Coronavirus Came From Meteorite, Scientist Says
The 2019 novel coronavirus has been one of the major health concerns in different countries all around the world after affecting thousands of people worldwide. The disease has already killed hundreds of people.
The deadly virus is currently spreading in various nations across the planet and causing fear and panic to the public. Many countries are already implementing precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the virus.
Recently, a scientist identified as Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe of the Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology claims that the nCoV allegedly came from the meteorite, which hit China last autumn.
Wickramasinghe said that the fragment of the comet spread hundreds of trillions of viral particles throughout the Earth’s atmosphere. The viral particles allegedly sparked a global pandemic.
The scientists have long held the bacteria, viruses, and strands of DNA carried by comets and meteorites. The professor also believes panspermia from the comets is a common route of virus and bacteria on earth.
“The sudden outbreak of a new coronavirus is very likely to have a space connection, the strong localisation of the virus within China is the most remarkable aspect of the disease,” Chandra said.
