Abstract

Emerging and reemerging pathogens are global challenges for public health. In recent times, corona viruses have become the most important virus worldwide because of the occurrence of more than 2 thousand deaths caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in China. Rapid spread of the infection occurred in many countries. However, most cases of mortality have occurred in China. The Center for Diseases Control and Prevention and World Health Organization maintain a website that is updated frequently with new cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Here we provide a brief introduction to corona viruses and also discuss the outbreaks of recently identified SARS-CoV-2.
