Some historical fact about human coronavirus
Coronaviruses are the viruses believed to cause most of the common colds that occurs in humans, They belong to the Coronaviridae family and the Coronavirinae subfamily.
Human coronaviruses usually result in an illness in upper respiratory tract that can appear as a mild to moderate regular cold.

So the question is where the new virus come from?
this virus first popped up in Wuhan .On the people who had visited a local animal and seafood market called as the Huanan seafood market officials could only say this virus is likely hopped from an animal to humans. on the bases od new studies however, the researchers compared the 2019-nCoV genetic sequence with those in a library of viral sequences, and found that the most closely related viruses were two coronaviruses that found in bats both of those coronaviruses shared their 88% of their genetic sequence with that of 2019-nCoV.
Based on these results, the researchers said the 2019-nCoV likely originated in bats. but the problem is there no bats were sold at the Huanan seafood market that resulted to suggests that another yet-to-be-identified animal acted as a steppingstone of sorts to transmit the virus to humans.
A previous study suggested snakes, which were sold at the Huanan seafood market, as a possible source of 2019-nCoV. However, some experts have criticized to study, saying it’s unclear if coronaviruses can infect snakes.
