Caption: SARS virus particle, coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM). Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is an often fatal lung disease that first appeared in China in 2002. The SARS virus is a coronavirus. Coronaviruses are named for their corona (crown) of surface proteins (dark green) that are used to attach to and penetrate their host cells. Once inside a cell, the virus particles use the cell machinery to make more copies of themselves.
