What is up with the Chunks and breeding these new viruses every few years? Is there some secret bunker where they CRISPR them up from political dissidents and Muslims?

it’s a combination of things:
1. their insistence on ‘wet markets’ where pretty much anything gets caged next to other stuff, slaughtered and eaten.
2. people living in close contact with pigs and waterfowl
3. High density /poor husbandry of animals
4. High density population
5. Migratory routes for waterfowl.

a lot of things like flu swirl about in pigs and waterfowl. When they cross over into humans you have the potential to create novel strains we have no immunity to. Wet markets/eating all sorts of random shit from the wild = exposure to all sorts of pathogens. very high population density of humans is also a bad idea.

Note to Chinese government: To eat crow is merely a Western expression. Please do not add Bird Flu to the list.
crows mainly carry stuff like west Nile. Ducks and waterfowl and chickens are your bird reservoir for flu and coronoviruses. Pigs as well harbour all sorts of stuff. Actually MOST animals do, and occasionally it jumps to humans. Keeping hundreds of thousands of pigs in awful conditions is a reviled for disaster, as is high density duck/chicken rearing in areas where there are a lot of migratory birds.

the likelihood is that this will circulate, kill a few hundred, and then fizzle out. But make no mistake, one of these emergent viruses (probably flu, but maybe a respiratory something like a novel coronavirus) will emerge, spread and rival or exceed the 1917 flu pandemic. It’s just how nature works.

Well I was just making a joke really, but I'm happy to have actually learned something.

What's the betting that before Mao's cultural revolution Chinese farmers had actually worked out better and safer traditional approaches to farming over generations and they lost a lot of knowledge through forced "modernisation"? I have no idea mind, I'm just guessing based on the way the Communist take over wiped out so much Chinese traditional knowledge and practice.

The positive would be the funny memes and photos to be seen from Chinanet.

Here's how patients are isolated, lol. It's like a coffin. Better than the Mao era where the patient is dragged out and shot.

Officials in Wuhan are being slammed for downplaying the virus.

Apparently a cure is already finished, so the virus can be contained. It's not gonna be another SARS, but it definitely has something to do with people eating stuff they shouldn't fucking eat.

oh I know, it’s just you know how it is. “haha good play on words ... then the little internal voice that says ‘factually incorrect though so just correct that.’ (Not a trace of pedantry or autism here I swear...)

very probable. At the least they’d have had lower densities and be producing and slaughtering locally. I’m a carnivore, and fond of progress so this isn’t any kind of vegan / must go back to nature rant, but intensive factory farming isn’t a great idea for any animal. It can only work with very, very stringent controls and even then you’re working against a set of pressures that are hard to evade. High densities encourage physical and mental illness, parasite and pathogen transmission, and just general badness (for humans as well as other creatures.) The best farming practices are probably those which are informed by traditions and which use the best of modern and traditional. Low density, as sustainable as possible etc.
The next respiratory mega plague may well arise in china.

Probably related to population density. Wouldn't be surprised if the re-education camps have horrid conditions that allow stuff to spread and mutate. With how polluted China is, that might be a contributor.
I wouldn't even be surprised if it was intentional. I can see the politburo being arrogant enough to believe they can use deadly viruses to thin out the Uighur population and other minorities they don't like and just figuring it won't mutate in a direction they aren't prepared to handle.

Modern farming is pretty bad for all involved. From a plant point of view most farmers now intensively grow mono-cultures. From an animal point of view high-density lots are popular and profitable. This has made animals highly susceptible to various diseases. Pigs (for example) are close enough to humans that the things that infect them can easily make the jump to people (I had such high hopes for the last round of swine flu).

Back to the subject at hand, China has a big problem with antibiotic resistance in part (India too) because 1. they give out antibiotics like fucking candy, but 2. because of their use in industrial farming.

When the end comes, and it will come, it will come from the East and be the result of shit.

I wouldn't even be surprised if it was intentional. I can see the politburo being arrogant enough to believe they can use deadly viruses to thin out the Uighur population and other minorities they don't like and just figuring it won't mutate in a direction they aren't prepared to handle.

