Exact location Covid-19 pandemic started ‘pinpointed by scientists after bombshell study’

The exact place where the Covid-19 pandemic started has been found, according to scientists.

In early 2020, coronavirus shook the world as entire countries locked down, people across the world were forced to stay in their homes, and millions died.

Many of the world’s economies have not recovered and it is expected Covid has changed the way we live our lives for good, from working from home to the way we treat illness.“

The virus’ origins have been hotly contested with many theories floating around – from claims it came from a lab leak to the debunked theory that 5G caused the virus.

But now two scientific papers have backed the same theory that the virus was first transferred to humans in a wet market in Wuhan, the city in China where the disease was first detected.

Both papers, published by scientific magazine Science, point the finger at Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, claiming it was here that the virus was transmitted from animals to humans.

It is speculated the first Covid cases developed there in late November and early December 2019, with scientists having mapped early cases and finding they were clustered around the market.

Researchers suggest that caged animals who were sold at the market were infected with the virus, causing vendors and customers alike to come down with the disease and spread it to other humans.
