The first human coronavirus was isolated from individuals suffering from the common cold in the 1960’s. Since then, three highly pathogenic human coronaviruses have arisen in the last two decades; SARS in 2002, MERS in 2012 and the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. It is critical we understand how current and emerging coronaviruses infect humans and more importantly, develop therapeutic agents to tackle current disease, resist future SARS-CoV-2 variants and new coronavirus-origin pandemics.
