The first cause is the use of bats and other wild animals in food. Chinese cuisine has many dishes that are made using wild animals as meat. Chinese cuisine has dishes that have meat of dogs, bats, scorpions, octopuses, sharks, pigs etc. Coronavirus commonly attacks wild animals, and there is a high possibility that the virus evolved, mutated and modified itself to be transmitted from animals to humans and then cause disease in them.
The second cause of the coronavirus outbreak is a potential leak from a science research facility in Wuhan that was working on coronavirus. The leak led to the exposure of animals and humans inside and near the facility to the coronavirus that started showing symptoms.
