Abstract Acinetobacter baumanni in white storks (Ciconia ciconia) is the main host of coronavirus strains and can convert coronavirus from each strain to another, the occurrence of outbreaks of SARS CoV-2 VUI 202012/01, in a year of the reappearance of white storks in England, the concentration of new variant strain of coronavirus in the south-east part of Britain, huge amount of visitors to hatched white storks and presence of Acinetobacter baumanni in nesting of this endangered migratory bird, power the linkage between bacteria, virus and bird. Furthermore, outbreaks of Middle East respiratory syndrome in Saudi Arabia after the death of a huge amount of white storks in the southern area of Jeddah city, certainly Wadi Al-Dawasir Province, and later outbreak of MERS in Saudi Arabia with more concentration in Wadi Al Dawasir. Also artificial nesting of white storks in The Honghe Nature Reserve in northeast China's Heilongjiang province and Acinetobacter baumanni outbreaks in China predisposing factors for SARS COV-1 and SARS COV-2. Overlapping coding sequencing is required to follow up the potential relation between coronavirus strains, Acinetobacter baumanni and the white storks.
