Coronaviruses represent a threat to humans, as evidenced during the 2002/2003 coronavirus infection of Severe acute respiratory syndrome or SARS-CoV.
Marburg virus causes severe hemorrhagic fever in humans, it can be considered Ebola’s cousin. The name comes from the city of Marburg an der Lahn (in Hessen, Germany) where it was first described in 1967. And it was in this city where I spent two years to conduct a post doctoral stay.
