Coronavirus: Snakes The Likely Cause Of Deadly Chinese Virus by ikorodureporta: 3:09am On Jan 23, 2020
Humans likely got the deadly Chinese coronavirus from SNAKES sold at the Wuhan market, study suggests

*Huanan Seafood Market in China is in the middle of the coronavirus outbreak
*Chinese officials said the virus may have originated in an animal at the market
*Different strains of viruses carry proteins that let them effect certain species
*When viral genes combine and mutate, new strains can gain access to previously unaffected species
*Peking University researchers analyzed RNA from hundreds of coronavirus strains and compared them to the new one
*It appears to be a combination of a virus that infects bats and a mystery strain
*A version that infects snakes was a close match, suggesting that serpents sold at the market acted as a 'reservoir' and passed the virus to humans


Researchers at Peking University believe that 2019-nCoV, the SARS-like coronavirus that's infected more than 500 people worldwide and killed 17, is made up of a combination of one that affects bats and another, totally unknown coronavirus.

They think genetic material from the two recombined, picked up a protein that lets viruses bind to certain host cells - including those of humans.

When they analyzed the genes of strains affecting various host animals, the team found that snakes were susceptible to the most similar version of the coronavirus, and likely provided a 'reservoir' for the viral strain to grow stronger and replicate.

Sold alongside a menagerie the included live koalas, rats and wolf pups at the Huanan Seafood Market in central Wuhan - now thought to be the outbreak's epicenter - snakes likely then served as the jumping-off point for the virus to begin infecting humans.

Although I'm yet to read about this virus having heard a lot about it from CNN and Aljazeera. I do hope the Chinese govt have a well laid down plan to tackle this, cause their population getting let down would be epidemic/catastrophic
Nothing way meat no fit do man pikin from Bird flu, Laser fever, Ebola just name it and men will never stop to dey eat meat. grin grin grin

This may potentially be the next worldwide epidemic since SARS!

When I means SARS, I don’t mean our own corrupt, conniving bastards police outfit that needs disbanding!

I'm not surprised. I doubt if there is anything they don't eat in China. I hope this new virus doesn't find a way into Africa cos we will surely suffer it more than them

The good thing is this time, the Chinese have learnt from the mistakes they made in handling SARS. Accepting and quickly cooperating with WHO has really helped make containment a success compared to 2002 when they denied till they could deny no more.
Although the Premier still defiantly made no reference to 2019-nCoV in his new year banquet remarks grin.


I have been patiently waiting for any mor0n who would come out and say " prophet ABC predicted the emergence of this virus", we know they would come up with that, they can spin any event to seem like a prophecy come true.

Snake, Tufwiaka, I can never eat it.
The sight of it is disgusting.
Besides, my religion warns me not to eat it.

China and odd food are like 5 and 6. It's good d deadly virus originated among them. While we were thinking that one country cloned it to deal with their rival
