Scientists in China working on finding a cure for the new and deadly Coronavirus have said they have already made a major discovery in their fight.
They say that, as well as taking the regular precautions against a worldwide pandemic, people should refrain from eating bat soup.
Having pigs and ducks in the house should also be avoided.
The virus, which started in the Chinese city of Wuhan, has been given the classification 2019-nCoV, and has, so far, infected more than 3,000 people worldwide, proving fatal in 81 cases.
These, say the Chinese authorities, were mostly down to the consumption of bat soup. Complete abstinence from all forms of bat soup, bat salads, roasted bat, and eating both raw and 'live' bat, will, it's hoped, bring a swift end to the threat of a worldwide pandemic, which might wipe out the whole of the human race from the planet.
Other Chinese delicacies have been deemed safe for the moment, although tests are currently being undertaken on Thousand-Year-Old Eggs.
