Pangolin Coronavirus: An endangered animal that looks like a scaly anteater — and is a delicacy in the Chinese culture — is suspected of infecting humans with the coronavirus, a report said Friday.
The outbreak of the deadly virus is believed to be tied to a market in Wuhan, China, where wild-animal meat is sold, including potentially pangolins, mammals with scales and a long snout and tail. New research shows that the strain of coronavirus found in local pangolins is 99% identical to the latest spreading among humans, according to the South China Agricultural University, which conducted the study, said the official Chinese news service Xinhua on Monday.
