Coronavirus Covid-19 could be in a Chinese mine in 2012, not in Wuhan.
This opinion was expressed by the virologist Jonathan Latham and molecular biologist Allison Wilson, after reading a dissertation of the doctor, Li Xu, who treated the miners in 1000 miles from wet market in Wuhan, reports The Sun.
Six miners fell ill with a virus similar to pneumonia, on mine Mozan in Yunnan province in southwest China eight years ago. The miners spent two weeks on the removal of feces of bats, with the result that three of them died from the virus. Among the symptoms patients doctor called a high temperature, dry cough, pain in the limbs and, in some cases, headaches.
Scientists said that the evidence induced in the thesis, made them revise all that, in their opinion, they knew about the pandemic. They came to believe that the virus that killed more than 760,000 people worldwide, developed in miners and has been adapted for people.
Doctor Li Xu took tissue samples of infected miners in the laboratory of Wuhan, where, in the opinion of many, there was a leak of the virus.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, scientists in the US have discovered a new atypical symptom coronavirus. According to them, constant hiccups can be a symptom of the disease.
