And why the disease first appeared in China.
NOTE: As our expert Peter Li points out in the video, “The majority of the people in China do not eat wildlife animals. Those people who consume these wildlife animals are the rich and the powerful –a small minority.” This video explains how the people of China are themselves victims of the conditions that led to coronavirus. The virus is affecting many different countries and cultures, and there is never justification for xenophobia or racism.

As of early March 2020, a new coronavirus, called COVID-19, is in more than 70 countries and has killed more than 3,100 people, the vast majority in China. That's where the virus emerged back in December 2019. This isn't a new phenomenon for China; in 2003, the SARS virus also emerged there, and under similar circumstances, before spreading around the world and killing nearly 800.
Both SARS and COVID-19 are in the "coronavirus" family, and both appear to have emerged from animals in China's notorious wildlife markets. Experts had long predicted that these markets, known to be potential sources of disease, would enable another outbreak. The markets, and the wildlife trade that supports them, are the underlying problem of these pandemics; until China solves that problem, more are likely to emerge..

Note: A previous version of this video incorrectly colored Crimea as part of Russia on the map. While it has been occupied by Russian forces since 2014, it is still legally a territory of Ukraine. We've corrected the error..

There's a real and big difference between blaming "The Chinese" and "The People's Republic of China."

Hold China accountable for their actions.
Everyone should know about this by now.
Facts can not be racist.
They are the reason Wildlife Poaching and these terrible viruses came into existence.

Let’s not forget the hunting of elephants and rhinos, sharks and totoabas, to add to the stupidity of those beliefs in traditional Chinese “medicine”.

The Chineses government needs to be held accountable for shutting down the whole world's economy, the deaths of thousands of people, lying, bribing and killing people.

A good indicator of a civilized society is how well it’s people treat animals. A good society is one that encourages human empathy for other species, because that implies that we transcended nature’s Darwinistic progress of natural selection. The Chinese government clearly does not understand this, instead the repressive regime chase after GDP numbers to boast its own legitimacy.
