Caption: SARS virus. Artwork of a severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus particle. The SARS virus is a type of coronavirus, other types of which cause the common cold and a type of gastroenteritis. Coronaviruses take their name from their crown (corona) of surface proteins (red). These are made of glycoprotein, that binds to the cells in the virus's host, allowing it to enter them. The virus is coated in a membrane (green) that it derives from the cells that it invades. SARS is a fatal lung disease that first appeared in China in late 2002, and spread around the world through air travel.
