China bans eating wild animals after the coronavirus outbreak

China put a strict ban on eating and farming of wild animals in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic which appears to have originated from a Wuhan’s wildlife market Hubei, China.

COVID-19 and the SARS virus of 2003 both are from the coronavirus family, and both most likely started in wet markets.

Wet market is a market selling live meat, fish where people and live and dead animals including dogs, chickens, pigs, snakes, civets, and more  come into constant close contact due to which zoonotic diseases can easily transmit from animals to humans.

Scientists are trying  to figure out the cause of the COVID-19 which has created havoc around the world.

Few week ago, on the basis of genetic analyses, Chinese scientists suggested that the scaly, ant-eating pangolin was the prime suspect.

Scientists have examined the data along with three other pangolin coronavirus genome studies released last week.

According to the scientists new reserch from last week  the animal is still a contender, the mystery is far from solved.
