			First reported from Wuhan, The People's
			Republic of China, on 31 December 2019, the
			ongoing outbreak of a novel coronavirus
			(2019-nCoV) causes great global concerns.
			Based on the advice of the International Health
			Regulations Emergency Committee and the
			fact that to date 24 other countries also
			reported cases, the WHO Director-General
			declared that the outbreak of 2019-nCoV
			constitutes a Public Health Emergency of
			International Concern on 30 January 2020.
			Together with the other two highly pathogenic
			coronaviruses, the
			severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus
			(SARS-CoV) and
			Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus
			(MERS-CoV), 2019-nCov and other yet to be
			identified coronaviruses pose a global threat to
			public health. In this mini-review, we provide a
			brief introduction to the pathology and
			pathogenesis of SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV
			and extrapolate this knowledge to the newly
			identified 2019-nCoV.
