Coronavirus molecules have characteristic protein particles that form what is almost like a ring, halo, or crown (aka 'corona') around the virus particle. These projections are seen when the virus is outside of a "host" cell. In other words when you see images of this spiky looking crown around a cell, you are seeing the infective form of coronavirus, ready to attack and deliver its RNA to a host cell and begin multiplying like crazy to cause infection. Coronaviruses cause different types of infections in different species. Coronaviruses can have one effect in, say a chicken or duck, and another effect in pigs and horses. In humans coronaviruses are mainly known to cause respiratory tract infections that vary in severity. In some cases symptoms are similar to a cold or flu. However human coronaviruses can cause or develop into lethal diseases like COVID-19 or SARS.
The really scary thing about coronaviruses, and especially COVID-19 there simply aren't ways to prevent human coronavirus infections. That is to say, we can't inoculate against them the way we can with other viruses. There are no vaccines or antiviral drugs that will make us immune. Doctors and hospitals can help manage symptoms but cannot prevent transmission.
There have been many examples of coronavirus throughout history and, according to wikipedia, their origin seems to be linked to bats and birds.
At the end of the day coronaviruses are not unique to our era. They have been around for centuries, really. However we are now dealing with the complex effect of how viruses in general are capable of changing and mutating into lethal strains that our immune system cannot stop from infecting us if we are exposed. It's clear that the entire world has changed the way it looks at cleaning, disinfecting, and protecting against the spread of viruses.
