The genesis of the ongoing corona virus outbreak has now been officially linked to a meat market in Wuhan China which sold a variety of live animals for slaughter. As The Daily Mail reports:
The deadly Chinese coronavirus outbreak began at a wholesale animal market in Wuhan city, experts have confirmed.
Scientists from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention said tests proved humans caught it from animals at the Huanan Seafood Wholesales Market.
It is not clear which animal was carrying the pneumonia-like illness but the market was home to stalls trading dozens of different species, including rats and wolf cubs.
Last week experts suggested the disease may have originated in snakes, which are known carriers of coronaviruses.
The death toll of the corona virus now stands at over 100 with over 6000 more infected.
