When people started hearing about the coronavirus, everyone thought that the “wet market” in Wuhan is responsible for the spread of this virus. If you ever visited or watched any of the videos about the wet market, you will come to know the environment there. The dead and live animals included the birds, fish, rats, snakes and other animal to sell. If someone wanted to keep the hygiene level there, still it wasn’t possible because of the dead and live animals.
It’s not confirmed that from which animal the disease spread, but many sources termed the “bats” to be the cause of this outbreak. There wasn’t a single bat for sale in the wet market, but it’s assumed that they might have transferred the virus to chickens and other such animals for sale in that market. Other infections which are spread because of bats are Ebola, rabies and HIV. So, bats are the host of many viruses which contain the coronavirus as well.
