CNY, Eating Binge, Corona Virus, Greed and Lusts.

Dear all,

Just posted the below comment at Tun Mahathir’s Blog.

Dear PM Tun Dr Mahathir,

My sympathy to those affected by the corona virus outbreak from Wuhan that had mired their CNY celebration and spoiled their plan for having their annual reunion dinner with their loved ones or taking a well-deserved vacation with their beloved family. My brother who works in China was the lucky few able to make it back for this year reunion dinner.

I agree with Tun’s Media and Communication Advisor Datuk A. Kadir Jasin; “China’s appetite for wild life meat is the source of many recent deadly animal-borne diseases,” said Kadir in a Facebook post.

“China’s eating binge could be the beginning of the end of the human race,” said the veteran newsman, adding that China must hold itself accountable.

Once upon a time China was the most corrupt country but thanks to their tough anti corruption campaign by Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), China is able to clear out the corrupt system by employing the latest ICT technology since no corrupt officials can escape spending their ill-gotten wealth without CCDI knowing it. (CCTV footage, financial transactions and money Trail)

We are now living in a Global World and whatever happen in any part of the world will eventually affect all of us. China must hold itself accountable and carry out its moral obligation to teach/educate its citizen to be mindfulness that their appetite/eating binge for wild animals are destroying the wild life’s eco-system and if they did not stop these destructive behavior, there will be more repetitive cities locked down to halt the spreading of deadly wild animals virus jumping to human, with no antidote in sight.

Similarly I would like to appeal to the Western developed countries to halt their unabated appetite to rob/rape the natural resources for wealth accumulation which is the source of many recent deadly wildfires and floods. Their greedy binge and uncontrolled lusts will be the beginning of the end of planet Earth.

Each of us has our individual responsibility and the need to make our own conscious decision to curb our greed and lusts. Please live modestly; after-all what can you do with 1 billion of corrupt, dirty, ill-gotten money when we are only passing through a small period in the history of time…? Please live a purposeful/meaningful life of services above self and whatever good we can do, let’s do it now.

To Civil society and NGOs’ of Western Developed Countries please do your part. If your leaders fail to lead, you need to think/act and press for change until your leaders take heed as the time to act is now, otherwise it will be too late.

“Try and leave this world a little better than you found it, and when your time is up, then you can die a happy death, feeling that at any rate, you have not wasted your time but have done your best” - Robert Baden-Powell

Thank you

Happy CNY 2020 to all, Unity, Harmony and Living with Peace with Self and Others.

Yours truly,

SS LEE

P/S: In this age of Google and Wikipedia, it is wise to seek relevant sources of information to inform oneself rather than listening to hearsay.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Severe_acute_respiratory_syndrome

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory disease of zoonotic origin caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Between November 2002 and July 2003, an outbreak of SARS in southern China caused an eventual 8,098 cases, resulting in 774 deaths reported in 17 countries, with the majority of cases in China mainland and Hong Kong (9.6% fatality rate) according to the World Health Organization (WHO). No cases of SARS have been reported worldwide since 2004. In late 2017, Chinese scientists traced the virus through the intermediary of civets to cave-dwelling horseshoe bats in Yunnan province

The first confirmed case was reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Egyptian virologist Dr. Ali Mohamed Zaki isolated and identified a previously unknown coronavirus from the man's lungs.

Over 2,000 cases of MERS have been reported by 2017 and the case fatality rate is >30%

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Influenza

Influenza spreads around the world in yearly outbreaks, resulting in about three to five million cases of severe illness and about 290,000 to 650,000 deaths. About 20% of unvaccinated children and 10% of unvaccinated adults are infected each year.
