The entire world is shattered after the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic. Some of the countries are struggling to bounce back and the world is in a huge financial crisis. It all started in China and is spread across all the countries. The scientists in China found a new virus that is similar to coronavirus. The scientists discovered this in a bat species and the initial reports say that this virus is 94 percent identical to coronavirus. The Chinese virologists named it as RpYNo6. A team of researchers from Shandong First Medical University and Shandong Academy of Medical Sciences in Tainan found this.

They have collected 411 bat samples from 23 species in the country between 2019 and 2020 in Yunnan province. After thorough research, the scientists found out four new viruses and all of them are similar to coronavirus. Among them, the RpYNo6 virus is the closest to coronavirus because of the spike protein. The World Health Organization (WHO) warned of the possibility of another pandemic and they named it 'Disease X'. Several global experts say that the world will face one more pandemic very soon. With the arrival of RpYNo6, the world is completely worried after experts warned of one more pandemic.

119 million cases of coronavirus are reported in the world and 2.65 million people died of this disaster. The vaccination programs are going on in all the countries and the situations are slowly getting back to control. 345 million doses of coronavirus vaccinations are given for the people worldwide out of 78 million people are completely vaccinated
