Do we have any evidence that "exotic animal consumption" led to the Zoonotic transfer of the virus from bats to humans? Wiki
Zoonoses can be caused by a range of disease pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites; of 1,415 pathogens known to infect humans, 61% were zoonotic.[5] Most human diseases originated in other animals; however, only diseases that routinely involve non-human to human transmission, such as rabies, are considered direct zoonosis

While there is little dispute that the virus originated in China and also that China is an authoritarian state with some (to us) odd beliefs, is that a correlation or a causative factor?
