Abstract

The recent outbreak of the novel Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), that has taken the world by storm, is a disturbing case of severity posed by a highly dynamic viral strain. Suspected to have originated from bats, a reservoir host of many deadly viral diseases, the COVID-19 pandemic might be an alarming but a substantially preliminary instance of a much complexly evolving future of disease epidemiology, at the interface of rapid and robust genetic recombination, mutation and highly adaptable strains of the Coronaviridaefamily. Keeping these attributes in mind, the idea of host(s) as “mixing pot” is introduced through this review to capture the plausible future of the Corona virus dynamics through a vector-borne transmission.
