The first thing that I heard was that the virus was caused by someone eating a bat in China. Which to me made perfect sense in the fact that it came through China and then everywhere. I think that it is crazy that you would even eat a bat because other then that this whole incident could of been avoided. My opinion has changed a little bit in the fact that so many people have died and are continuing to do so. When I look back on this virus so many things have changed and the origin of this virus was pretty weird.

Who originally created this object? (If you created this object, such as photo, then put "self" here.)
