Coronavirus Strains Found in Pets and Humans Share ‘Genetic Similarity’
In the open access journal PLOS ONE, a genetic and geographic analysis of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and related viruses may provide evidence of interspecies transmission worldwide between animals and animals. humans.
Previous research suggests that the coronavirus may have originated from genetic changes that have occurred among closely related viruses in horseshoe bats. Reports also suggest that the virus can spread from humans to domestic and wild animals (called flashback).
