When first this Corona Virus made its way on the world stage, the researchers involved in studying it called it “Novel.” Meaning, they told us new and different. After all, the Corona Virus is part of a broad range of viruses, which make up a group of diseases which plague mankind. Included in this group of Corona Virus, as some that we recognize as the common cold.