Well there are way more Han than anything else. Then Han can afford to lose 200 million. Not so for the Tibetans and the Uighur.

Edit to include a more recent post and not wanting to shit up the thread (this isn't a street in India).

Chinks will literally eat anything so its no surprise weird, deadly viruses come from there.
Was long time ago but I saw a webm video on youknowwhere of a Chinese woman scooping shit soup out of the sewers, then boiled it a bit then bottled it and sold it. I remember in that webm video they were bottled the rest is left to imagination.
Doesn't surprise me a bit.

Not sure where you got this from.

The "Great Leap Forward" and "Three Years of Natural Disasters" were a direct result of Mao's insane land redistribution practices. It's not really the "Great Cultural Revolution" which was more about overthrowing traditionalism and culture. If anything, it's land redistribution that is to blame here, but I don't believe that to be the case either in this specific incident.

Mao basically had land owned by farmers forcibly seized, it's where the phrase "打土豪分田地 hit the land owners distribute their farmland" came from. People who are nothing but farmers that may or may not employ other farmers got their land stolen. The land was said to be given to "plebs", but we all know Mao's own cronies got the biggest chunks.

Of course, giving land to people who don't know how to farm would bring forth a famine, but China blames it on natural disasters lmfao. This is exactly what will happen to South Africa after they purge the White farmers, following Rhodesia's Zimbabwe's footsteps. Getting off-topic.

I don't think this has much to do with China's farming practices. I've been to the farms (not the one filled with autistic faggots), they aren't any different to western mass farming ones. I'd lay the blame of slaughtering practices and the absolutely false notion of "animals taste better when they are killed fresh and suffer before being cooked", this is absolutely scientifically untrue. Oh and some like to eat exotic things, possums, peacocks, cats, dogs, even fucking bats and mice which are riddled with diseases.

4 dead all from Wu Han, left to right labels: Province, diagnosed, unsure? Unsure meaning they don't know if it's actually the virus or just something else.

Funny meme:

I spent thousands of years domesticating [these animals] that you refuse to eat! You fucking eat "the wildly" instead!
The wildly referring to stuff that's not domesticated, such as eating mice and fucking possums. Pretty popular in several provinces such as Guangzhou.

In Wu Han, zombies are starting eating humans.
In Guang Dong, humans are starting to eat zombies.
This one did make me laugh.

It's basically "I look like the virus, wanna get it?". God these people and their hentai.

Just announced, it showed up in Washington state just like I expected. This is what happens when you import Chinese to work for tech companies, they bring disease and steal your secrets.

I think I was there too...

They called it "street oil" or something to that effect. It was the cooking oil they used at market stalls on the sides of streets and she was making it from raw sewage. Worse still, she was making enough money to buy a house off it.

They can't.

Seattle thinks nothing bad can happen to them as long as they stay woke enough and suck enough Chinese dick.

Plus, it wouldn't surprise me if some of those woke-elite secretly hope a plague would kill off all the wrong-thinkers in the rest of the state.

Its called "gutter oil" and its made from everything including raw sewage, road kill, carrion, basically anything has has some fat or oil that can be rendered down and separated, it used to be REALLY big like almost all street vendors in some parts of china were using it. supposedly the CCP started cracking down on after videos and documentaries started showing up, however I'd trust a junkie word over the CCP so take it as you will.

For a given value of "good news", the text is edited from the original. There has not actually been commissioned porn of the coronavirus yet (at least in this one case). Give it time before someone decides to spearhead another Ebola-chan internet sensation.

Gutter oil was a thing during the 2000s - early 2012. The CCP controlled media actually did several independent investigations to unearth it. It's a program called "每週質量報告 [weekly quality reporting]" which was one of my favourites during my stay. They investigate shady practices such as food, plastic goods, sweatshops. It's like Gordon Ramsay's Hotel Hell/Restaurant Nightmares/24 hours-to-hell-and-back programs minus the obvious drama.


