US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Scientists are almost sure that coronavirus is a disease of natural origin. Mutation has already occurred directly in the body of bats. At the same time, they are not direct transmitters of the disease.
Canadian experts found that coronavirus was transmitted to humans using an intermediate carrier. Details of the scientific study were published in the article Molecular Biology and Evolution.
Experts determined that stray dogs could become an intermediate carrier. During the study, the DNAs of different strains of coronavirus were compared and with the one that was found in dogs, the scientists found the most matches.
As a result, it turned out that after transferring coronavirus from bats to stray dogs, he began to infect the intestines of animals. Perhaps the dogs became infected due to the fact that they ate bats.
It is worth noting that many people with coronavirus also have a variety of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. Further research will still be conducted to fully verify the previously obtained data.
