Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, known by the acronym SARS-KoV-2 (SARS-CoV-2), is a contagious virus of the coronavirus group that causes kovid 19, a respiratory disease responsible for an ongoing pandemic. Genomic sequencing has shown that it is a positive, single-stranded RNA coronavirus. Many early cases have been linked to a large seafood and animal market in Wuhan, and the virus is thought to be of animal origin. Comparing the genetic sequences of this virus and other virus samples showed similarity with SARS-CoV (79.5%) and bat coronavirus (96%). Thus, the ultimate origin of the virus is from bats, although an intermediate host, such as pangolin, cannot be ruled out.

Terminology

During the initial epidemic in Wuhan, China, different names were used for the virus; some names that use different sources include "coronavirus" or "Wuhan coronavirus". In January 2020, the World Health Organization recommended the new coronavirus 2019 (2019-nCov) as a temporary name for the virus. This was in line with the 2015 WHO Guidelines against the Use of Geographical Locations, Animal Species or Groups of People in the Names of Diseases and Viruses. SARS ‑ CoV ‑ 2). To avoid confusion with SARS, the WHO sometimes refers to SARS ‑ CoV ‑ 2 as the “kovida 19 virus” in public health communications, and the name HCoV-19 has been included in some research articles.
