Family of single-stranded RNA viruses responsible for respiratory diseases. The outer envelope of the virus has club-shaped projections that radiate outwards and give a charateristic corona appearance to negatively stained virions.
Coronaviridae is a family of enveloped, positive-stranded RNA viruses. The viral genome is 26–32 kb in length. Virions are spherical, 120–160 nm across (Coronavirinae), bacilliform, 170–200 by 75–88 nm (Bafinivirus) or found as a mixture of both, with bacilliform particles characteristically bent into crescents (Torovirus). The particles a...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronaviridae
