China was the first country that faced the threat and scare of Coronavirus among all the world nations. It is a general belief that the virus came to life in China as the research indicates the virus has jumped from animals to humans. China has a large wild animal fostering industry.
Its meat markets generally known as “wet markets” are believed to be the centre of the origin of Coronavirus. It all started with the 1970s famine in China. When people started dying due to hunger, they turned to eating whatever they could find. Seeing this, some farmers in China’s rural areas took to wild animal farming and they started breeding wild animals like pangolins in their backyards.
This gave the government some relief as the people had found a way to satisfy their hunger on their own. Gradually the wild life industry became so large and profitable that Chines government issued the farmers licenses allowing them to breed wild animals for the purpose of meat.

Thus, the scientists believe the wild life industry to be the originating point of deadly viruses like SARS and COVID-19. Chinese people showed a great sense of responsibility and discipline in dealing with the sudden outbreak of Coronavirus. Wuhan city was the most badly affected area in the whole of China. The government took some timely measures such as building prefabricated hospitals within weeks.
Almost 40,000 doctors were immediately called to the Hubei province who worked day and night to fight with this fatal virus. Over the period of two months Chinese were able to overcome the viral spread and right now there is no patient of Corona being reported in the country. Chinese government is extending help to other countries to share its expertise and experience in the fight against Coronavirus.
