Breaking News Alert Coronavirus May Be Related to Meat-Eating, Sources Warn
Best way to avoid Coronavirus and any other kind of disease is do not kill animals, try to avoid non-veg food, do not lie if you feel something like Coronavirus in you consult with doctor immediately
What are the symptoms caused by the Wuhan coronavirus?
The virus causes pneumonia. Those who have fallen ill are reported to suffer coughs, fever and breathing difficulties. In severe cases there can be organ failure. As this is viral pneumonia, antibiotics are of no use. The antiviral drugs we have against flu will not work. If people are admitted to hospital, they may get support for their lungs and other organs as well as fluids. Recovery will depend on the strength of their immune system.
The global death toll from the new coronavirus has risen to at least 213. Thousands of cases have been confirmed, including 2 in the UK. Now, scientists believe contact with live animals or slaughtered animals’ flesh may be the cause of the disease.

The virus, labelled 2019-nCoV, is similar to other infamous coronaviruses, like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). All three spread from animals to humans, and further research from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that more than 75% of emerging diseases originate in animals. Filthy factory farms, abattoirs, and meat markets threaten the health of every human being on the planet by providing a breeding ground for deadly diseases like the new coronavirus, SARS, bird flu, and more.
Experts theorise that the outbreak might have originated in a market in Wuhan, China, where humans have direct contact with live animals and animal flesh.

According to The Guardian, “Many of those infected either worked or frequently shopped in the Huanan seafood wholesale market in the centre of the Chinese city, which also sold live and newly slaughtered animals. New and troubling viruses usually originate in animal hosts. Ebola and flu are examples.”

‘Go Vegan’ Face Masks
Following the announcement by the Department of Health and Social Care that it has conducted nearly 75 tests for suspected cases of coronavirus in the UK, PETA US is offering new face masks (available to pre-order here) that protect against pathogens while spreading a life-saving message: go vegan.
The masks urge everyone to protect themselves and others by avoiding meat like the plague.
Eating Animals Is Bad for Human Health
For years, scientists have warned that filthy farms crammed full of sick animals are breeding grounds for new, antibiotic-resistant “superbugs”. Some studies claim that by 2050, more people will be dying of such diseases than of cancer.
The United Nations found that the majority of new human diseases originated in animals and that many of those were directly linked to animals used for food.
In addition to carrying a high risk of contamination from pathogens – including E coli, campylobacter, and salmonella – meat contains no fibre and is packed with artery-clogging saturated fat and cholesterol. The World Health Organization states that consuming processed meat causes cancer.
Each person who goes vegan reduces their own risk of suffering from heart disease, obesity, cancer, strokes, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and numerous other health concerns – and spares nearly 200 animals every year daily misery and a terrifying death.
From deadly viruses to the bushfires and rainforest fires fuelled by the climate crisis, eating animals has apocalyptic consequences.
We can’t expect to continue living on Earth as we know it if we continue to eat animals. The best thing you can do for your own health and the world we live in is to go vegan right now.
