Based upon genomic sequence analysis  and other coronaviruses (including SARS-CoV and MERS-Cov), SARS-CoV-2 originates from bats, but further studies are still needed to confirm whether it is or not transmitted directly or through an intermediate host. Other animals, such as ferrets and pangolins, are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 and may be potential intermediate hosts, but there may be several intermediate hosts .
