      An unprecedented shift in human population is one reason why more diseases originate in Asia and Africa. Rapid urbanization is happening throughout Asia and the Pacific regions, where 60% of the world already lives. According to the World Bank, almost 200 million people moved to urban areas in East Asia during the first decade of the 21st century. To put that into perspective, 200 million people could form the eighth most populous country in the world.

      Migration on that scale means forest land is destroyed to create residential areas. Wild animals, forced to move closer to cities and towns, inevitably encounter domestic animals and the human population. Wild animals often harbor viruses; bats, for instance, can carry hundreds of them. And viruses, jumping species to species, can ultimately infect people.

      Eventually, extreme urbanization becomes a vicious cycle: More people bring more deforestation, and human expansion and the loss of habitat ultimately kills off predators, including those that feed off rodents. With the predators gone – or at least with their numbers sharply diminished – the rodent population explodes. And as studies in Africa show, so does the risk of zoonotic disease.

      The situation is only likely to get worse. A major proportion of East Asia's population still lives in rural areas. Urbanization is expected to continue for decades.
      Both the new coronavirus and SARS outbreaks likely started in Chinese wet markets.

      Wet markets put people and live and dead animals — dogs, chickens, pigs, snakes, civets, and more — in constant close contact. That makes it easy for zoonotic diseases to jump from animals to humans.

      In the case of SARS and the new coronavirus disease, called COVID-19, bats were the original hosts. The bats then infected other animals, which transmitted the disease to humans.

      Wet markets like Huanan are common in China. They're called wet markets because vendors often slaughter animals in front of customers.

      "That means there's a lot of skinning of dead animals in front of shoppers and, as a result, aerosolizing of all sorts of things," Emily Landon, an infectious-disease specialist at University of Chicago Medicine, wrote in an article.

Ive been watching all the pandemic documentaries on youtube starting with the the black death in the 14th century all the way to the spanish flu in 1918 to Asiatic flu in 1956 to Aids in 1983 to Sars in 2003 to Ebola in 2016 to Corona Virus in 2019.

            90% of all influenza strains originate in China - some say even the spanish flu started in china and brought over to Europe
            It wasn't.

                    Multiple studies have documented that there were relatively few deaths from the flu in China compared to other regions of the world.[24][25][26] This has led to speculation that the 1918 flu pandemic originated in China.[27][25][28][29] The relatively mild flu season and lower rates of flu mortality in China in 1918 may be explained due to the fact that the Chinese population had already possessed acquired immunity to the flu virus.

                    • The one conspiracy theory I am buying is that there was very likely Coronavirus(covid-19) in the United States in 2019.

                      What we know:
                      1. China covered up the early Coronavirus extensively, especially in the early stages.
                      2. China originally said that it started in December, but they have found positive tests dating back to November now.
                      3. Hundreds of thousands of people traveled between the United States and China in December and November.

                          Seemingly everybody I know (myself included) was sick in December/January with a respiratory issue that didn’t test positive for anything we knew of prior to covid-19. There’s no way to know for sure obvious, but the symptoms seem pretty similar to what I had.

                            I got an RNSC(?) mailer a while ago on behalf of Senate Republicans. I have no idea why as I'm a registered Dem and they were treating me as a registered R. I guess someone fucked up somewhere. Anyway, the amount of "patriot" splattered across the whole thing was honestly completely fucking creepy.

                            It's like those crazy commercials in Grand Theft Auto. "PATRIOT, NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT AGAINST THESE LIBERALS AND THEIR SISSY PAPER STRAWS". Like a complete caricature.

                              If that were true, then we would have had a major outbreak far earlier.
