 Pathogenic Coronaviruses Of Humans And Animals; Sars, Mers, Covid-19, And Animal Coronaviruses With Zoonotic Potential

By Lisa Beltz

Pathogenic Coronaviruses of Humans and Animals: SARS, MERS, COVID-19, and Animal Coronaviruses with Zoonotic Potential PDF provides relevant information about common human coronaviruses that may mutate to increase their virulence. The addition of animal coronaviruses allows awareness of not only the potential of zoonotic transmission of coronaviruses from wild animals such as bats and rodents, but also from domestic agricultural and companion animals. The book opens with an introductory chapter on viruses, the immune system, coronaviruses, and their classifications, prevention and protection. Sections also cover history, disease, causative virus, immune response, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and surveillance. The book’s remaining chapters discuss coronaviruses with possible zoonotic transmission of domestic, semi-domestic animals and companion animals. It concludes with future perspectives of coronavirus mutations, modeling, protective measures and a discussion around pandemics and infectious diseases from around the globe.

  • Covers SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 as well as coronaviruses with possible zoonotic transmission of domestic, semi-domestic animals and companion animals
  • Complements previous studies by bringing together information that compares human and animal coronaviruses
  • Includes a glossary and coronavirus disease overviews of humans and animals
