The new Coronavirus-a virus that comes from the Wahun province in China, has been tied to a fish and meat market in the town center.
This market sells a variety of different meats and goods. But one of the most popular items on the menu is Bat Soup.
Bat soup is not an ancient delicacy. It is not a cultural staple. There is no cover for how gross it is. It arose out of China’s modern attempt to compete with the Western world with disgusting treats. Why you ask? Because Chinese people will eat literally anything.
The Coronavirus, one of the scariest diseases in the modern world, causes extreme stomach discomfort and can result in blindness and deafness. Why is it then that something as simple as bat soup could result in such a disgusting disease?
Because bats carry loads of diseases. You can literally get like a dozen diseases from eating bats. Additionally, humans have not historically eaten bats because of this. In the past, when someone ate them, they stopped because it was so dangerous.
The Chinese have a reckoning. I just hope everyone is okay. But apparently, according to the WHO, 50 million will not be.
