A new coronovirus causing Kovid-19 has been discovered in Britain with a bat.
The virus, named RhGB01, was found by a 22-year-old ecology student dripping for one of his projects, The Times of London.
In its current form, there is no risk of infection from viruses to humans. However, there are concerns that Saras-COV-2 may combine with RhGB01 to create a new virus that can infect humans if the bat contracts Kovid-19.
+ “I’m afraid that people will suddenly be afraid of bats and start chasing them …” +
Andrew Cunningham of the Zoological Society of London, co-author of the study, said, “Spicules – the part of the virus that binds to host cells to infect them – are incompatible with the ability to infect human cells.”
“With the current global mass vaccination campaign against this virus, it is necessary to stop the transmission of Sars-CoV-2 to bats”, a person can read in a study that will be published in periodic scientific reports.
Diana Bell, a former Anglia University professor involved in the study, said the study highlighted the risks for people exposed to bats.
“Anyone who comes in contact with bats or their droppings, such as lifeguards or spelologists, should wear them [de l’équipement de protection] To reduce the chance of a mutation, ”she said.
She insists that global regulations should be enforced for everyone handling bats and other wildlife.
For her part, the exploring student fears that such a finding would lead to results on the species.
“I am afraid that people will suddenly be afraid of bats and start hunting them. This is the last thing I want and it will be in vain, ”says Ivana Murphy.
“Like all wild animals, if they are not disturbed, they pose no danger,” she says. (VAT News)
