Coronaviruses are a family of viruses whose name is linked to the "crown" formed by certain proteins on the surface of these viruses.

Coronaviruses cause diseases ranging from a simple cold (some seasonal viruses are coronaviruses) to more severe pathologies (such as the respiratory distress of MERS, SARS or COVID-19). They also cause a number of diseases in animals.
