Coronaviruses form a group of pathogenic, enveloped positive stranded RNA viruses that infect many species of animals including man, mouse, chicken, turkey, cat, dog, pig and cow (1,2). The target organs and outcome of infection are dependent on the strain of virus, age and genetic composition of the animals as well as the dose and route of inoculation (1). Table 1 shows a list of coronaviruses and the diseases they cause.
