Origin of Coronavirus Being Narrowed Down

The deadly new coronavirus that started in China and is now spreading across the planet, has killed more than 200 and sickened nearly 10 thousand.

Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture chief veterinary officer Dr. Betty Althouse says researchers are closing in on bats as the origin of the new bug.

Althouse says there are a lot of different kinds of coronaviruses.

She says even the common cold is a form of coronavirus.
