A trafficked pangolin in Kuala Lumpur: The animal is a suspect in the outbreak
Pangolins smuggled into China have been confirmed to contain viruses closely related to the one sweeping the world.

Sale of the animals in wildlife markets should be strictly prohibited to minimise the risk of future outbreaks, says an international team.

Pangolins are the most-commonly illegally trafficked mammal, used both as food and in traditional medicine.

Bats are thought to be the original viral source, with another species playing a role in human transmission.

In a new research paper, published in the journal Nature, researchers say their genetic data suggests “handling these animals requires considerable caution, and that their sale in wet markets should be strictly prohibited.”

Further surveillance on pangolins in the wild in China and Southeast Asia is needed to understand their role in the emergence of coronaviruses and the risk of future transmission to humans, they add.

The ant-devouring scaly mammal, said to be the most widely trafficked mammal in the world, is threatened with extinction. The animal’s scales are in high demand in Asia for use in traditional Chinese medicine, while pangolin meat is considered a delicacy by some.

Ahijo said that the development had saved the hospital a lot of fund used to be spent on imported sanitisers, particularly with the outbreak of Lassa fever and Coronavirus.

“Following the outbreak of Lassa fever and Coronavirus, we realised that we have to buy a lot of water sanitisers in the hospital and the cost is very much to us.

“So, I called the pharmacists and say why not we produce our own. I looked at the Act that established the hospital which gave us the backing of the law to do so.

“We have produced for our local consumption for now. We are thinking maybe we can extend it to the society and other institutions,” Ahijo said.

The chief medical director assured that with time the hospital would take steps to patent the product as prescribed by law.
