According to Dr Ram Shukla, specialist, infectious diseases at Al Zahra Hospital in Sharjah, Coronovirus are animal viruses very common in vertebrates (such as camels) but known to be carried by bats (natural reservoir of the virus).

Some scientists may debate the link between modern farming methods and the mutation of animal viruses into ones that can infect humans but common sense alone predicts that holding tens of thousands of animals in small confined spaces and feeding them an unwholesome diet beefed up with antibiotics and other drugs is hardly a recipe for good health.
