Can this be how the Corona Virus was spread?

Don’t buy China’s story: The corona virus may have leaked from a lab

"... little-known fact: Some Chinese researchers are in the habit of selling their laboratory animals to street vendors after they have finished experimenting on them.

You heard me right.

Instead of properly disposing of infected animals by cremation, as the law requires, they sell them on the side to make a little extra cash. Or, in some cases, a lot of extra cash. One Beijing researcher, now in jail, made a million dollars selling his monkeys and rats on the live animal market, where they eventually wound up in someone’s stomach."

I've seen videos of them eating bats over there. Is food that scarce?:mellow:

In Fiji and some other island countries, it is considered a delicacy. I tasted it once - hate to say the old saw, but it tastes like chicken...:laugh: Bony chicken...

It's a beautiful country with really nice people. I made several good friends there. I spent the better part of two, almost three years there. Got really tired of drinking kava and peeing all night. Had to drink Bounty Rum to kill the taste. I think that is when I developed my nasty rum habit?

But we digress from that nasty virus. I can believe that article that Jack D listed... really scary stuff. Anything to make some cash and anything to eat something "exotic," even if it kills you? Ugghhh...:ohmy:

Years ago used to do a lot of caving in Samar, was very common for locals to eat bats. They would stings fishing lines at entrance with numerous hooks.
