SARS-CoV-2 ‘origin’ studies out in Science

| Press Releases, Publications | No Comments
The COVID-19-causing coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, likely first spread to humans from animals in two separate transmission events in a Wuhan market in late November 2019, according to a pair of analyses by international teams co-led by Scripps Research scientists. The analyses, published July 26, 2022 in Science and released in earlier, pre-print versions in February, were based mainly on the locations of cases…
