More than six months have passed since the coronavirus pandemic began, and scientists still do not know where this terrible disease came from. Some believe the SARS-CoV-2 was created artificially. Others believe that it has an animal origin. But so far, it’s all come together as a new virus.
And now there’s the version that SARS-CoV-2 came to us eight years ago. The Sun refers to what American scientists say. Virologist Jonathan Latham and biologist Allison Wilson found notes of a doctor from Yunnan province, dated 2012.
The doctor treated six miners who fell ill after clearing the mine of bat excrement. They all had COVID-19 symptoms. Three of them could not be saved.
