We present a rigorously validated and highly sensitive confirmatory real-time RT-PCR assay (1Aassay) that can be used in combination with the previously reported upEassay. Two additional RT-PCR assays for sequencing are described, targeting the RdRpgene (RdRpSeqassay) and Ngene (NSeq assay), where an insertion/deletion polymorphism might exist among different hCoV-EMC strains. Finally, a simplified and biologically safe protocol for detection of antibody response by immunofluorescence microscopy was developed using convalescent patient serum.
