AbstractThe new human coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, Central China, in December 2019, has been named SARS-CoV-2 by the International Coronavirus Study Group. This coronavirus (CoV) that has already been extended to 171 countries, has a sequence identity higher than 80% with the SARS-CoV that emerged in Guandong province of South East China in 2002. This novel virus SARS-CoV-2 is causing a pandemic, certainly the most important one in the recent decades, as it has already affected 491,623 people (as of March 26th, 2020; source: John Hopkins University, Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering), of which 22,169 have died in around four months. During the first phase of the pandemic 80% of these cases (81,054) took place in China, but now European countries, especially Italy, Spain and Germany, and also USA and Iran, are taking the lead in the list of new infected people per day.
