Why do all these flu epidemics start in China? Maybe they should stop raising chickens in their kitchens and bathe every so often.

The vast majority of people in China are either subsistence farmers who raise chickens or are urban residents too poor to afford refrigerators, so they buy live chickens they keep in little cages at home until they are killed and eaten.
It is the same in India and many other Asian countries, but most of those have accountable governments who must care about their people's welfare and so these sorts of problems are rare.
In China, of course, an illegitimate, unaccountable dictatorship is in power, and its thieving officials don't give a damn about the health of the Chinese people they enslave and don't have to, so the public sale of infected, sick chickens is easy if the unscrupulous merchant pays off the Chinese Communist Party's bogus "health" official. They both make a dirty buck and the Chinese people unknowingly eat infected garbage food.
The market for diseased pigs works the same way. A rare "crackdown" lately on the widespread sale of diseased pigs results in the rivers overflowing with them, as the crooks dispose of the tainted meat they'd hoped to sell.
The only thing that could improve things in China is getting rid of the corrupt CCP dictatorship. Until then, China will continue to be the main source of new diseases on earth.
