The new coronavirus that is now popular with the title of COVID-19 around the world and boasting in spreading at a pandemic level, causing more panic than killings, is the seventh in the line of the class of coronaviruses. This family of viruses headed by the common cold or flu virus has lived in symbiosis with humans for long, and had never caused fatalities or created panic in us. Viruses such as Coronaviruses that have lived for millions of years, much longer than any other beings on the earth keep evolving for survival. Coronaviruses on the path of their evolution for survival have evolved into different types of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and now COVID-19 targeting specifically us human beings. In fact the outbreak of Coronaviruses in different forms over the past several years is a good indicator that these viruses are pushing for survival and coevolution now within the human hosts. The symbiotic and ecological option of living with Coronaviruses in peace with no panic and resistance that might be surprising, is not new in the nature as living in peace or “symbiosis” among the living creatures from plants, animals, bacteria and viruses to us humans have been a rule and part of the law of survival than exception. The symbiosis between coronaviruses and their hosts that is obligatory and not optional on part of the viruses, could be in fact beneficial and evolutionary for us. The universal entry of the coronaviruses in the recent years and now with the virulence pandemic of COVID-19, is a strong evidence of the natural selection obligation that the virus has for maintenance of our longer-term survival.
