“Swine flu appeared in China, and bird flu spread from China to the world, and now the corona virus has appeared, and this disease has appeared in China.

Chinese society is a mentally corrupt society. We have to save these kids.

China has become a threat to humanity.

TIME: “However, Adam Kamradt-Scott, associate professor specializing in global health security at the University of Sydney, says this way of thinking is often flawed. While scientists first thought that Ebola started with the consumption of bat meat in a village of south-eastern Guinea, they now believe that the two-year-old girl known as Child Zero was likely infected via bat droppings that contaminated an object she put in her mouth. MERS was also primarily spread from live camels to humans through association, rather than the eating of camel meat.”
