I dont think they do always start in China - theres some evidence that the Sars-Cov-2 virus was prevalent in the USA and elsewhere at the end of 2019 before the alleged Wuhan lab leek in ChinaGenuine science / medicine question here - why do these global epidemics always seem to originate in the Far East or more specifically China? SARS, bird flu and now this have all started out there.
China’s a diverse country; parts are incredibly densely populated yet prosperous, others more isolated but deprived. Many towns and cities will no doubt be a blend of those extremes. You could probably apply the same to India for instance though, and yet we don’t seem to see the development of new viruses or diseases there in the same way.
So, yeah, why China?
