According to health officials, the theory that coronavirus was transferred from animal to human beings has been debunked and proven to be fake and untrue. It was a fake theory which was formed by the Chinese to prove that they are innocent regarding the origin of coronavirus. This theory was debunked because if it was true, animals would have been passing it to each other and lots of dead animals would have been seen on the streets all over the world.
As countries continue to take measures to combat the outbreak, most countries have closed their schools. Saudi Arabia has barred pilgrims from visiting Mecca and Medina. Most giant airlines have stopped flying to China. Mongolia has blocked its borders with China. Iran has canceled Friday Prayers in major cities.
People who have been infected but recovered from COVID-19 in China and the U.K have been urged to donate blood plasma, in the hope that their antibodies can be used to treat sick patients.
