It added that further research should be done on the pangolin in the forests of China and Southeast Asia to identify their role in the spread of the Corona virus and its transmission to humans in the future.
The pangolins that eat ants or snails, are the most smuggled animals in the world and suffer from nausea. Its skulls are widely sought after in Asia and are used in traditional Chinese medicine, while some consider Pangolin's meat a sophisticated diet.
