Symptoms of COVID-19
What is the origin of COVID-19?
A few of the early cases had visited Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market thus the infection is thought to have a zoonotic beginning. The infection that caused the episode is known as SARS‐CoV‐2, a newfound infection firmly identified with bat coronaviruses, pangolin coronaviruses, and SARS-CoV.
The logical agreement is that COVID-19 has a characteristic source. The likely bat-to-human contamination may have been among individuals preparing bat cadavers and guano in the creation of customary Chinese medications.
The most punctual known individual with side effects was later found to have become sick on 1 December 2019, and that individual didn't have noticeable associations with the later wet market bunch. Of the early bunch of cases detailed that month, 66% were found to have a connection with the market.
