I saw something in FB about it starting in the filthy fly ridden bloody and gruesome (to us Americans) meat markets in China. There are meat markets with no regulations whatsoever where sanitation and chilling of the meat is concerned. Butchered animals hang for people to inspect and buy. The floor in these places (there was pics) was covered in blood and piles of fly ridden offal here and there. China isn't a 3rd world nation in my opinion and this shouldn't be going on. The Gov there said this is traditional. So because it's been going on for generations, they look the other way putting all humanity at risk.
You probably know several nasty viruses came from China over the years. They really need to do something about these disease breeding meat markets there. Regulated slaughterhouses can be built. Look how fast they built all those hospitals for this new virus. Sanitary slaughter facilities are not beyond what they can do.
Which reminds me as a pork eater that the Trump Admin removed most of the inspectors from pork (and maybe others; beef, poultry) slaughterhouses leaving the foxes to guard the hen-houses. This will increase profits for the owners and put Americans at risk. Profit over people. BTW, since their profits increased the price of pork has gone up. Spare ribs were recently $1.79 a lb. Yesterday they were up to $2.59 lb.
I hope other nations get on China for these endless viruses that are starting there. China will not do anything about this global danger they're causing until all Nations agree and force them to act. People should not have to die for other people's "traditions."
