Despite Coronavirus Pandemic,Wet markets re-opened in China claim reports.
Animals advocates have urged the World Health Organisations to shut down live animal market.
CHINA: The controversial wet markets have re-opened in China, reportedly being the epicenter of the Corona-virus pandemic, according to multiple press source.
It is understood that the virus originated in a wet market in Wuhan where live animals are sold and slaughtered alongside dead ones in December 2019. Since then it has spread globally,with the death toll hitting more than 58,000.
That particular market was shut down by authorities,who said they would strictly supervise wet markets after the pandemic ended and normal life resumed.
“The markets have gone back to operating in exactly the same way as they did before Coronavirus. The only difference is that security guards try to stop anyone from taking pictures which would never have happened before,” said a correspondent in Dongguan.
The novel coronavirus was first detected in the city of Wuhan in November 2019,but according to the daily Mail,Chinese locals view the pandemic as a solved issue in the country and have reportedly gone back to life before the virus.
“Everyone here believes the outbreak is over and there’s nothing to worry about anymore. It’s just a foreign problem now as far as they are concerned,” said a China-based correspondent who took photographs published by the outlet.
As China celebrated it’s ‘Victory’ over the Coronavirus by reopening squalid meat markets of the type that started the pandemic three months ago,with no apparent attempts to raise hygiene standards to prevent a future outbreak.
Terrified Dogs and Cats crammed into rusty cages. Bats and Scorpions offered for sale as traditional medicine. Rabbits and Ducks slaughtered and skinned side by side on a stone floor covered with blood,filth and animal remains.
