We’re sure you have heard about the novel coronavirus (which causes COVID-19) and know that it’s not only affecting the way we’re living but also hurting others. But you might not know why or how it began in the first place. So we’ve created an easy-to-understand comic strip that explains where the virus started and suggests simple things that everyone can do to help prevent something like this from happening again.
Raising and killing animals for food is terrible for the environment, and eating animals is really unhealthy—even potentially deadly—for humans. This pandemic is just another example showing how hurting animals hurts us, too. Animals aren’t ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or exploit or abuse in any other way. There has never been a more important time to stop seeing animals as things we can use and start seeing them as individuals we must respect. Share this comic strip with your friends to spread the word!
