The origin of the Covid pandemic has kept researchers puzzled for a very long time. But an international team of experts found evidence suggesting that the Covid virus may have spread from infected raccoon dogs that were being illegally sold at a seafood market in China’s Wuhan, The New York Times reported.
The conclusion was drawn after researchers gathered genetic data form swabs that were taken from Hunan Seafood Wholesale Market and close arease in 2020, the report said. Swabs were taken from floors, walls, carts, and cages used to transport the animals, the report added.
The analysis found that the samples were infected by the virus which carried genetic material of animals including raccoon dogs. Even though this does not confirm that raccoon dogs were infected or if they transmitted the virus to humans, the research notes that the virus spread from wild animals.
A doctor violated the law by administering COVID-19 vaccines to children without consent, according to a new lawsuit. The mother of the children sued the doctor who administered the COVID-19 vaccines to children without consent.
