Sars Mers Ebola and other killer virus outbreaks all originated via animals, contamination occurring across species
I read of a scientist going skitz about farmed chickens, reckons we are all at risk of a virus that would kill 50% of humanity, collapsing civilization as we know it. ( he is vegan mind, so maybe biased )
The Indonesian authorities did well to contain another lethal poultry outbreak ( by killing all of Indonesia's chickens if I recall correctly.)
That one killed 1 in 4 contaminated humans but was contained early. What if they failed to contain it ?
Next outbreak is when not if...so how many will it kill ? And if we have to do another lockdown the world goes bankrupt.
Should not have locked down the country for cov 19 in my own opinion, should have saved that for when we get hit by a more lethal outbreak. When not if.