Among gutter oil, they also unearthed the famous milkpowder scandal. Less famous ones are “蘇丹紅一號” which is a poisonous colouring that was used to make food look better, using disgusting recycled plastics to make drinking bottles for infants while showing the factory owner feed her child with an imported American drinking bottle (wtf is wrong with these souless slants?)... etc.

So yeah, in this case the CCP is pretty trustworthy. Chinese fake news is different to ours. Our fake news will put out deliberate lies and fabricate stuff in order to reach a preconceived conclusion, Chinese fake news focus on their reign over the media and will just not report stuff against their interests. Lying by omission isn't technically lying, but it's still fake news.

With this virus fiasco, China's state news have hourly updates tracking everything. They report on verified cases and suspected cases not only locally but outside of China. I have to give it to them, they are doing a very good job and this is what journalism should be about. Back when SARS exploded, no one saw such prompt updates. The actual death toll of Sichuan earthquakes is still not known, there isn't a list of victims which ultimately stem from the nation's shoddy construction practices. It's always good when the CCP improves, now stop lying about Mao and talk about the Tiananmen Square case.

I'm rather cynical of course. The virus could have been prevented if the Party had laws prohibiting the consumption of stuff that humans should just not eat, and regulate how markets (known as 菜市場) function. Food markets in China are open air with slaughter going on everywhere. Fish, prawns, shellfish, chickens, ducks etc, are all in close proximity to vegetables, cooked meat, raw meat etc, this enables cross contamination and it's extremely unsanitary. Such practices are illegal in the west. Gordon Ramsay will agree with me. The party would rather act when something happens, which is stupid.

Just look at this:
1579689324444.png

This is one of the many "wildness restaurants" in Wuhan's totally "seafood market". Are you kidding me, weird pests and stuff that no one should eat is kept with seafood? The consensus now is that the virus started exactly in this so called seafood market, in the very restaurants that offer fucked up food. Let's not forget that SARS exploded because some idiot ate civets that were bit by bats carrying the virus, which these idiots also fucking ate.

I'm not going to translate that entire table, here's a list of things that stand out. There's stuff such as boar meat, kangaroo meat, deer, crocodile, and wild goats that are safe to consume, there's also the fucked up stuff:
- peacocks, wild chicken, turtledove... exotic avian. You know it's bad when you don't fucking know what 80% of those birds on the list are!
- emu kidneys (wtf?)
- snails, woodworms, bamboo worms
- Bamboo rats, skunk, nutria, sloth, squirrel, civet (are you kidding me?)
- Porcupine, hedgehog (why?)
- Land tortoise, pangolin
- Koala (what???)
When google translate can't find the name, I'm sure it shouldn't be consumed!
It's Capreolus pygargus.
1579690445823.png


China learned nothing from SARS, and now they are bringing the virus to innocent people both within and outside of the country. It's said that bamboo rats carry the disease. I actually asked someone that likes this kind of food, his response was "ordinary meat is just boring, I'm adventurous". If anyone wants to eat fucked up stuff, eat it and perhaps die in a fucking cave. That's never the case though, a virus is bred because of these unsavoury fucks and spread to people that don't have such a disgusting lifestyle.

China imposed a ban on tourism to North Korea. Can you imagine the virus spreading in North Korea? It's anudah shoah!

Here's some retarded shit:
1579690757430.png

Some Taiwanese ignored the diagnosis because she doesn't trust Mainland China's doctors, left for Taiwan. Now she's being quarantined. Say what you want about China, self-diagnosis off wikepedia is retarded. There's people who just don't trust doctors because they've read an article or two online.

1579691023399.png

Imagine being these two places:
1579691056894.png

It's at 440 now, 6 deaths (all deaths are in Wuhan).

1579691119736.png

"Wuhan bat sashimi"
WHAT DRIVES A PERSON TO EAT RAW BATS?????
At least cook the fucking thing you savage.
Animals such as rats, bats, and birds carry a lot of weird diseases. Case in point, this article talks about hedgehogs that are offered as food in that Wuhan restaurant.

I'm speechless. What a fucked up country.

Probably a good idea to have a thread on this given how often it's discussed and will continue to be discussed even after November.
