Xinhua News Agency reported on February 2 that a research team published a paper in the British journal Nature Communications on the 9th that they had discovered a new coronavirus-related coronavirus in bats in a wildlife sanctuary in eastern Thailand. This research has not been able to pinpoint the origin and intermediate host of the new coronavirus.

Researchers from Duke-National University of Singapore School of Medicine and other institutions have carried out surveillance investigations of the coronavirus.In an artificial cave in a wildlife sanctuary in eastern Thailand, they discovered a coronavirus in five great-horned chrysanthemum bats.The researchers named this coronavirus RacCS5.

Analysis shows that the genome similarity between this virus and the new coronavirus is 91.5%, and it is also closely related to the bat coronavirus RmYN02 previously discovered in China.In addition, the researchers also detected the new coronavirus neutralizing antibodies in bats in this area of ​​Thailand and a pangolin at a wildlife checkpoint in the south of the country.

The researchers pointed out that this provides evidence for the spread of new coronavirus-related coronaviruses in Southeast Asia, but the sample size and sampling area of ​​this study are very limited.They believe that there are a large number of new coronavirus-related coronaviruses in bats in many Asian countries and regions. Although the latest discovery cannot pinpoint the origin of the new coronavirus, it still helps to expand the scope of detection of new coronavirus related viruses.
