It’s not a new virus tho They eat everything so it's not surprised Another vaccine HollyAnnPark3r 😮😮😮 And they built a the great wall to stop people getting in 🤣🤣 When you eat roadkill and drink whatever comes off it what can you expect. I suppose most of the bat eaters have body parasites as a general rule.

After trade war this is media war against china. China is a reality accept it America is not a only 1 super power now. Game is change!!! Because they’re a bunch of disgusting dirty buggers!! They need to be quarantined for like everrrrrrrr!! Always been that way 🤢 🤮💩💩💩 This country really needs to sort it self out !!! It’s absolutely ridiculous the amount of shit they’ve put the world in these past few months , enough is enough ....

ok j Oh piss of china They fuckers will eat anything eh Just nuke China. Thanks China Any news on the murder hornets or didn’t they catch on? 🐝 They probably eat the ticks raw as anything is food to them It's the sun 😆 must have run out of Gemma Collins pictures No way China again !!!!!!! Hopefully this time it only has a taste for Chinese.

Λυπαμαι πολυ Who gives a Fxxk . Bollocks to China Distribution of ticks and them causes illness, give everyone a science. Don't wear shorts in the grass in summer. No coming and going, if you go there you stay China is mother of all germs, source of all deadly viruses. WTF is tic- bone disease ? They didnt cook them well enough.

OMG! For the time being, all the international flight should not run between China and rest of the world. In simple terms we need to quarantine China to avoid another COVID__19 like situation or even worse than that I have no desire to visit China. We have ticks in our own country that carry deadliy viruses ,so this is nothing but bad press playing on your fears due to cvd19 . The sun should be embarrassed for such tactics to get readers , Ticks in Britain can cause death & severe problems for ppl bitten by infected ticks.

Someone plss stop China We as Brits don’t want another new virus hitting us as we haven’t dealt COVID-19 yet. It would be too much to cope Aiit. 2020 is total shit! That country is riddled 😏

Over a million people live in subterranean tunnels in ChinaChina's rat tribe: Over a million people live in tunnels underneath Beijing 50 years after Chairman Mao told them to 'dig deep' So we can’t even nuke the yellow menace to oblivion. I’ve got to hand it to them, their world domination has been well thought out.

Over a million people live in subterranean tunnels in ChinaThe underground city, dubbed 'The Dungeon', was constructed in 1969 when the threat of nuclear war was at its peak. 🙄😳✌️🏼🤘🏼👌🏼💪🏼🙏🏼👩🏼‍💻 Maths are cruel indeed! If you consider those million people as homeless and compare the figures versus the populations, you'll find that with its 64,000,000 inhabitants, UK homeless represent 0.5% of its population. China with 1,398,000,000 inhabitants has only 0.07% hobos😳 It’s better than living in the street of cities in the UK.
