Scientists are still making efforts to decipher all information about Corona Virus What surprised the world by its expansion for months, until today it affects more than 80 countries.
In the new scientific endeavors, Chinese researchers discovered two different types of the new virus strain, pointing out that one of them was “deadly” and highly hostile, which was discovered or appeared in the early days of the outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
According to a preliminary study published a few days ago, scientists at the College of Life Sciences at Peking University and the Pasteur Institute in Shanghai, according to CNBC, reported that there is a more aggressive type of corona that was prevalent in the early stages of the disease outbreak, but this The lethal species declined later in January
The researchers said their findings indicated that the development of new forms of the virus was “probably caused by mutations and natural selection along with recombination”.
More research is urgently needed
They also added that this preliminary study and their findings confirm the urgent need for further research and studies that combine genetic and epidemiological data and graph records of clinical symptoms of patients with corona.
In addition, they warned that the virus could spread more widely worldwide.
It is noteworthy that the death toll of Corona has now exceeded 3300, while the virus has spread to cover about 84 countries.
It also exceeded the number of people affected by 96414 people, according to a toll prepared by the French Press Agency, according to official sources, until 11:00 GMT Thursday.
This emerging virus, which first appeared in Wuhan, China, last December, led to general mobilization at the global level, and the adoption of extraordinary measures.
