New types of coronavirus in animals are passed on to humans.
In China, bats have found new types of coronavirus.
According to Chinese scientists, the discovery was made in southwest China. In addition, virologists note that similar strains of Sars-CoV-2 have been found in animals and outside of China, in particular, in the countries of South Asia.
According to them, the virus first adapted in the body of representatives of the squad of wings. The next in the Sars-CoV-2 distribution chain could be a pangoline. This representative of Asian fauna is quite often a commodity of smugglers, in particular from India.
The opinion of Chinese colleagues also supported the University of Sydney Australia. It is stated here that before adapting to the human body, the coronavirus had been circulating in the animal world for some time.
In addition, scientists believe that the first human infection could have occurred not in Wuhan or even in Hubei Province. Also, according to virologists, it would take some more time and effort to rule out ‘interference’ in the spread of the virus strain that caused the pandemic in the world and other animal species.
