The coronavirus epidemic has already claimed the lives of 106 people in China. According to experts, bats could be the cause of this epidemic. Still misunderstood, the coronavirus continues to add to the toll of its victims. Originally from China, it caused the contamination of 4,000 people according to the Washingtonpost. In US 5 cases have been affected according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Recently, experts have revealed that bats soup may be responsible for the spread of coronavirus virus. The information was relayed by many media including the British newspaper The Sun.

Coronavirus outbreak could be linked to bat soup say scientists

The coronavirus is said to have appeared in December in a marketplace in the city of Wuhan, China. Chinese authorities have since quarantined the epicenter city to limit the spread of the epidemic. Despite the precautions taken, the coronavirus has reached several countries in Asia, but also the United States, France and Australia. The concern is at its height and the researchers are trying to detect the origin of this epidemic.

Wuhan Virus Speculated to Originate from Bat Soup

Bat Soup May Be The Cause of The Wuhan Virus

Many videos and images of individuals consuming bat soup have alerted the media and cast doubt on the origin of the epidemic. The suspicion comes from a study by researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences who allegedly associated the mammal with the coronavirus. Relayed by the Daily Star, the Mirror and the China Daily, their results suggest a possible link, but the Parisian calls for caution, this information would be spread without direct proof established.

The Sun newspaper also quotes that the South China Morning Post which evokes this link without incriminating the soup in question, “The Wuhan coronavirus’ natural host could be bats … but between bats and humans there may be an unknown intermediate”. It is therefore difficult to say at present whether the soup is indeed responsible for this contamination.

Wuhan coronavirus likely started in a Chinese wet market

Several animals are suspected

According to biology experts what we do know is that it is practically obvious that the virus has come from 'an animal source'. Several studies have been carried out to define the origin of the transmission of the virus to humans. Among the hypotheses retained, that of the bat appears at the top of the list. "There are many on the Chinese markets," said experts. We should also remember that the bat was the cause of two epidemics, SARS and Middle East respiratory syndrome. However, "these infections have been transmitted to humans by civets and dromedaries," say experts from the Shanghai Pasteur Institute.

In addition, other Chinese scientists have suggested that the snake could be the intermediate host. The virus’s DNA may have changed to infect the snake. But some researchers also believe that "there is no known coronavirus in snakes, which are cold-blooded creatures".

It seems that scientific interventions have not produced conclusive results so far. But the investigation continues. "Confirmation of the presence of an animal reservoir is essential for the intervention and prevention of the epidemic," said two American scientists.
Coronavirus symptoms 
The coronavirus, named 2019-nCov, is a virus that affects the respiratory tract. People infected with this virus may notice some symptoms similar to those of the flu. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), flu-like syndrome, fever, headache and joint and muscle pain can be seen at the start of the disease. Then, the virus can cause coughing, sputum, shortness of breath, and even pneumonia.

If a person has these symptoms and has recently stayed in China, it is strongly advised, you should tell your healthcare provider about any recent travel or contact with animals.
