WUHAN, CHINA— Chinese shoppers won’t see lion, peacock, bat, or snake at the wet markets in Wuhan, for a while. Dr. Anthony Fauci of the US Coronavirus Task Force called for a worldwide shutdown of wet markets weeks ago. It’s widely believed the animal to human transmission of the virus happened there. Now, Newsweek.com reports the city of Wuhan has banned the eating of wild animals. This, along with the hunting and trading of wildlife, for the next 5 years.
Newsweek says most of the World Health Organization’s member states want an independent investigation into the cause of the outbreak. The Chinese government is not on board, saying “they are being unfairly targeted by the international community.”
