Earthwatch: How the Wildlife Trade Caused the Coronavirus

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Wuhan is where it started but does anyone seriously think that after the virus has spread throughout the world Hubei is the only Chinese province affected?
The Chinese Gov't has been lying through its teeth about this virus from start to now.

If this doesn't make countries and politicians rethink their relationship with Communist China then nothing will.

I can't stand Donald Trump but I do think he's right in calling it the "China Virus".

Nice one Ted,but when this lot is over, will we all be down to Curry's or wherever buying a new Chinese made telly or white goods( fridges, washing machines etc) , I bet most of us will be.
Anything you pick up in the house or on the car invariably has been made in China and already they are gearing up to flood the market again when us consumers want to start spending.
Now is the time to decide to try and avoid buying anything made in China. It' s going to be difficult and maybe expensive but there is a choice out there.

Disturbing video!

Really good video, its also worth looking at BBC Horizon https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000h3nm

Shows that Bats are an ideal breeder of hardcore virus that can then jump to other species (in wet markets) and then cause havoc, this is not the first time China has created a new human virus in this way.
