China’s Wuhan seafood market likely cause of Covid-19 outbreak, as per a new studies published in journal ‘Science.’
Two peer-reviewed studies, published in the journal ‘Science’ say that Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan was most likely the epicenter for the coronavirus.
The first study shows that the earliest known cases were clustered around the Wuhan market.
The study is tilted “The Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan was the early epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic.''
The other peer-reviewed study published in the the journal Science titled “The molecular epidemiology of multiple zoonotic origins of SARS-CoV-2.”
The study is tilted “The Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan was the early epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the study, the first animal-to-human transmission probably happened around November 18, 2019, and it came from lineage B.
Despite taking different routes, both studies arrive at the evidence that Sars-Cov-2 was present in live mammals that were sold at the Huanan market in late 2019.
According to two studies, the virus was transmitted to people who were working or shopping there in two separate “spillover events”, where a human contracted the virus from an animal.
“I was quite convinced of the lab leak myself, until we dove into this very carefully and looked at it much closer,” Andersen was quoted as saying by CNN.
