavirus family (1) regarded as enveloped, positive-sense, single-stranded ribonucleic acid (RNA) viruses with helical symmetric nucleocapsid (2). According to the whole genome sequencing and phylogenetic analysis of coronavirus strains, a distinct clade of betacoronavirus is shown to be associated with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (3).

The disease is known as COVID-19.
