The Chinese government forced the host of a TV show which popularized eating bats to apologize in the aftermath of the coronavirus outbreak, which scientists have linked to the consumption of wild animals.
Bat soup is a delicacy in some areas of China and was known to be sold at the illegal animal market in Wuhan blamed for being the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak.
A show called Beauty Eats Bats which originally launched in 2016 was blamed for re-invigorating the trend of eating bats across the country, prompting the Chinese Communist Party to demand that its female host discourage the consumption of bats.
The woman featured in the clip took to social media to profusely apologize for her role in encouraging the consumption of bats and encouraged everyone to start washing their hands more.

The video shows the woman breaking apart the corpse of a boiled bat, dipping its wing in sauce and eating it.
Meanwhile, the scale of the coronavirus outbreak continues to escalate.
56 million Chinese citizens have now been quarantined, with Chinese authorities claiming that around 1300 people have been infected so far.
However, according to one hospital worker in Wuhan, the government is lying and over 100,000 people have actually been infected.
The Wall Street Journal reported today that the United States will send a chartered flight to evacuate all of its citizens and diplomats out of Wuhan.
According to official figures, the virus has killed 41 people, although many suspect this number to be far higher.
Meanwhile, it’s probably a good idea for Chinese citizens to stop eating bats and other wild animals that are vectors for disease.

“This Is Personal”: McCarthy Hits Back After Gaetz Removal Threat
Update (1146ET): House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Sunday responded to a threat by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to oust him from the Speakershp, telling CBS News’ “Face The Nation” that it’s “personal” for the Florida lawmaker.
“That’s nothing new, he’s tried to do that from the moment I ran for office,” said McCarthy, adding “I’ll survive, you know this is personal with Matt.”
“Matt voted against the most conservative bill to protect our border…secure border,” McCarthy continued.
Gaetz, meanwhile, hopped on ABC‘s “This Week” to say that McCarthy will get his wish, and that he’s going to file a motion this week to vacate him as speaker.
* * *
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) announced on Sunday that he will file a motion this week to remove McCarthy as speaker, and will use a parliamentary process that hasn’t resulted in the removal of a speaker since 1910.
The move comes after McCarthy reached across the aisle for bipartisan support to pass a Continuing Resolution which will keep the US government operating until mid-November, and then Democrats revealed that McCarthy had struck a side deal to guarantee Ukraine funds at a later date.
Speaking with CNN‘s “State of the Union,” Gaetz said he will file what’s known as a motion to vacate.
“I think we need to rip off the Band-Aid,” said Gaetz. “I think we need to move on with new leadership that can be trustworthy.“
When asked how many Republicans were behind him, Gaetz said he has enough.
“Enough so that when you host this show next week, if Kevin McCarthy is still Speaker of the House he will be serving at the pleasure of the Democrats,” said Gaetz. “He will be working for the Democrats. The only way that McCarthy will be Speaker of the House is if Democrats bail him out. Now they probably will.”
Gaetz’s announcement came just hours after the CR was passed, and says it’s the latest in a string of broken promises by McCarthy.
“This isn’t personal. This is about spending,” said Gaetz. “This is about the deal Kevin McCarthy made.”
McCarthy will need a simple majority of the House to stop Gaetz’s effort to oust him. If just five Republicans join the Democrats, it could work. Democrats, meanwhile, would generally be expected to back such a motion since they would prefer one of their own, Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) as speaker.
“I’m going to be totally blunt. There are a lot of trust issues in my chamber right now,” said Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), who thinks McCarthy is in trouble, in a statement to Fox News.
As Bloomberg further notes,
Even if McCarthy survives the current mutiny, Republican dissenters could call for a new vote at any time or impose procedural hurdles to block consideration of legislation. That essentially requires him to either maintain the alliance with Democrats—essentially a coalition government in the House—or resolve differences with hardliners who now have one more reason to resent his leadership.
In 2015, then-Speaker John Boehner resigned when hardliners threatened such a rebellion rather than rely on Democratic votes to remain in power.
House Democrats led by Representative Hakeem Jeffries of New York could decide to bail out McCarthy,even if they don’t actually cast votes to keep him in his post. Enough members could simply not show up, hold back their votes, or merely vote “present,” lowering the threshold number of “nays” to removal that McCarthy needs to prevail.
Weeks ago Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) says he and other Democrats would consider helping McCarthy remain in power, but backpedaled on those comments after the speaker authorized the formal impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden, which Phillips called an act of “pandering.”This post was originally published at Zero Hedge
Excess Deaths From Cardiovascular Diseases Up 44% Last Year Among UK Citizens Aged 15-44: Report
Using official government data for deaths in England and Wales between 2010 and 2022, former BlackRock portfolio manager Ed Dowd and his partners at Phinance Technologies found that excess death rates from cardiovascular diseases were up 13% in 2020, 30% in 2021, and 44% in 2022, which “point to a worrying picture of an even greater acceleration in coming years of deaths & disabilities.”
What’s more, they found that “deaths per year from cardiovascular diseases had been trending lower from 2010 to
2019, with a significant downward slope,” until 2020, when the trend reversed. They also found that in 2022, men began outpacing women in cardiovascular diseases.
The analysis also found that disabilities are skyrocketing.
Dowd and co. conclude that: “When looking at excess deaths for cardiovascular diseases, the Z-score in 2020 was around 3, indicating that prior to the start of the vaccinations there was already a signal pointing to an increase in cardiovascular deaths. That trend however accelerated substantially in 2021 and 2022 where we observe Z-scores of around 7.5 and 10.5, respectively. These are extreme events that we believe need a thorough investigation.”This post was originally published at Zero Hedge
Video: Biden Tells People To Stop Questioning COVID Shots
“I just would urge those in public life and both political parties or no political party to be cautious”
In remarks made Wednesday, Joe Biden argued that people, including potential “leaders” should stop saying “inflammatory things” about COVID vaccinations and fall into line with what his administration is telling them to do.
“What leaders say matter, in terms of people’s confidence in things they’re not sure about,” biden began.
He continued, “And one of those areas — you saw what happened with regard to the crisis — health crisis that we had that cost us — we lost well over a million people. And as time began to move on, you had more and more voices saying, “No, no, no. You don’t need to get that shot. You don’t need to be — get — you don’t need to.”
“We have a new strain of COVID now, and we have answers for it,” Biden contended, further stating “I just would urge those in public life and both political parties or no political party to be cautious about the ac- — the sometimes inflammatory things you say about this, because people’s lives are at stake.”
That will be the COVID shots that don’t prevent anyone from getting COVID or stop transmission of the virus then will it? The ones that cause more serious side effects in children than they do save lives?
The comments come in the wake of revelations that Anthony Fauci was secretly escorted into CIA and State Department meetings to steer the direction of the COVID origins investigation away from the lab leak evidence.
