What is COVID-19?
Excellent Candidate Approach
- Coronavirus is an enveloped, positive single-strand RNA virus. It belongs to the orthocoronavirinae subfamily, with other variations like SARS-CoV. Coronavirus is an umbrella term covering all many subtypes of this virus, most of which would cause nothing more harmful than a common cold.
- SARS-CoV-2 is the subtype of coronavirus that causes COVID-19. It is a zoonotic virus, which means it is transmissible from animals to humans.
- COVID-19 is technically the term given to the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 - not to the virus that causes it.
