Shitou was where Shi Zhengli, lead scientist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology WIV , working with samples of bat feces in and , isolated a novel virus that was very similar to SARS, which had been responsible for a pandemic a decade earlier.
Seven years later, her fears appear vindicated. It also originated in a bat colony just 90 miles from Shitou Cave. But how did this virus travel from a bat colony to the city of Wuhan, where the coronavirus outbreak was first documented?

Some even say life might have arisen here more than once. So, the very first Asian person, or the first Aboriginal Australian person, the first European, or first Native American, all descend from these African people who spread out from Africa around 70, years ago.
Our species first began in Africa and the ancestors of all of us alive, no matter where we live today, are Africans. Hello, curious kids! Ask an adult to send your question to us. They can:.
