UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Chinese scientists came to the conclusion that the transmission of a new type of coronavirus COVID-2019 from person to person began back in November or early December last year, and the virus entered the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan from another place.
After that, it quickly spread both in the market itself and beyond.
The specialists analyzed the genomic data of 93 samples of a new type of coronavirus, collected in 12 countries on four continents, as well as the sources of infection and distribution routes. As a result, it was established that a certain “zero patient” could infect someone in the Huanan market.
Thus, their findings confirmed the theory that the market was not a source of coronavirus.
In addition, scientists claim that the disease spread along at least three routes.
It was also possible to establish that direct infections with Wuhan were mainly attributable to infections in the other nine provinces of China and eleven countries. At the same time, three possible sources of infection were identified in Guangdong Province, and two more in Chongqing and Taiwan.
At the same time, it was proven that patients from Australia, France, Japan and the United States had at least two sources of infection.
At the moment, in China, the number of cases is close to 78 thousand, 2360 have already died. According to experts, the PRC economy could lose $ 60 billion, while the total global market loss could rise to $ 500 billion.
