Scientists have detected 18 more dangerous viruses in China's notorious wet markets, which can spread to pets and humans. The coronavirus is believed to have reached humans from the Sea Food Market in Wuhan, due to which 25.38 crore people have been infected so far, while more than 51 lakh have lost their lives.
Scientists analyzed 1,725 wild animals. These animals belonged to 16 species, whose samples were taken from across the country. In the study, researchers from China, the US, Belgium and Australia claimed to have found animals that are commonly hunted or eaten as an exotic food in China. Some of these were banned for trade by the Chinese government since the start of the corona pandemic.
"A total of 71 viruses were found to infect mammals, of which 45 were first reported," said study author Shuo Su from Nanjing Agricultural University of China's College of Veterinary Medicine. Of these, 18 are such, which can also infect pets and humans. However, the team did not find viruses like SARS-CoV or SARS-CoV-2 during this period.
China is constantly engaged in spreading lies regarding the origin of Coronavirus. For this, he is taking recourse to political statements, state-run news media and social media. China recently blamed America's lobsters for the coronavirus. China claimed that a cargo containing 55 boxes of Boston lobsters that landed in Shanghai on November 11, 2019, was responsible for the origin of the corona.
Let us tell you that China has been denying the news of coronavirus leaking from Wuhan's laboratory. Meanwhile, in November 2020, Chinese officials claimed that the coronavirus was found on shrimp imported from Saudi Arabia. Earlier, China had also banned beef imports from Brazil. Beijing also blamed the US military for leaking the coronavirus into China.
