The World Health Organization has not conclusively confirmed the origin of the coronavirus outbreak. However, many experts are in agreement that a live-animal market in China is the source of the virus.
The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) states that three out of every four new infectious diseases come from animals.
The often unsanitary and overcrowded conditions at factory farms make these environments ideal for bacteria to thrive. The large numbers of workers present at these farms further fuels this problem as they can contract and spread these germs.
“Fifty years ago, a US farmer who raised pigs or chickens might be exposed to several dozen animals for less than an hour a day” explained a 2008 report.
“Today’s confinement facility worker is often exposed to thousands of pigs or tens of thousands of chickens for eight or more hours each day.”
