Why new viruses tend to spawn in China


The famous Russian virologist, the head of the department of microbiology of latent infections at the Gamaley Institute, doctor of medical sciences, professor Viktor Zuev explained why China is the "home" of various infections, many of which have not been seen before by humanity.


According to the professor, a number of features inherent in the Celestial Empire contribute to this situation: a large crowded population, a humid warm climate, and, according to the virologist, the most important thing is the Chinese ability to eat almost all animals available to them.

I visited China and observed with my own eyes: there, if you enter the market, you get to a real zoo, and if you enter a pharmacy, you also get to a real zoo

- the edition passes his words "Moscow Komsomol".

The professor further explains that bats that are “literally stuffed with viruses” are a particularly dangerous dish from the Chinese menu.

As a result, the mixing of animal and human viruses leads to the appearance of the very infections that China exports to certain countries of the world with a certain frequency — COVID-19, Hong Kong flu, SARS, and Spanish flu.

The professor also noted that the virus cannot be eaten with food - it can travel around the world only with the help of an infected host.

    And Viktor Zuev did not explain how 50 stamps of other viruses can be contained in one virus? For 2000 years, humanity has studied all diseases and viruses. Therefore, I do not believe that this virus is natural. Everything new is the work of human hands!

      ... how can one virus contain 50 stamps of other viruses?

      - firstly, not straPov, strains. Secondly, several viruses, being inside the same host, can exchange their genetic materials during replication in cells.

      For 2000 years, humanity has studied all diseases and viruses.

      - Really? For 2000 years (of which only a microscope has been used for the last 400 years), mankind has not discovered a thousandth of all infectious pathogens.

        These are EXTREMELY speculations of the "doctor" of the Gamaley Institute, Professor Viktor Zuev.
        "Doctors" about medical sciences and his nonsense, far from the real situation.

        He may be a doctor, but in terms of regularity, he DOESN’T have enough sense to understand that the STATES and the Pentagon secret US bio laboratories are scattered all over the world and surround Russia and China from all sides !!!

        The US Pentagon spends billions of dollars to develop bio-terrorism plans against the whole world.
        And this "doctor" cannot understand simple American democratic arithmetic!

        The main political slogan of the Trump administration and the American bigwigs, from criminal politics and the criminal business of the United States, comes down to the formula:

        China is to blame. China must be punished, and this is the only way we will make America great again.

        The United States infected China in order to ruin it and inflict irreparable political and economic damage on it.

    Ebola, HIV, West Nile fever, MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus), SARS (SARS), are no longer considered diseases? Did the professor say anything about them? The plague in Europe was, apparently, because the enlightened Europeans used rodents?
    Diseases from everywhere, but we will talk about the Chinese, eating all sorts of nasty things?
    French cuisine with frogs and snails is, of course, another? Or Icelandic Haucarl (rotten shark), Italian cheese with live larvae of a fly, a new European fashion for eating insects and worms, is not interesting to anyone?
    And by the way, pundits have established where exactly the epidemic originated? Who is this mysterious first patient? Where can I find the research results? And then the Chinese blame the United States, they say, from there the infection came.

    In this I agree with you. But the whole problem is that it is virtually impossible to distinguish a man-made virus from a natural one! Yes, I am also convinced that this is a man-made or modified virus, but these are my speculations, so to speak.

      No, it’s not man-made, 5 strains are 99,95% similar. He went to people 2-3 years ago. Not the fact that in China. It's just that China now has a much more effective anti-epidemic service. Check for pathogens of any sick. Therefore, they reveal the first.
      And in the United States, a doctor's attempts to declare a coronavirus infection "vaper disease" (in 2018) caused violent indignation: when he died from pneumonia of unknown origin, insurance payments were 10 times less than death from a viral infection.
      And we had a wave of pneumonia in September-October last year - everything was in the framework of seasonal acute respiratory infections, he died from complications - "as usual." Nobody bothered to look for the cause of death at the genetic level.

    Yes, there a tunnel was dug from America for the delivery of viruses, which is why everything happens. Why not? After all, in the late 30s, self-incrimination was accepted as evidence:

    We were digging a tunnel from Bombay to London.

      The construction of a tunnel from Bombay to London was mentioned as an accusation in the film "Repentance" by the Georgian director Tengiz Abuladze. Of course, the filmmakers have the right to fiction, but in real life there were hardly any accusations of such "engineering projects" in the USSR even in the 30s.

