surveillance of bat coronaviruses in kenya identifies relatives of human coronaviruses nl63 and 229e and their recombination history.bats harbor a large diversity of coronaviruses (covs), several of which are related to zoonotic pathogens that cause severe disease in humans. our screening of bat samples collected in kenya from 2007 to 2010 not only detected rna from several novel covs but, more significantly, identified sequences that were closely related to human covs nl63 and 229e, suggesting that these two human viruses originate from bats. we also demonstrated that human cov nl63 is a recombinant between nl63-like viruses ...201728077633
