19 Apr What Else Has To Happen?
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert, said on Fox News,
“It boggles my mind how when we have so many diseases that emanate out of that unusual human-animal interface, that we don’t just shut it down. I don’t know what else has to happen to get us to appreciate that.”
“The remarks from America’s top infectious disease expert come as lawmakers and health officials urge Beijing, in particular, to crack down on the marketplaces — where street vendors sell seafood, livestock and other animal products in packed, sometimes open-air environments that are often linked to the transmission of zoonotic viral infections.”
But is it just the wet markets in China that have “unusual” human-animal interfaces from which zoonotic viral infections emanate? During our Corona Healers Education and Solutions Summit, Dr. Aysha Akhtar pointed out that stressed animals in the wildlife trade and factory farms are perfect incubators for novel viruses. Stressed animals, both human and nonhuman, have weakened immune systems which allow novel viruses to multiply and transmute between them. If we continue abusing both human and nonhuman animals in our food, clothing, medicine and entertainment systems, it is only a matter of time before we are afflicted with a virus that has the infectiousness of COVID-19 and the lethality of H5N1 with its horrendous 60% mortality rate.
So why doesn’t it boggle Dr. Fauci’s mind that we are willing to isolate ourselves in our homes and wear face masks in public while we continue to put animal foods in our mouths? Why doesn’t he ask what else has to happen before we shut down all human-animal interfaces in our food, clothing, medicine and entertainment systems that cause unnecessary stress to animals, both human and nonhuman?
What else has to happen before we all go Vegan?
