Pangolins are ’most likely’ intermediate coronavirus host

As per researchers from the South China Agricultural University, Pangolins are possible hosts of coronavirus. Having analyzed over 1,000 samples, scientists have found that the genome sequence of the virus in pangolins was 99% identical to that from infected people. This means pangolins are the most likely intermediate host of coronavirus. Pangolins are considered a delicacy in China.
