Abstract:   (1959 Views)
The covid-19 virus is a severe and contagious viral infection that appeared in Wuhan, China in late December 2019 and spread rapidly around the world. Despite numerous studies on the new virus, its origins remain unclear. Determining the exact source of this virus can be helpful in finding solutions to control this virus and similar viruses in the future.
