"This is a scientific and health issue of great importance and necessity. As you know, there are three important components of an infectious disease, one is the source of the infection, the second is the transmission route, and the third is who is infected and who can contract the virus -- the so-called susceptible person. These three links constitute the three important scientific links and elements for us to understand infectious diseases. The origin-tracing is related to the source of infection and the transmission route. Therefore, if the traceability problem is solved, we can answer where the pathogen came from, which is of great value to understanding the occurrence of this infectious disease, and has great reference significance to the prevention and control of other infectious diseases in the future."
