Is this the only way deadly viruses like Covid-19 could develop?

So the video shows where Covid-19 most likely originated and how.

But are there other ways or other set of circumstances viruses as deadly as this coronavirus might develop?

OK, now that was just gross.

People bitch about US Government regulations, but I, for one, am very glad they’re in place. Never in a million years would that kind of wet, open air farming be allowed here.

^^Sure am hoping the Chinese goverment come up with preventive policies. Worrisome that they should have done something substantial already after SARS but nope.

It seems to be this is a situation where the UN should intervene.

Industrial farming techniques, especially certain meat and waste practices, and over-use of antibiotics, are all likely to eventually produce very dangerous diseases.

Another way is through industrial or military research and development.

Diseases are also natural things that evolve… there’s no “only way” about it. That is, there’s no way to prevent all chance of deadly new diseases, but there are ways to greatly reduce the risks, and there are industrial farming practices and antibiotics overuse practices that are very likely to lead to deadly diseases.
