    From what I've read/heard....COVID 19 is another animal to human virus, though I'm not sure they've actually identified the initial animal or human that started it.

    In Contagion....it was a Bat that started the ball rolling.

    finding the source can be done post game. Containment is the issue at hand.

    Sorry, was agreeing with you - meant it wasn't eerie but almost expected based on past contagions from Asia or Africa. I read that pangolins were possible carriers of it (not sure if they confirmed it yet) as well as other animals and while it doesn't affect them, once it transfers to a human the result is different. Even with koalas, you have to be careful handling some to avoid disease transfer (and that doesn't involve eating them).

    99% match genome sequence but some theories suggest may involve another animal before transfer to human- just like the movie - bats to pigs to human.

    Koalas get eaten???

    Yes possibly - I think they hypothesized bats since they were being eaten/sold in the wildlife markets but same goes for pangolins. Probably other wild animals carrying also.

    There will be lots of those with climate change.

    my understanding is that the flue historically developed in Asia and was transmitted annually by bird migration.

    modern travel has provided new mechanisms of distribution but I believe various strains of flu still originate in central Asia.

    do you mean the drastic reduction in annual burn acreage or the general cooling trend?
