Scientists say mice and monkeys will develop the next corona virus

Studies by Princeton University in New Jersey in the United States and the Federal University of the Amazon in Brazil have warned that rodents (rats) and ape species could spread the next corona virus.

National Disk: Studies by Princeton University in New Jersey in the United States and the Federal University of the Amazonas in Brazil have warned that rodents (rats) and ape species could spread the next corona virus. Molecular biologist Sean King and computer scientist Mona Singh conducted genetic analysis of different mammal species at Princeton University in New Jersey. Studies have been carried out on organisms that are particularly susceptible to viruses such as SARS. They found that in the past some types of mice were re-exposed to viruses such as SARS, making them more likely to develop a certain level of virus resistance.

Immunity developed with the infection of rats
Both wrote in their research paper that our study shows that rodents are repeatedly infected by a corona virus such as SARS. As a result of these infections, they may have developed intolerance or immunity to a corona virus such as SARS, he said. In their study, Dr. King and Professor Singh studied ACE2 receptors (receptors) that enter viruses such as SARS into mammalian cells. The team found that there was little evidence of the presence of ACE2 receptors in organisms such as humans and other mammals that were previously not known to be infected with SARS. However, genetic analysis of the two showed rapid evolution of ACE2 among rodents. This suggests that these rodent species are more susceptible to repeated exposure to corona viruses such as SARS during their evolution and, as a result, have developed immunity to these types of infections.

Bacteria and viruses are deadly in the jungles of Brazil
On the other hand, researchers at the Amazonas Federal University in Manaus, Brazil, have expressed fears that this time the disease could be spread by bacteria and viruses found in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. Its carriers may be rats and monkeys. University biologist Marcelo Cordo and his team recently found the decomposed carcasses of three bite tamarind monkeys in the refrigerator. Someone turned off the electricity in this air conditioner. The corpses of the monkeys rotted inside. Marcelo and his team took samples from the monkeys. To help him here, another biologist Alessandra Nava came forward. They discovered parasitic worms, viruses and other infectious agents from monkey specimens. The way humans invade the forest, viruses, bacteria and germs in the organisms transmit the infection to humans, Alessandra said.
