According to scientists, the real source of SARS virus is Chinese Rufous Horseshoe Bat whose scientific name is Rhinolophus sinicus. SARS virus carried by this species of bat showed 95% similarity to the virus in humans. Scientists will confirm that SARS virus is transmitted directly from bats to humans. Scientists in Chinese Academy of Science said that SARS virus in bats’ bodies infected human cells in the same way. It means the coronavirus can be transmitted directly from bats to humans. The scientists hope that this finding can help the government develop better prevention of infectious diseases such as SARS, they also pointed out that we should fully protect bats’ habitats, so that bats won’t enter the densely populated urban areas to search for food. Rhinolophus sinicus’ name comes from similar chrysanthemums apophysis on its nose, they live mainly in China, India, Nepal and Vietnam.
