right now it should be about ideas they don't care about their work is all they care about is making money china is not going to be left out of the office calling for the bloated defense budget to be high the bottom line on us politics and policies and their effect on the world on al-jazeera. kovi 9 tain has taken a heavy toll worldwide causing millions of deaths and a global economic recession but more than a year later its origins remain shrouded in mystery don't prove us it did also machine. scientists are trying to trace the viruses route from the animal kingdom to humans they're just. sick leave you loose. and partially you can also do it in yourself do.
so ok be put on it. and as the pandemic surges there urgent calls to change human behavior we have to learn the lessons from this we have to change what we've done the status quo is not an option. follows the rice to uncover the roots of the coded 19 pandemic. and when best a geisha in begins in blue han china a bustling economic hub with a population of 11000000. in december 29 tain a mysterious outbreak was reported in the city. many of the cases will link to a seafood markers we. it was soon closed by the all far she's. totally
if you're willing to listen and she knew i was all a. source of function was as an era of armada was a member of the family was on the. 3 weeks lyta the entire city went into lockdown the outbreak was eventually traced to a new virus known as sod's kovi to a corona virus that causes the disease known as coded 98. the closure of the markers is a delicate subject in ruhani this fishmonger won't tell us his name and he's one of the few people willing to talk to those yet no. one is out here something. here.
there's no way in a sense on account of all of that's a lot of other. year on how. c c n n charge and i often. say. face on the old going on thank you what i heard. jane on your one lot tell us that our society i'm out what bothers. them not only a handful of the a news. services on me or going on. as a mother while you are the parent can is i me by bullies on. all of those in the male. teaching ways and i think people as you know about my children as. his parents weren't the only regulars at the market to catch the disease the
chinese study revealed that of the 1st patients hospitalized 2 thirds had been to the markets a busy center selling seafood and animals. always as well as old. in these markets you can find domestic animals as well as dozens of exotic species. captured in the wild all raised on farms. in summat such as snakes can harbor viruses. in lean shang in. southern china a snake opened his doors to us. just to show if you actually know. there's
a similar $1000000000.00 industry. evolutionary biologists like alexandra huston on say animal overcrowding in phumzile markets can lead to problems. it is only one cause of you will. not place the. law. presumes on he did you prove it unaccounted. for snakes will quickly ruled out as a potential carrier of the new corona virus but 3 quarters of recent infectious diseases came from animals including rabies. malaria and sod's. one species is particularly effective in transmission barson. facts. of the wu han institute of viral a-g. . has spent many years identifying viruses in bats. her job has
earned her the nickname not woman. in early january she identified a bat bars that was 96 percent identical to the bar spanning 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 or the original source of this group of viruses. to trace the origins of car did not
take we want to explore why bats a reservoir of viruses. our investigation takes us to gabble on the west coast of africa. with 85 percent forest cover the country is home to reach biodiversity in the size of important scientific research 5 gallon of overall just at the international center for medical research in france bill has studied several large bat colonies are broken some into a social so we do what's best new god only can will provide all the saudi quote decency to those individuals have a duty to shape our resolve the people need of the resale of. donated. i'm not proud i could see
you do wish us in the city of equal you reject that idea off shore the leave us so it does a power issue a story if we should sleep more possum it was him so it's only that he would he will remind us when you are. going to showers we are i see. evolve e.v.t. impish it is and. only by that it was not the seeing. a virus typically has to pass into made before infecting humans. in the case of kobe 19 scientists are still looking for these into made it hard. to the simple answer to why it's important understand where viruses ultimately come
from this 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 to this day. it's possible sivits played the same intermediary role. but attention has focused on another animal. the pangolin. dealers. will. see.
as. if they know. the penguin virus is an up to 92 percent match for the new coronavirus. less than. however the pangolin virus is with spikes that allow it twins. human cells more easily than the bad farmers. don't go to them in sick all the bomb around. the city men to do a lot. of you lose the. week. dave you lose too many posts about and also do it in yourself to do partial to come. true. 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 a w hijo tain tracing the viruses origins of little more which of u.s.c.'s you should be socially. we look macias your cutie she is i'm. at. the can really see said tiny male is that a man. defeat by his own when i do my job mystique you know some back they could be supposed. to rule. you don't leave impact on the supreme people if you don't if you only do. durable peace you're only my longest
you know they are all. 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. if the police chief don't reveal it to dawson mushy. to put me on he. don't. i you know order would he be doing even more. the need to evolve the d.v.d. on neither of us a moment when the boss of bosses you. know you are with us and how you do.
the situation remains tense around the mockers on the way up i have a right. by. one of the few clues made public by china is that among the 585 samples taken at the market 33 contain some code 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 hand into the cheetah for raje was the
origin of these fires and what gives you i'd agree a 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 but a french infectious disease expert who's. sick of all good to see that he had these and then they. passed the scipio could even the holocaust but he could the court and i do see a fuss about it but a few 9 months except the musky atty. brunker believes there are other raisins driving the claims that the virus was leaked from a lab measure bonce gets. this just associate. book with the. ground. laughing i'm put accurate and i think still may
sound so bad. the air space him cannot see collishaw city somebody do reduce involved tool and all. this month on average 5 percent of the illusion that come pump our. elaborate program on the look loopy song down i'm on the ceiling at us. 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 you go i think there are under.
the gun in being a woman. was it done for you with our one idea of us sitting there they were out the window. as the pandemic worsened gabble on also took action banning the sale and consumption of that and penguins. in the capital labor of ill and they can dimba patrols the markets to ensure the message is received it's going to. do something like. talk. more about the. shooter tara said back a little far sooner to park where you will be here where i live you should have a secular bus. as the head of wildlife conservation for gab on a may has a difficult task to preserve the world's most poached animal.
i mean should i leave. bali national. has. no say. in is on. and it transmitted. to several years now has food to protect pangolin. however it's easy to find hunters by the road signs over what is up of the. show they did. with its extensive forest coverage protecting gabba 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 that 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
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 our producer visit some traditional medicine shops. i am on. comes off. well i will now we'll. go see my mom go who knows. me well kate i know. why in my. early months only i must.
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 we have a sane in illegal trade at that species here we're talking about transnational organized criminal gangs who are poaching and 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
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 on us and they could be worse so we have to learn the lessons from this we have to
change what we've done the status quo is not an option. as the covert 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.
