The construction was performed by the neighbour joining method with use of the program MEGA6 with bootstrap values being calculated from 1,000 trees. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) clusters with closely related viruses in bats and pangolins and together with SARS-CoV and bat SARS-related coronaviruses (SARSr-CoVs) forms the sarbecoviruses. The sequences were downloaded from the GISAID database and GenBank. MERS-CoV, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus.
