The Origin of COVID-19: The Root Cause of the Virus

The Origin of COVID-19: The Root Cause of the Virus

As leaders and decision-makers try to contain Covid-19, they continue to ignore the origin of the pandemic. Not just this pandemic, but so many other pandemics in the past s well. To put it simply, if we continue to treat billions of animals as we do now, more pandemics will follow.

Covid-19 may have jumped to humans from a hideous wet market in China, but the intensive confinement of animals is certainly not exclusive to China.

Currently, billions of animals around the world are kept in filthy cages, where they can hardly see the light of day. Not to mention exercising, breathing fresh air, or doing anything remotely healthy.

Given that we already know that some viruses are able to infect different species and jump from animals to humans, is it any wonder that so many pandemics originated in the animals we force to live in poor hygiene and extreme confinement?
