    Some researchers may have discovered the origins of the virus, named 2019-nCoV by the World Health Organization (WHO). The study notes that the first person diagnosed with 2019-nCoV, the coronavirus visited a market in Wuhan snakes were available for purchase–at least that is the theory. The study showed a new virus was likely formed due to the mixing of coronavirus strain normally found in bats with another strain of an “unknown origin.” The new virus was produced, displaying a mix, or “recombination,” of the proteins that bind to host cell receptors. The ability to combine within the binding protein is what likely created the virus’ cross-species transmission from snakes to humans.
