The FCoV is the Feline Corona virus.

In the wake of the Novel Wuhan Corona Virus, below is an informative article, shared with the kind permission of Ms Aurora Lambrecht:

Very important to keep in mind: FCoV does NOT infect humans. Commonly coronaviruses are host specific, only infecting closely related species. FCoV is genetically similar to the canine coronavirus and it has been postulated that FCoV II originated from a double recombination event involving FCoV I and canine coronavirus I.
