Origination of Coronavirus Strain

It all started in an animal market of Wuhan city, Hubei province of China. This is the place where fresh meat is sold in narrow lanes with stalls extending outside. It is also called “Wet Market”. This is a very dangerous situation where humans are in such a close vicinity with freshly cut animals. This is how Coronavirus gets transmitted from animals to humans and this time the suspect is Snake.

The situation in China is so worse that Chinese government had to now seal Wuhan & nearby cities to control the spread of Coronavirus. No planes, trains or buses are going in and out of the city.

It’s so sad that because of Coronavirus sudden outbreak, Chinese government has decided to pause all the activities around their biggest yearly festival “Chinese Lunar New Year”. This will help them to constrain the spread at least to a certain level.
