Deadly virus China market exotic meats

Chinese market at heart of deadly virus sold koala, snakes, bats, wolf pups and more

The questionable, most would say nasty, offerings of exotic meat at the Chinese market where a new, deadly virus has emerged is believed to be tied to the mystery illness’ development and outbreak. According to multiple sources, the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan offers customers a wide variety of meat taken from animals that most people outside of China would never consider consuming.

As reported by the New York Post, other “exotic” meat offerings included salamanders, crocodile, koala, bats, porcupines and camel and fox. The huge market was shuttered after the deadly outbreak of the deadly new strain of coronavirus.

According to the Post, Chinese health officials believe that consumption of one of these exotic meats is behind the quickly spreading virus.

Over 500 people in China have contracted the virus, with 17 deaths. The first case of coronavirus in the United States was a man who traveled from Wuhan to Seatac Airport. He is currently hospitalized in Everett, Washington, in “satisfactory” condition. The second case is tied to a woman in Chicago, Illinois, who was just diagnosed with the virus.

    Ditto Jan Barnes! I have been praying for God to find these EVIL demons with reaping what THEY have sown. I pray this virus serves to open their GREEDY, SADISTIC eyes. They also claim that TORTURE makes the meat taste better, yet when one looks at the chemistry of it, the hormones released ACTUALLY make the meat tougher and more acidic. Not appealing to ANYONE I know. YUCK! That is WHY some of your store bought meat from FACTORY FARMS taste worse on some and not others. It’s a tell that THIS particular animal was TORTURED RIGHT before slaughter.

    Beyond disgusting!!! The Daily Mail has snapshots of the market and videos which are absolutely horrendous.

    Hard to believe people can be this cruel…..

    What is so horrible is that many innocent people who have nothing to do with this market are already sick or dead….. at the rate this illness spreads, its terrifying…… many more innocent people around the world will soon be suffering…..
