Animal Coronavirus Diseases: Parallels with COVID-19 in Humans

Figure showing the comparisons between animal and human coronaviruses that are discussed in our review paper

Happy to share that we have just published a review paper on “Animal Coronavirus Diseases: Parallels with COVID-19 in Humans.” This review is written with Chao Nan Lin, whom I have worked very closely with since I was a PhD student. It is hence a great privilege to be able to collaborate with him on his topic of expertise: Animal coronaviruses. This manuscript describes the similarities and differences between animal and human coronaviruses with regards to genome organization and recombination, immunopathogenesis, transmission, viral shedding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. We hope that the synthesised knowledge can help us better in managing coronavirus epidemics and design of interventions that can reduce the spread of these viruses.
