The Chinese elders have a habit of spitting no matter where they are and see no wrong in it. They also see no wrong in having live animals alongside prepared meats in markets.
They do not like the Chinese youth following Western culture so it will be difficult for them to change their ways.
Flights to and from China should have all been cancelled but as this has been going on well before the epidemic was main news then possibly that may have been to late of an action.
A strain that jumps from animal to animal then from animal to human then human to human won't go away. It will be suppressed but thats your wack.
