China as a communist nation has seen many revolutions. In 1949 there took place a revolution in China were People’s Republic of China under Mao zedong came to power . Before his coming to power . China was a agricultural based economy. But after his coming to power .Mao zedong introduced a policy called a great leap forward in 1958 according to this law all the people lost the ownership of land. The communist government took the ownership of land. He used that land for the sake of industrialization. The time period from 1958 to 1962 was a very tough time for the Chinese citizens. Famine broke out in the country. Due to no agricultural production over 35 million people died due to hunger according to communist government which is doubted. China was rich in wildlife so people started to hunt animals for their livelihood. In 1960 itself in sichuan province over 60000 dear were hunted. Due to alarming hunting Mongolian gazelle became extinct. These were the circumstances which made Chinese people to eat wild animals.
In 1988 the Chinese government passed the wildlife protection act in 1988. The basic principle behind this act was business . This act legalized wildlife trade and domestication of wildlife .In 2017 China has the wildlife trade worth 70 billion dollars . It has given livelihood to 14 million people. The Chinese wet markets are the hotspots of Zoonotic diseases. In these wet markets dear, snakes, Bats, and other wildlife’s are sold. These Chinese wet markets are the birth place of many viruses. Sarus virus , bird flu , hanga virus, and corona virus etc there might be many other viruses which are not been revealed by the Communist China. Even after committing these many biological errors. China has only banned consumption of wildlife. But hunting, killing and trading of wildlife is not restricted. As because it is the matter of trade and monetary benefit.
The corona virus outbreak took place on December 2019(In Wuhan of June province of China). World health organization declared outbreak to be a public health emergency of International concern on 30 of January. On March 2020 it was declared as Pandemic .Before declaring all these medical emergency the WHO has tweeted by saying that it won’t spread to humans and this is confirmed by Chinese medical experts.
Certain doubts arise regarding China that how is it possible for the virus to spread in only one province of China . And this virus reaches Italy which is approximately 8000kms away. But it doesn’t spreads to Shanghai a great economic hub of China which is just 800kms away. China has put the whole world in corona stake. And even all the countries are targeting China for this Pandemic.
The world health organization declared corona virus as global pandemic. But the United nations countries were not at all worried about it . The countries didn’t bother at all . No country screened the foreign travellers in airports. The so called developed nations USA, France , Italy, Germany, Britain. Neglected this virus in starting stage. which has now caused a historical damage to these countries. The surprising aspect of this Pandemic breakdown is the developing countries like India , Pakistan, South Africa are doing well in containing the virus. But still the future is not predicted . Till now South Korea has been successful in combating the pandemic.
This Corona virus to spread like a wild fire all countries are equally responsible and China stands at the peak .China didn’t inform the world about what this virus can do. Other countries even after WHOs remarks. Didn’t implement protective measures like screening. Effective screening could have saved many countries from this Pandemic .But still it is not late . Effect lockdown with people’s coordination can defeat this virus.
