Abstract

Similar to avian influenza and Newcastle disease virus, avian coronaviruses (CoV) seem to use wild birds as reservoirs. The large variety of potential hosts raises the question of what impact avian CoV from wild birds may have on domestic poultry. Here we report surveillance data from three countries, namely Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Nigeria, showing a high genetic diversity of both gamma- and delta-coronaviruses, as well as a high diversity of avian hosts.
