Coronaviruses are ubiquitous in nature and cause several diseases in infected hosts (Robb and Bond, 1979a). The genomic RNA of coronaviruses has been extensively studied in recent years (Lomneczi and Kennedy, 1977; Yogo et al., 1977; Lai and Stohlman, 1978; Wege et al., 1978; Macnaughton and Madge, 1978; Guy and Brian, 1979). These studies have shown that the coronavirus genome is a large, single stranded RNA which is polyadenylated and of positive polarity.
