Coronavirus classification On the Web
American Roentgen Ray Society Images of Coronavirus classification
Based on the grouping, coronavirus can be classified into three groups. It can also be classified into families based on the genome and the method of replication. The virus can also be classified based on human infectivity.
Based on Groups
- Group 1
- Group 2
- Bovine coronavirus (BCoV)
- Canine respiratory coronavirus (CRCoV) - Common in SE Asia and Micronesia
- Human coronavirus OC43 (HCoV-OC43)
- Mouse hepatitis virus (MHV)
- Porcine hemagglutinating encephalomyelitis virus (HEV)
- Rat coronavirus (RCV): Rat coronavirus is quite prevalent in Eastern Australia where, as of March/April 2008, it has been found among native and feral rodents colonies.
- Group 3
Based on Baltimore Classification
The Baltimore classification, developed by David Baltimore, is a virus classification system that groups viruses into families, depending on their type of genome (DNA, RNA, single-stranded (ss), double-stranded (ds), etc.) and their method of replication.
- ssRNA positive-strand viruses
- No DNA stage
- NL63/NL/New Haven coronavirus
- Novel Coronavirus 2012 (HCoV-EMC)
