In addition, this Pangolin is also using mammalian food and besides medicines are also made from this animal. The Chinese make their old traditional medicines using their body part. In fact, In China, there is a huge demand for the body scales of Pangolin.

In a journal of nature study, scientists say ‘caution is needed when catching and moving these animals. In the future, to prevent such virus-like coronavirus, the marketing of such wild animals should be strictly prohibited.

Professor Edward Holmes, a co-researcher at the University of Sydney, said that wildlife has a virus that can put people at risk of infection.
