Wrong to blame our food habits

My husband and I run a factory, where we make lighting fixtures for export. My city is limping back to normalcy. Our temperatures are checked at traffic signals and in public places. When we go out, we have to carry our identification card. But very few people step out of their homes. Even now public places are filled with notices asking us to stay home. Nobody comes out without wearing masks. Everything is brought online, including fruits and vegetables. Children attend online classes. Free medicines and care are being provided to Covid-19 patients. Hospital sources tell me that patients are recovering. We know that our government is taking effective action. It is wrong to say that the virus came from wild animals or our food habits. It may have started in some other country.
