When Myxamatosis struck the world's rabbit population--- In the UK it was only possible to buy Chinese rabbits.
It's a funny old world!
Incidentally Myxamatosis started in China!!

Mycamatosis is, of course, very different to Corvid19 regardless of it's origin. It is spread from Rabbit to Rabbit by fleas and mosquitoes. Whereas Corvid19 is pneumonic (i.e. air spread) much like the plagues of the middle ages. I don't think anyone pointed the finger at China back then but we did catch it from our European cousins.

It seems the pneumonic plague virus is caused principally by eating raw marmot liver a delicacy out east.
A marmot is a species of squirrel.

I think the bubonic plague was introduced to Europe by Venetian merchants whos ships, and accompanying rats were trading with Asia.

That's probably because the Black Death was the bubonic plague :rolleyes:


Read and enjoy, even if it is wiki!
Pneumonic plague is the one featured in Ring a ring 'o roses---
and Bubonic Plague in Black Death.
Just retuned fom Stockholm where life continues blissfully on --Covid notwithstanding.
I understand South Korea is the same. We played our part in the Korean War saving it from communism but appears to have benefitted little from it ourselves. Sweden still enjoys Free Love.
