Coronavirus, China puts a ban on meat from wild animals
the BEIJING - China has approved the draft of the law "broad," which includes the call immediate in the consumption of meat of wild animals, together with the close on the illegal trade and protection of life and health of the people. This was decided today, the standing Committee of the 13th national people's Congress, the highest legislative assembly of the asian giant. The scheme of the provision, has 8 articles focused on the "known problem" of consumption of meat of wild animals (considered to be one of the possible causes of coronavirus), on which there is a total ban and the grip on the illegal trade, reported the official media.

This prohibition binds to the data that come from scientific research. In the studies with which it is attempted to reconstruct the origins of the infection in the man, in fact, the scientists put on the bench of the accused the bat as a possible animal source of the virus and the pangolino, the latter considered as the possible intermediate host from which the virus would jump species coming to human beings.

But before to get to the pangolino, this small mammal similar to an anteater, at - risk of extinction and a victim of trafficking illegal immigrants for his chips, considered a panacea by the oriental medicine, and its meat was delicious - in January, the index had been focused on two species of snakes, and these are also considered delicacies, and probably sold in the markets of live animals of Wuhan, one of the reliable sources of the beginning of the epidemic by coronavirus 2019-nCoV.

To accuse the pangolino was the research conducted in China by Shen Yongyi and Xiao Lihua, both of South China Agricultural University (Scau) in Guangzhou. The researchers report that they have compared the genetic sequences of coronavirus taken from the pangolino, and by the man, noting that they would be the same for the 99%. The scientific community has called for caution towards the findings of this study. So far it was known that the pangolini they were guests of the coronavirus, as are the bats, and it was also observed that the coronavirus of the pangolini has receptors very similar to those seen in coronavirus 2019-nCoV: that is to say, the two viruses use a key molecular very similar to be able to enter the cells of the respiratory tract of man.
