earned her the nickname not woman. in early january she identified a black bars that was 96 percent identical to the bar spanned in patients suffering from carded 19 it's the closest match found so far. since the start of the crisis the scientists has said listen publicly coronavirus expert john epstein has worked in the field with in china we found that bats and specifically a certain type of bad the horse that was found to carry multiple coronaviruses that were closely related in the family tree of coronaviruses that were sars like are closely related to sars genetically and that really reinforced and provided strong evidence for the idea that these bats are the natural reservoir of the original source of this group of viruses. to trace the origins of carbon on

tape we want to explore why bats a reservoir a virus. our investigation takes us to gabble on the west coast of africa. with 85 percent forest cover the country is home to reach biodiversity and the size of important scientific research . for. a gallon of overall just at the international center for medical research in france bill has studied several large bat colonies are broken some interest seal shows we caught a school new god only can will provide all the saudi cookies for $60.00 in original cavity to shape our result that believe me to be rich sable of. donated. i'm not proud i could see

2:43 am
from is to prevent outbreaks from happening again and a really good illustration of that is the original sars epidemic the virus was identified in people it was genetically characterized and a nearly identical virus was detected in civets which are weasel like animal that were sold very commonly across china or southern china in live animal markets and continue to be sold and even to this day. it's a possible sivits played the same intermediary role. but attention has focused on another animal. the pangolin. dealers. and we'll. see.
2:44 am
as. to. the penguin virus is an up to 92 percent match for the new corona virus. less than. however the pangolin virus is with small spikes that allow it twins. human cells more easily than the bad farmers or not don't go to them in sick all the bomb around. the city men to do a lot. of year is the. week keepers altered sickles proportionately so much for their kiss your a screw loose to men post about and also do it in yourself go do partial to come. true. for 20
2:45 am
years. scientists are convinced that the virus was passed from animals to humans but while the pangolin remains a suspect the intermediary animal or animals remains a mystery. the world health organization is desperate for more answers. paisa ben emerick leads the w. hite show tain tracing the viruses origins of limo was of u.s.c.'s you're clearly should be socially. we look macias your cutie she is i'm. at. the can really see said i knew it a man. defamed by his own when i knew my job mystique keno some like they could be supposed. to rule the populace you're an email you don't lee important to us a problem people if you don't if it's your own little. durable peterson on my

longest yard there are other. domestic animals have been involved in transmitting viruses before such as the heights one n one swine flu and the deadly heights 5 n one bird flu there's a possibility they could be linked to the new corona virus too but the w. hy job needs more information to find that out. all sick. in input on this is. it the police chief don't reveal it did also mushy. put me on the. don't. you know holder would he be doing even more. the need of all there will be they all need of us a moment when the boss of bosses you please don't recall he doesn't. know you i

would have seen how you do. the situation remains tense around the mockers on the way up i have a bite. by. one of the few clues made public by china is that among the $595.00 samples taken at the market $33.00 contain sod's. almost all of them from the wildlife trading section. tracing the origins of the pandemic is a to boost subject for beijing which is released little information on the topic. chinese officials have suggested the virus originated elsewhere while the us has previously claimed the virus was manufactured or leaked in a lab accident have you seen anything at this point that gives you a high degree of confidence that there would have instituted for raje was the
2:48 am
origin of these fires and what gives you a high degree of confidence that this originated from the institute for all i can tell you that i'm not allowed to tell you that. the accusations of manufacturing the virus and largely. the coronavirus expert at the wu han institute of viral a-g. but they don't convene scientists who've worked closely with or like bronco hall about a french infectious disease expert who's. sick of all good to see that he had these and then they. passed the scipio they cleaned the seal could be a hollow caution at the court and if you do see a fuss about it but if you know months except the musky atty there brunker believes there are other raisins driving the claims that the virus was leaked from a lab measure ponce. there's just associate the. book with the. ground. laughing i'm put accurate and i think still may
2:49 am
sound so bad as seen. the air space shuttle cannot see collishaw city some good of you to say involve tool and also. want an upper 5 percent of the illusion that power. the labyrinth are pretty good on they look loopy song down i'm on the cell and at you. despite the cause of the bars not yet being identified china banned the trade and consumption of wild animals. 'd 'd for the snake farmer back in lng shun this means he can no longer sell his reptiles like hundreds of wild animal farmers he doesn't know what to do. now good to. see. turns out to go i think there are under. the gun in things when they won the most on

2:51 am
bolli national. has. no say. in is on. and it transmitted. to several years now has fought to protect pangolin. however it's easy to find hunters by the roadside over what is that of the. show they did. with its extensive forest coverage protecting. is a daunting task what makes it even harder is

a rise in international while bob smuggling. the movie. would be an international call and he said this was not true then now the opposite problem with the school. system under. the new touchy cong. don't send them an os x. 30 you're going to next america for. a minute you need no point to procreate don't send in a guy. with the asian penguin population declining africa is now being plundered by traffickers it's on our potential partner. exact the model number of our government don't know for
2:53 am
a person time to deliver saunas function. how investigation takes us to hong kong most african penguins arrive here before being sent to the rest of china. we want to check if china's new ban on wildlife trying is being respected. wearing a hidden camera or our producer visit some traditional medicine shops. i am on that. comes off. well i will now we'll. go see my mongo who knows. me well kate i know. why in my. early months only i must.

2:55 am
if. there's any. way all. the bad has clearly failed to stop the buying and selling of endangered animals. is john scanlon has been the director of science he's the international body regulating the tritone wildlife. the penguin all commercial try to supposed to be prohibited yet the last 2 years we soar over 200 tons of scales in illegal trade the highest volume of a sane in illegal trade at that species he we're talking about transnational organized criminal gangs who are poaching in smuggling in an industrial scale we look at it happening with the ivory of the elephant the horn of the rhino the meat in the scales of the penguin the rosewood and many other species it's transnational
2:56 am
it's organized it's industrial if you look at all wildlife so trees fission wild animals. if you add them all together well bank estimates it's worth up to $200000000000.00 a year the massive scale of wildlife crime it's a huge consequences for people ecosystems and the wildlife itself. we've not yet invented it into the international criminal justice system which we can do by bringing it under the un convention against transnational organized crime as we do for human smuggling and other serious crimes the as humans continue to destroy wildlife habitats the risk of viruses being transmitted from animals increases there are. hundreds of thousands of potential new viruses out there that could be leashed on us and they could be with us so we have to learn the lessons from this
2:57 am
we have to change what we've done the status quo is not an option. as the. pandemic continues to ride around the world leaving devastation in its wake changing human behavior is vital to avoiding history repeating the crisis in an emergency we make all kinds of promises to change our way of doing things but then as soon as a crisis is over we forget and move on and so we've we've been guilty historically of not making significant changes and so when we get past this crisis and we will get past this crisis people will have direct memory of it direct experience with it and i think and i hope that will make the difference in terms of us finally committing as a global society but also in our countries committing to making the changes necessary to reduce the risk of pandemics like this happening again.
