I know other countries eat animals but there should be a more humane way to do things, I'm literally shaking while writing this.

My thoughts exactly. If they want to eat them that's all well and good. At the very least they should be treated humanely until they are killed,as sad as it is. Who are we to judge another culture? The OP made a valid point though that those conditions are ripe for some type of disease outbreak. Let's hope that doesn't happen.
Where has this virus come from? No one knows. It may be a mutation of an existing virus. Some new infections come from viruses that have been circulating in animals or birds. These are known as zoonoses. These may sometimes cause mild infection in some species and more serious ones in others. There is no evidence at the moment that this is a zoonosis.
