Role of Pangolins in the Emergence of SARS-CoV-2 and Other Viruses in Humans
The animal origin of SARS-CoV-2 remains enigmatic, but the answer to this question is critical to prevent future emergence of zoonotic pathogens such as coronaviruses with pandemic potential as with COVID-19. While bats are natural reservoirs for coronaviruses, our previous study (Lam et al. Nature 2020) showed that Malayan pangolins smuggled into China are the only non-bat animals found to carry coronaviruses related to SARS-CoV-2 prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, implicating their potential role . . .
