The study, published in the journal Nature, said: “Bats may have different types of coronaviruses.
Since the outbreak of the new novel Coronavirus, scientists have been trying to find out from which organism the disease came into humans, and now it seems that Hong Kong scientists have found the answer. According to research so far new novel COVID-19 spread by bats.
Research from the University of Hong Kong has revealed that the coronavirus may have been spread by a species of bat found in Asia.
The university’s microbiology department developed a group of cells that resembled the cells found in the intestines of a bat called the Chinese Horse Show.
This type of bat is found in many countries, including China, Nepal, Vietnam, and India.
The researchers were able to infect the structure of these cells with a new novel coronavirus, SARS COV-2.
Earlier, research reports found that this type of bat also carries the virus that caused the Sars and is similar to the new novel Coronavirus.
The researchers told the South China Morning Post that the combined results showed that the Chinese horse show bats may be the real hosts of the Sars COV-2.
The results of the study were published in the international journal Nature Medicine.
The researchers said more research was needed on the original bats to confirm the origin of the virus.
During this research, they also succeeded in making the intestinal structure of bats in the laboratory.
The study also found that the new corona virus targets patients’ lungs as well as their intestines.
For this purpose, the researchers analyzed the waste of a 68-year-old patient undergoing treatment at a Hong Kong hospital with fever, sore throat, cough, and cholera.
Not only was the corona virus confirmed in the patient, but scientists also isolated the virus from the waste, indicating an intestinal infection.
Earlier last week, a Chinese study concluded that the virus was transmitted from bats to pangolins and then to humans.
The study was carried out by scientists from the South China Agricultural University and the Guangdong Laboratory for Lingnan Modern Agriculture. The coronavirus is found in the sequence of RTG13.
The study, published in the journal Nature, said: “Bats may have different types of coronaviruses, but the second host is still unclear.
According to the study, when a coronavirus was isolated from a Malaysian pangolin, its E, M, N, and S genes were compared to the new novel coronavirus, which was found to be 100%, 98.6%, 97.8%, and 90.7%, respectively.
Research has shown that the S-protein that affects cells, especially in the pangolin coronavirus, bears a striking resemblance to the new novel coronavirus, with only one insignificant amino acid difference.
Scientists identified the pangolin virus after analyzing it in 17 to 25 Malaysian pangolins, and after isolating it, the results were reported.
Genetic analysis in late January found that the genetic sequence of the virus that spreads to humans is 96 percent similar to that of the corona virus found in bats.
But it was not immediately clear from which animal the virus spread to humans, as there are many organisms that can transmit the virus to others, and almost all types of coronaviruses are transmitted to humans by wildlife.
Earlier, in a study in February, Chinese scientists suspected that endangered pangolins could be a missing link in the spread of the virus between bats and humans.
Similarly, a study in March found that a number of pangolins contained coronaviruses that are currently linked to the epidemic of COVID-19 in the world.
The discovery makes pangolins the only mammals after bats to become infected with the novel corona virus.
The study did not confirm or deny the role of pangolins in the spread of the epidemic, but the results suggest that the animal may have played a role in the spread of the new coronavirus.
According to the World Health Organization, the bat is an organism that may contain the novel coronavirus, but it was not transmitted directly from the bird to humans but was played by another animal.
Pangolin is eaten in China and a few other countries, while its crust-like fur is also used in traditional medicine.
It is illegal to eat pangolin meat in China, but it is still found there. Most pangolins were also sold at animal markets, but after January 26, all such markets were closed to government orders.
In a March study, the genetic sequences of different types of coronaviruses discovered in penguins were 88.5 to 92.4 percent similar to those of the new novel coronavirus.
During the study, scientists analyzed the tissue heads of 18 pangolins that were recovered during anti-trafficking operations in 2017 and 2018.
The researchers found coronaviruses in samples of 5 out of 18 pangolins.
He later repeated the process with more pangolin samples and discovered coronaviruses in them, after which he compared the sequences of the genomes of these viruses with the new novel coronavirus.
The researchers said that the genetic similarity was not enough to prove that the pangolins were the temporary hosts that transmitted the Sars Cov-2 from bats to humans, but did not rule out the possibility.
He said penguins should be included in the potential hosts of new coronaviruses in the future.
Experts say that while we welcome the findings of this study, more research is needed, but we need to look at other living things that may have played a role in transmitting this epidemic to humans.
It is not yet known how the virus was transmitted from a wild animal, possibly a bat, to another animal, and then to humans.
But the study found such a virus in millions of pangolins, which raises the question of where the virus came from.
Because this breed of a pangolin is found in other countries of Southeast Asia instead of China.
On the other hand, environmentalists say it is time for the international community to put pressure on governments to end the illegal trade in the animal.
Information on a possible temporary host for the new coronavirus will help prevent and control the new coronavirus.
