Where are the hotspots?



Dear Editor,
 
The latest Victorian COVID-19 key outbreak data lists twelve hotspots, of which six are in the business of killing animals for meat. These six companies account for over two thirds of the total cases in these hotspots.
 
Are we getting the message yet? The high-speed killing of terrified animals for their flesh is toxic – in more ways than one.
