A rapid assay for screening samples from marine sources has been developed with a coronavirus model using mouse hepatitis virus, strain A59. Marine samples tested for antiviral activity included species of sponges, gorgonians, algae, and other marine life. These were collected from different environments in Bahamian waters by snorkel, scuba, and submersibles at depths ranging from 2 to 2700 feet.
