Scientists from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention of China revealed the truth about the origin of coronavirus. It is reported by The Sun.
Researchers tested samples from the seafood market in Wuhan, which were considered the original source of infection, and found no signs of the disease. Thus, the first case of human infection with coronavirus occurred, most likely, not in the market, but somewhere else.
Experts also proved that 13 initial cases of virus infection in China are in no way related to the market.
Nevertheless, the version that the virus was transmitted to humans from bats was confirmed.
According to the latest data, more than 84 thousand cases of coronavirus infection have been recorded in China. In total, more than 4.5 thousand people died in the country as a result of a pandemic.
An outbreak of COVID-19 pneumonia caused by a new type of coronavirus was first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan. On March 11, WHO announced that the situation could be described as a pandemic.
