Racist memes target Chinese eating habits, but the real causes of the coronavirus are more mundane.

At a time of heightened fear over a viral pandemic, the Palau video has been deployed in the United States and Europe to renew an old narrative about the supposedly disgusting eating habits of foreigners, especially Asians. Images of Chinese people or other Asians eating insects, snakes, or mice frequently circulate on social media or in clickbait news stories. This time, that was mixed with another old racistidea: that the “dirty” Chinese are carriers of disease. Many Americans long believed that, as the New York Daily Tribune wrote in 1854, Chinese people were “uncivilized, unclean, filthy beyond all conception.” Today, those same ideas have often been transferred to other groups such as South American refugees, yet they still persist in the way some Westerners think about China.

These prejudices can fuel fear and racism. As the Wuhan virus spreads, the Chinese as a group are more and more likely to be blamed for its incubation and spread. In countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia, where there are already clashes around ethnic Chinese, those sentiments could turn nasty. In the West, especially under the Trump administration, it could fuel both government and public prejudices.

What's the conspiracy exactly? I simply gave relevant context to the 'bat soup' meme.

Your response to the meme is fine. Racism = bad. We can all agree on that, right? But I think it's quit safe to criticize China and those involved in the wildlife food trade (both the sellers and the buyers).

Spoiled because it's not a meme:

One would hope, but we all know that's not really the case these days. I just wanted folks to be aware that the 'bat soup' thing is quite specifically racist, but was not suggesting that anyone posting it is specifically racist. Ignorant to its origin/purpose, maybe. But as a smart fella once said; if you don't know, now you know.
It's what you do with that info that matters. Do you continue to spread racist rhetoric knowing that's what it is, or do you reconsider?

But I think it's quit safe to criticize China and those involved in the wildlife food trade (both the sellers and the buyers).

Thanks, I'll check that out. I don't disagree with your point, just to be clear.
