Especially some of the Genus human coronaviruses, due to their high infectivity, instant outbreak and high fatality, have caused widespread and extensive social panic. By summing up features, classification, genomic structure, infection mechanism, origin and evolution rule of coronavirus, as well as its route of transmission and influence factor, the paper can enable people to have the relevant cognition and understanding of coronavirus, and provide the theoretical support for prevention and treatment of coronavirus infection.

Key words: coronavirus, gene mutation, virus transmission
