According to new research, animals sold at the Wuhan market are most likely what ignited the fire. Pandemic Covid-19

According to new research, animals sold at the Wuhan market are most likely what ignited the fire. Pandemic Covid-19 The World Health Organization advised in June that experts continue to investigate all probable causes of the Covid-19 epidemic, including a lab leak. Two recent research utilize very different methodologies but reach the same conclusion: The coronavirus most likely originated in the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, China. The research were initially released as preprints online in February, but have since completed peer review and were published in the journal Science on Tuesday. In one, a geographical and environmental investigation was conducted by scientists from all around the world using mapping software and social media posts. They assert that the virus was definitely present in live animals sold at the market in late 2019 despite the fact that the precise circumstances are yet unknown.

However, they did discover a dozen timbers that they believe originated from the lost Spanish galleon from the 17th century that served as the basis for Steven Spielberg’s 1985 movie “The Goonies,” which starred the fictitious pirate and his treasure-filled ship. This finding has renewed interest in finding the wreck of the Spanish galleon Santo Cristo de Burgos, which vanished in the Pacific Ocean in 1693. As artefacts said to have been on board the ship have been washing ashore for centuries, historians speculate that it may have sunk off the coast of what is now Oregon. Uncertainty surrounds what what transpired to the Santo Cristo de Burgos in 1693. During a voyage from Manila to Acapulco, Mexico, which was a popular route for Spanish traders at the time, the ship just vanished. The ship was rumored to be transporting Chinese ceramics, rare silks, and beeswax for making candles. People have been discovering signs of a shipwreck along the Oregon coast for...
