I’ve not heard the Tories or Labour mention the animal welfare issues which underpin this. And I was fairly surprised to hear the shadow chancellor calling for a Brexit delay on Thursday, first because it’s obviously going to happen anyway and secondly because they are simply picking the ball up from December; if anything, it will play less well now.
Are they more scared of China or our own meat industries?
No one knows for sure, whether it was naturally derived or lab-created (By China, By US military, byBill Gates, who knows for sure) But it was present in the environment, in the wet market, and somehow went from animal to humans. Eating an infected animals doesnt help. And neither does having countless animals contained & suffering in the cruelest ways, becoming weak & sick, creating a scenerio for unfriendly microbes, to pass among many hosts, mutating to something new, and dangerous, to both animal/humans.The virus was made in a Wuhan lab.
Nothing to do with meat.
Sanctions Sanctions Sanctions and then a million more!The comment's in the video. Bill thinks we should put pressure on China to ban wild animals & slaughter from their markets to prevent future flu outbreaks.
China should ban it.
But they've got clout, so they can't be pressured. If they really don't want to, then they won't.
I go to an excellent Chinese vegan/vegetarian restaurant. They use little or no oil, organic produce, and not typical processed faux protein. Quality food. Nice people too.I've not had Chinese grub since this shit kicked off and reckon I'll steer clear from now on, their behaviour is bordering on prehistoric.
Where to start with this ^ nonsense...I agree! Sometimes we are afraid of saying things as they are. If other countries like Europe, Canada or USA were selling and eating exotic animals we would be forced to stop doing so. All countries should put pressure on China to stop wet markets and have a animal welfare law. I believe there's not difference between killing a cow or a bat thought. BOTH SUFFER!! In a ideal world, people wouldn't eat animals. View attachment 55726
They were never closed.The wet markets are a time bomb. And the time bomb just went off. If the wet markets start to open again - as it appears they are - the clock is ticking for this to happen again. Maybe worse next time. This virus has a relatively low morbidity and mortality rate - no consolation to those who have died. God help us if something comes along with a mortality rate that is much higher.
It really should be called the "meat-eater virus", really It should, But offend the carnivores?not goin to hapoen. Call the virus anything other than what has made innocent Chinese Americans run to the gun shop, in numbers.
The inhumane conditions & treatment of exploited animals, masses kept in close proximity, compromises their health, their immunity, & increases pathogen risks. This link between animal agriculture & diseases has long been studied by health experts, epidemiologists. H1N1 swine flu pandemic comes to mind.Why? Do vegans not contract COVID-19?
