Yes, a shocking 1 million Coronavirus cases worldwide! This is what the world is looking at!
What was the genesis of this killer COVID-19?
In December 2019, in Wuhan, a city located in Eastern China, having a population of more than 11 million people, a mysterious illness was reported.
It was then reported by China, that the cause of this mysterious illness, was Coronavirus.
China then reported that many of the people who were infected by the Novel Coronavirus in Wuhan, had worked in the Huanan ‘Seafood’ Wholesale Market, which was located in Wuhan.
Interesting to note is the name here –
Huanan ‘Seafood’ Wholesale Market!
When you read the word Seafood,
You would expect to get all kinds of fish and the like here!
But this is totally misleading!
These are the things that were being sold in the so called Huanan ‘Seafood’ Wholesale Market:
- Rabbit organs
- Wolf puppies
- Marmots (ground squirrels)
- Giant salamanders
- Spotted deer
So, did you think that perhaps these animals were being sold as ‘pets’ in Huanan ‘Seafood’ Wholesale Market??
Huanan ‘Seafood’ Wholesale Market is what is known as a ‘Wet Market’!
A ‘Wet Market’ is a place that sells fresh meat and fish – for the purposes of eating – not to keep as pets!
So, all the above animals, (How many of them are on the endangered species list??!!), were being sold for the purpose of eating!
In fact, many shops in the Huanan ‘Seafood’ Wholesale Market, slaughtered these animals, right in front of people.
The Huanan ‘Seafood’ Wholesale Market was then shut down by the Chinese, on January 1, 2020.
On January 7, 2020, China reported that it had identified a new virus, which was later named by WHO as – COVID-19. China said that this belonged to the Coronavirus family, which was inclusive of SARS and the common cold.
On January 11, 2020, China said that the first person had died from the killer Coronavirus, and this was a 61-year-old man who had bought goods from the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market. China said that this man had been admitted to the hospital on January 9, 2020, but his symptoms did not improve after he was given treatment.
On January 13, 2020, the first Coronavirus case was reported outside of China, this was in Thailand and it was a woman who had arrived from Wuhan.
On January 16, 2020, a confirmed Novel Coronavirus case was reported in Japan, by the health ministry of Japan and this was of a man who had also visited Wuhan.
On January 17, 2020, a second Coronavirus death was reported in Wuhan.
In the days that ensued, authorities in the United States, Italy, UK, Germany, Spain, Iran, South Korea, France – and SOON – the rest of the world, started to report cases of the killer Coronavirus!
On January 23, 2020, China placed Wuhan, under quarantine!
But obviously, this action came way too late from China!
Coronavirus was spawned in Wuhan, in December 2019,
Wuhan was quarantined by China, almost a month later!
Quite obviously, the action of putting Wuhan in quarantine,
Came way too late by China!
Today, worldwide, COVID-19, has taken the lives of over 50,000 people and over a million people have been infected.
How many more people will die because of the killer Coronavirus?
