Instead, it facilitates an understanding of basic virology by examining the shared processes and capabilities of viruses. Epidemiologic studies show that viral infections in developed countries are the most common cause of acute disease that does not require hospitalization. In developing countries, viral diseases also exact a heavy toll in mortality and permanent disability, especially among infants and children. Emerging viral diseases such as those due to HIV, ebola virus and hantavirus, appear by: 1. Coronaviruses cause respiratory and enteric disease in a variety of animals. In humans, the major site of virus replication is the epithelial cells of the respiratory tract and about one-third of colds are caused by coronaviruses. The symptoms are similar to those of rhinovirus colds (runny nose, sore throat, cough, headache, fever, chills.

Virology is the study of viruses, complexes of nucleic acids and proteins that have the capacity for replication in animal, plant and bacterial cells. To replicate themselves, viruses usurp functions of the host cells on which they are parasites. The viral parasite causes changes in the cell, particularly its antigenicity; moreover.