    In my humble opinion, it will not be correct to blame China for the origin, "as a rule," of new viruses. Data on the origin of the current virus is rather contradictory.
    Further. Eat "almost all the animals available to them" are consumed not only by China, but also by the whole of Southeast Asia and most of Africa.
    Finally, as far as I know, the Chinese have nothing to do with the aforementioned "Spanish flu", so this article is not objective.

    Because spring begins in the northern hemisphere earlier than anyone else ... Someone did not know about this?
    And the food has nothing to do with it, raw they don’t eat bats !? Even with light temperature stress, the virus dies. Another thing is that BEFORE cooking they touch the product and future food with their hands - yes ... But what they ate is not. You can safely eat chicken that has undergone heat treatment in normal mode with Bird Flu.

        What do you mean why? Around the corner. yes Poultry workers do not have time to eat tons of dead birds.
        But seriously, with normal heat treatment, for example, the same salmonellosis dies, it is enough to fry the eggs from two sides. But no one will put such eggs on sale. So with the bird, it is only a source of infection. Hospitals for hens have not yet been built.

    Why do new viruses usually originate in China ???

    The casket OPENS simply and democratically.
    The main political slogan of the Trump administration and the American bigwigs, from criminal politics and the criminal business of the United States, comes down to the formula:

    China is to blame. China must be punished, and this is the only way we will make America great again.

    The United States infected China in order to ruin China and cause irreparable political and economic damage.

    Remember - one, the second - can be attributed to chance, and the third - this is a regularity and intent to infect China, and is directed against China.

    The birthplace of the American coronavirus is not China, but the sinister Pentagon laboratories of the United States, which are scattered throughout the world.
    The virus first appeared in the STATES !!! Remember. IN THE STATES !!!
    About five thousand Americans died in the STATES in the fall of 2019 from incomprehensible pneumonia, and the US authorities did not conduct an investigation and did not take timely sanitary and medical measures.

    There are already at least four self-sustaining outbreaks in the world outside of China.
    Each of the economies that the epidemic could cover is comparable in size and importance to China:

    1. Outbreak in East Asia with a center in South Korea and Japan;
    2. In the Middle East with a center in Iran;
    3. In North America with a center in the USA;
    4. The largest in Europe - with a center in Italy.
    Obviously, the epidemic itself and the fight against it outside of China are just beginning.
    It is not yet possible to accurately predict their magnitude, but it is already clear that the consequences will be dire.

    The United States infected China in order to ruin it and inflict irreparable political and economic damage on it.

    The coronavirus, which is now killing thousands of people around the world, was commissioned by the EcoHealth Alliance, a division of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), responsible for environmental and health issues with US government grants.

    In pursuit of American money, 9 scientists from 4 US research centers, as well as China and Switzerland, participated in the development of the deadly virus, a whole scientific international.

    An article on scientific research in the United States was officially published on November 9, 2015 in the American scientific journal Nature.
    Original title of the material: A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence.
    Translated into Russian, it sounds like this: "A SARS-like group of bat coronaviruses demonstrates the potential for switching to humans."
    So everyone can still verify this information on the journal’s website.

    The virus first appeared in the STATES !!! Remember. IN THE STATES !!!
    Rossiyskaya Gazeta wrote on November 14.11.2015, XNUMX -

    In 2015, American non-fiction publications reported that during a laboratory experiment in the United States, a hybrid form of bat coronavirus was successfully created that could be transmitted to a fatal person !!!

    The article is published on the newspaper’s website and everyone can find it there.

    This raises a legitimate question. - Why should USID criminals from USAID investigate the possibility of infecting people with a deadly virus that does not exist in nature?
    Past strange epidemics have also raised questions for the United States.

    Why did the US Army Institute of Molecular Pathology (AFIP) in 1997 remove the lung tissue of a resident of Alaska who died in 1918 from a Spanish pandemic and was buried in permafrost?
    The answer is simple.
    To recreate the strain of this disease H1N1, which was done in 2002.

    And then, as if by themselves, varieties of this flu arose.

    In 2002-2003 - Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), better known as SARS;
    in 2009, an outbreak of a new strain of the H1N1 virus subtype virus, known as “swine flu”;
    in April 2013, the appearance of the H7N9 “bird flu” variety in China, when 543 of 175 cases died.

    So all these epidemics were organized by AMERICANS !!!

    You just take a look.

    The USA infected the whole world with the Pentagon coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
    The United States unleashed oil terrorism against Russia.
    The United States unleashed military aggression against Venezuela.

    American democracy is the most atrocious and barbaric in the world.
    Only Russia can stop this American TERRORISM!
    How? The time will come and you will know.
