China might be close to detecting the source of the novel coronavirus.

On Monday, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported that a large quantity of wild animals on sale at a seafood market in the city of Wuhan tested positive for the virus.

Thirty-three of the 585 samples collected from the Wuhan’s Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market were found to contain the nucleic acid of the novel coronavirus, according to the National Institute for Viral Disease Control and Prevention under the China CDC.

Earlier reports quoted experts as saying that the geographical distribution of the cases indicated a close relationship between the epidemic and the seafood market.

Thirty-one of the 33 positive samples were collected from the western zone of the market, where booths of wildlife trading concentrated.
