Coronaviruses are a big family of different viruses. Some of them cause the common cold in people. Others infect animals, including bats, camels, and cattle. But how did SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19, come into being?

Here’s what we know about the virus that was first detected in Wuhan, China, in late 2019 and has set off a global pandemic.

I couldn't get this to work, then I remembered that I had set my default to Paste (Keep Text Only). It works great when I selected Paste (Keep Source Formatting).
