SARS-CoV-2 virus has the following characteristics: 1. Strong infectivity, long incubation period, and low mortality; 2. Diversified host cells; 3. Short duration of immunity; 4. Complex transmission media and routes; 5. Seasons and climate do not affect the transmission ability. These five characteristics make SARS-CoV-2 virus easier to survive, spread, evolve, and mutate, which can lead to global pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 is a more typical virus than SARS, MERS, Ebola and HIV. Such a virus, once parasitized on a variety of host cells, will become a "lingering" and long-term "epidemic virus". Therefore, SARS-CoV-2 virus is a type of super virus, which will bring long-term problems and challenges to human beings.
