Clinical features and molecular epidemiology of coronavirus-HKU1-associated community-acquired pneumonia



Clinical features and molecular epidemiology of coronavirus-HKU1-associated community-acquired pneumonia



Hong Kong Medical Journal 15(Suppl. 9): 46-47



1. Coronavirus (CoV)-HKU1 accounts for 2.4% of community-acquired pneumonia. 2. Clinical features alone cannot differentiate this entity from other community-acquired pneumonia. 3. Further studies are needed to understand the significance of CoV-HKU1 in upper respiratory tract infection and its potential to cause outbreaks of acute viral respiratory illnesses.
