Will various countries who are experiencing the pandemic, be looking at older health incidents to see if a warning was missed, before virus?

Jumped from an animal to a human ?

    We already knew about viruses crossing from animals to humans because new strains of influenza are doing that all the time.  I expect people to continue to live in close proximity to pigs and ducks without taking any particular precautions.  It's traditional.

    What "warning"? We have known for years and years that this was a very real possibility. We've had plenty of warnings, and chose to do nothing about them. Scientists have been telling the world that this was coming for a long time, just like they have been with climate change and other major world problems. But the people who make the decisions have chosen to ignore them and stick with business as usual. And now people are dying by the thousands. And we'll most likely do exactly nothing about it and go right back to more business as usual.
