Researchers found three viruses that share a key feature with SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that caused COVID-19, in greater horseshoe bats living in limestone caves in Laos. Scientists are hopeful that they are now closer to finding the cause of the current pandemic.
Scientists take a peek inside the brains of Egyptian fruit bats to find the built-in navigation system that is present in most mammals. This tells them to focus on future locations than on present locations.
SARS-CoV-2, may have originated in bats, but how it gets transmitted to people has now been the subject of strong speculation and is currently being investigated by the World Health Organization (WHO).
