MOSCOW, may 27 — RIA Novosti. Australian scientists have named a strange feature of SARS-CoV-2, to distinguish it from other viruses, writes Daily Mail.

Experts conducted a study which examined the stability of a number of organisms to infection. They recalled that the coronavirus is associated with ACE2 receptor using protein and pointed, the stronger it can join, the less the probability of its disappearance from the body.

In particular, even the strain of the disease, common among bats, were not nearly so well adapted to its host. Also, experts are unable to find the one where the coronavirus would have received such distribution as humans.

“This is a new virus that has never been in the human body, possesses extremely high levels of binding to human receptors, which is very surprising,” said University Professor Nikolai Petrovsky Flinders.

He noted that viruses, as a rule, better adapted at infecting new species over time, but COVID-19 “fully optimized from day one without the need to change.”
