Scientists Say Bats Could Be Linked To Coronavirus With This Bat Soup (video) by sagefuad: 1:56pm On Jan 23, 2020
Scientists in China have suggested the coronavirus could have originated from fruit bats, while videos of people tucking into bat soup have been shared online. The deadly virus has killed at least 17 people - with China confirming 571 cases for far.
Experts have said in the Chinese Science Bulletin that fruit bats could be hosting the virus, as was the case for SARS.
A statement published in the South China Morning Post: "The Wuhan coronavirus' natural host could be bats... but between bats and humans there may be an unknown intermediate."

The report comes as videos have gone viral showing people tucking into bat soup - considered a delicacy in parts of China.
Scientists are still unclear on how the virus has spread, but the report found it has a 'strong binding affinity' to a human protein called ACE2. Scientists say this binding protein has a 'high resemblance to that of SARS'.
SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) led to an epidemic in China in 2002-03 and is believed to be related to coronavirus.
