6 new coronaviruses discovered in bats

Scientists have discovered six entirely new coronaviruses lurking in bats in Myanmar.These viruses are in the same family as the SARS CoV 2 virus that is currently spreading across the globo but the researchers said the newbies are not closely related genetically to SARS CoV 2 or to the two other coronaviruses that cause severe infections in humans severe acute respiratory syndrome which caused the 2002-2003 pandemic and Middle East respiratory syndrome.

The researchers discovered the viruses while surveying bats in Myanmar as part of a government funded program called PREDICT to identify infectious diseases that have the potential to hop from animals to humans.And bats are prime suspects as the mammals are thought to host thousands of yet to be discovered coronaviruses.

SARS CoV 2 which causes the disease COVID-19 is also thought to have originated in bats before taking up residence in humans possibly taking a detour through some intermediary host first.Dekho eh video ch pata laga hai ke crona virus de 6 vade lasaan chamkidra ch pae ja rahe ne.Tuhau ki lagda eh video dekh ke apne apne vichae deo.
