Snakes possible source of Wuhan coronavirus

Post by AEthelred » January 22nd, 2020, 7:06 pm

Snakes might be the original source of the Wuhan coronavirus,the Krait and the Chinese Cobra may be the original source of the newly discovered coronavirus.The many banded Krait also known as the Chinese Krait is a highly venomous species of snake found in southeast Asia.
They originaly thought it came from bats but when researchers performed more detailed bioinformatics analysis of the sequence of the 2019 nCov,it suggests that this coronavirus might come from snakes.

Snakes often hunt for bats and may have picked up virus from bats and reports indicate that snakes were sold in local seafood markets and the outbreak is believed to have first contacted people at seafood markets,believed likely from snakes sold there.

Humans coming into full bodied contact with this have no one to blame but themselves, for the pageantry of misery incubated by these markets.

Eating snakes, drinking their blood, slurping up various organs for ridiculous purposes.
