    coronavirus always did that as a class, as they are a major source of the common cold. Also, there really isn't just one virus that causes colds.

    Right, because sarcasm is so easy to tell from here. In fact I was pointing this out because the title of the thread and of the article refers to the cold virus, making it sound as if coronavirus were something different.
