The coronavirus spread from China has knocked all over the world. This virus has almost broken China. Along with the lives of people, it is also causing economic loss. The Chinese government is making all efforts to stop this, but so far no success has been achieved.
At present, the government has built two new hospitals for the treatment of people affected by the virus, there is a line of patients there. It is not that patients are just dying from coronavirus, people are recovering and going to their homes too. So far more than two thousand people have recovered and gone to their homes. Know that the outbreak of Coronavirus and what are the reasons behind it are being attributed.
So coronavirus spread from pangolin
After China, the corona virus is eager to take over almost the whole world. The enemy of human life, Corona has killed more than eight hundred people so far and more than thirty thousand people are affected. Chinese researchers have attributed the pangolin to the corona. According to scientists, the genetic sequence of the virus present in corona and pangolin are 99 percent similar. However, this research has not been published yet.
The link between bats and humans
Researchers engaged in an investigation into the coronavirus outbreak in China say endangered pangolins may be the missing link between bats and humans. Bats have been considered the latest carriers of the disease. According to genetic analysis, the virus spread in humans was similar to 96 percent of bats. According to Arnaud Fauntenet of the Pasteur Institute in France, the disease does not directly reach humans from bats but we think that any other animal is its mediator.
It is used in Chinese medicine method
Pangolin is a mammalian creature with a scale-like structure on its body. Through this, it is able to protect itself from other creatures. At present, such scales are only in the world. Due to eating ant and termites, it is also called ant antidote. These are protected animals. This organism is the most trafficked in the world. That is why they are in serious trouble. It is used in traditional Chinese medicine. Parts of it are used in many other diseases including skin and arthritis. Those selling pangolins in China could face a sentence of 10 or more.
Pangolin responsible for the infection
Guangzhou-based South China Agricultural University says two of its researchers, Shen Yogi and Xiao Lihua, have identified pangolins as a potential source of NCOV-2019 based on genetic comparisons of coronaviruses from animals and humans. It is learned that they are responsible for spreading infections and other things. This sequence is 99 percent identical.
The research will be published soon
An outbreak of the coronavirus emerged in December in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Seafood and wild animals were believed to reach the market in large numbers. Many people who were infected here used to work. Although the pangolin was not listed among the things sold in the market, it has been sold illegally.
Last month, scientists in Beijing claimed that snakes were the source of the coronavirus, but that theory was rejected by other researchers. On the other hand, university president Liu Yahong said that the results of the research will be published soon to help in efforts to control the coronavirus.
Research will help
Research may reveal more on the similarity of the genetic sequence. Coronavirus researcher Arinjoy Banerjee of McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada, says that a blood sample of the pangolin can reveal how it reached humans and prevent its transmission in the future.
