Many research suggested that some animals such as rats,bats,snakes etc really among the primary animals that cause the virus. A coronavirus one of a number viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, the viruses cause respiratory infection including the common cold.
Previous research suggested that snakes could be the likelist source of the new coronavirus. But a new study finds strong evidence that bats are where the infection actually originated. However, snakes may not be entirely innocent.
Moreover, the most recently research also finds out that Pangolins are the main animal that cause virus. Pangolins or scaly anteaters are mammals of the order Pholidota. The one extant family, Manidae has three general: Manis which comprises four species living in Asia; Phataginus which comprises two species living in Africa and Smutsia which comprises two species also living in Africa.
In the beginning, many of those infected worked or shopped at a wholesale seafood market in Wuhan,China, which also live and freshly slaughter animals.
The virus typically causes respiratory illnesses like a common cold.
The coronavirus is similar to two viruses that circulate in bats but it might have skipped through another species before infecting humans.
It is not clear whether any bats or pangolins, live or dead, were on sale in December at the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan, where more than half of the people first identified with the virus had shopped. And it is possible that the viral leap into human occurs somewhere else, as some early cases occurred in people with no known link to it.
However, China’s leader, who has been little seen since the outbreak began was shown publicly overseeing efforts to contain the coronavirus.
