long range effects of covid19

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

and has been for a while

this topic is not entirely tongue=in-cheek however

i think corona/covid19/pandemic could be a good opportunity for improvement
or, as we see with current governments, it could go the other way

Interesting take on how this isn't the first and won't be the last pandemic.

That's an interesting point, I think. In a way we're a bit powerless, apart from you know having the power to wash our hands, buy too many masks, and fight over toilet paper. Most countries have been let down by their institutions, and for some reason I can't see this waking people up politically, as it even seems to often drive individuals and ethnicities against one another.

Yep - to a degree

One interesting viewpoint i heard was a Chinese Aust virologist now based in NUSingapore, who has been one of the acknowledged world leaders in Coronavirus epidemiology since the early 1990's. He was part of the team that pinged SARS to bats.
He went to Wuhan end of Jan to study how this one developed.

He was one of those who has been predicting exactly this kind of coronavirus outbreak since before SARS and he is a close observer of Chinese response to the fact (FACT) that coronavirus almost certainly all stem from mammals other than man (mostly from bats in Asia but also other species elsewhere)

He reckons it will be, even now, very difficult for even absolute dictator Xi Ji Pingpong to totally stop the practice by a total ban.
He thinks they are more likely to go for strict controls. and selective to some species only.
It is so deeply ingrained in Chinese culture.

I suspect he is right, unfortunately - nevertheless it is going to go right out of fashion for a while, at least, even without a word from Ji Ji la Sun King

Many of them aren't even wild any more, they're farmed instead. However, with a larger number of species in close proximity to each other and humans, it is easier for viruses in wild animals to cross over. I'd guess that this will eventually be traced back to a farm of some sort of normally wild animal
