Chinese bats likely source of SARS virus, researchers report - Fogarty International Center @ NIH

Chinese bats likely source of SARS virus, researchers report - Fogarty International Center @ NIH | MERS-CoV | Scoop.it

Scientists say they've produced "the clearest evidence yet" the SARS virus originated in Chinese horseshoe bats and that direct bat-to-human transmission is "plausible." The 2002 severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) pandemic was one of the most significant public health events in recent history and researchers have been studying the virus to better understand how it is transmitted to prepare for future outbreaks.
