Journal of Medical Virology 2020 February 25
Since December 2019, a series of unexplained pneumonia cases has been reported in Wuhan, China. On January 12, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) temporarily named this new virus as the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). On February 11, 2020, the WHO officially named the disease caused by the 2019-nCoV as Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19). The COVID-19 epidemic is spreading all over the world, especially in China. Based on the published evidence, we systematically discuss the characteristics of COVID-19 in the hope of providing a reference for future studies and help for the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic.

""Asians have a higher level of ACE2 expression in their alveolar cells than the White and African American populations"".

This is very interesting but as everyone could notice the ratio of deaths to the White population is much bigger than Asians as the transmission ratio too.
