Coronavirus in animals: Highly likely bats DID start the coronavirus pandemic

“However, knowing the lifecycles of bats, pangolins, and primarily humans, as well as their inter-relations, we can say with great certainty of a zoonotic nature in SARS-CoV-2.”

The coronavirus family of pathogens is zoonotic, meaning they infect both humans and animals alike.

There are, however, only seven strains of coronavirus that are known to attack humans.

SARS-CoV-2 is the seventh and most recently discovered strain.

The other six are alpha coronaviruses 229E and NL63, and the beta coronaviruses OC43, HKU1, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV.
