Coronavirus

While at the hospital yesterday I noticed signs here and there talking about different illnesses and encouraging handwashing. Ok, so that's pretty normal. But then I saw the sign for coronavirus...

CORONAVIRUS - my definition
-a debilitating illness following a night of drinking coronas excessively

The real definition from Wikipedia
-Coronaviruses primarily infect the upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tract of mammals and birds. Four to five different currently known strains of coronaviruses infect humans. The most publicized human coronavirus, SARS-CoV which causes SARS, has a unique pathogenesis because it causes both upper and lower respiratory tract infections and can also cause gastroenteritis. Coronaviruses are believed to cause a significant percentage of all common colds in human adults. Coronaviruses cause colds in humans primarily in the winter and early spring seasons.
