A new report from Daily Mail states that the coronavirus from China did indeed come from bats, according to scientists who found the virus to be 96% identical to the one found in bats.
So far the virus has killed 362 people, most of which also had underlying conditions and their bodies were not able to fight it off. Scientists have been working to determine which animal the virus came from. However, after they used samples from several patients suffering from pneumonia due to the virus, they have found it's extremely similar to the coronavirus in bats.
In fact, the DNA is a 79.5% match to the SARS coronavirus.
Bats are considered the probable source of the coronavirus outbreak spreading from China. It turns out that they may have an immune system that lets them coexist with many disease-causing viruses. https://t.co/27xIhD3ySy

Daily Mail reports:
Global cases have risen above 17,450, higher than the total recorded cases of the SARS virus that killed some 800 people in 2002 and 2003.
Although scientists stress the animal source of the recent outbreak in China is yet to be officially declared, experts have confirmed a wholesale animal market in Wuhan city is to blame.
A menagerie of live animals including koalas, rats and wolf pups were available at the Huanan Seafood Market in central Wuhan - the outbreak's epicentre.
While most research has pointed towards bats, research at Peking University implicated snakes as the most likely 'reservoir' of the rapidly spreading virus.
The Huanan market was a hotspot with locals, who could choose to buy their meat 'warm' meaning it had been slaughtered just moment prior.

Virology reader Dr Michael Skinner said, 'The discovery definitely places the origin of nCoV in bats in China. We still do not know whether another species served as an intermediate host to amplify the virus, and possibly even to bring it to the market, nor what species that host might have been."
He continued, "But the high level of sequence similarity between nCoV and TG13 is not really compatible with some of the more exotic hosts that were considered earlier in the epidemic."
I'm sure more information about the virus will come with time.
