The National Health Commission said Sunday that between January 1 and January 30, 2,016 people were found infected with the corona virus in the country. These do not include 435 infectious diseases returned from abroad. The commission said two people died in January. This is the first case of corona virus death in China after several months.
The WHO team reached the Wuhan weight market
Experts from the World Health Organization (WHO), which is investigating the origin of Kovid-19, visited the Hunan seafood market in Wuhan on Sunday. The corona virus is believed to have first spread from animal to human in late 2019 in Wuhan, which then took the form of an epidemic. Before the closure of this meat market, different types of cattle were traded there.
Bat or corona spreads with corona?
There is concern that the corona virus has entered humans from bats or pangolins. Peter DeSzak, American Eco Health Alliance zoologist and WHO team member, said he visited some very important sites today. First went to the wholesale market, then to the Hunan seafood market. It was very informative and important for the joint team to understand the epidemiology of Kovid, as it started to spread at the end of 2019.
Wuhan’s wet market was closed in December
CBS News Network quoted Deszak as saying the market was closed and cleaned up after the Corona virus surfaced in December 2019 in Wuhan. Nevertheless, this route is important because it can provide information on goods and people. The attack took place in a context of heightened security and the market is seen as a source of the virus.
