There isn't A coronavirus. It's a class of viruses that were discovered in the 1960s. Most are usually a nasty respiratory infection but not all that dangerous. This is the latest and maybe the worst of the bunch, the Novela Coronavirus or 2019-nCoV. It does have two somewhat well known cousins that appeared over the past decade or so. MERS and SARS.

I find the CDC infographic somewhat ironic now that the FDA said to stop advertising the alcohol based hand sanitizers are killing the flu and a few others since that would mean it's a drug and not properly tested.
