The above phylogenetic tree (generated by the UK Health Protection Agency – HPA) is of the partial sequence from the coronavirus polymerase gene (nsp12) from the Qatar case (49M) demonstrates the novel aspect of this cornonavirus (CoV). The HPA used a 208 base pair fragment representing positions 15303-15510 of the closet match, Bat coronovirus HKU5-5, sequenced by researchers at The University of Hong Kong from an isolate from Guangdong Province. The fragment had 35 differences (83% identity), in contrast to the Netherlands sequence from the index case (60M who died in Saudi Arabia), which had 1 difference (99.5% identity).
