    What leads you to believe that most respiratory viruses or infections come out of China?

    That is only media propaganda. It is easy to blame an enemy for everything.

    I used to suppose that they probably had the same problem with the American Flu that we did with the Asian Flu

    but

    it turns out that isn't the case.

    l beIieve it may be due to cultural differences. China and eastern Asians in generaI cough and spit a Iot. lt's a cuIturaI thing. l'd imagine that's how it spreads. The majority of Asians aIso Iive in cities now so things spread quickly. Hygiene standards are aIso a bit different. When l Iived in Japan, there was no soap in any pubIic bathrooms and even in private bathrooms in peopIe's homes and things, some peopIe just didn't wash their hands with soap, incIuding restaurant workers. l wouId imagine the situation is even worse in China. ln Asia they cough without covering their mouths or anything even when other peopIe are right in front of them. Many wear an allergy/sick mask for their own sake, but when they have to cough they puII it down and cough openIy. People also commonIy cough on each other on purpose when someone does something they don't Iike or perceive as an insuIt.

    They eat a lot of wild animals. This new virus likely came from snake meat being sold at a meat stand. Another virus a few years ago came from eating bat meat.
