Australian scientists are rejoicing that they now have a sample of the virus as the Chinese Govt refused to give it to anyone else to work on. The Australians have sent copies to all the leading institutions to help work on a vaccine. On another note the typical Chinese idea of general health and hygiene practices is not what most in the west consider clean or safe. Go to a wet market where they are cutting up mixed species with the same knifes on the same surfaces (sometimes the sidewalk) without cleaning in between or even wearing gloves, spitting on the ground etc. etc. etc. It's not an individual thing but more the social norm, hopefully this will prompt the Govt to do more education or people change their habits but i highly doubt either will happen. Sterling i live in a high Asian population & they always pick up prod & poke at all the foods (fruit, veg, meat, bread, cakes) in the supermarket, before all this it made me angry but if you were to say anything all you'd hear are the voices calling you a racist. The thing is if its a non Asian I feel the same way & have told them off & was applauded, no one was be upset about that.
