Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.
The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell. As of Today the Whole World has been shut and in lockdown as the Corona virus is rampaging across the world. As of today the virus has killed more than 40,000 people and infected almost 800,000 worldwide.

On December 31 2019, China alerted WHO to several cases of unusual pneumonia in Wuhan, a port city of 11 million people in the central Hubei province after supressing the news for almost two months. The virus was unknown.Several of those infected worked at the city's Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, (WET MARKET). Cases reported in December 2019, two-thirds were found to have a link with the WET market.

The presence of a large reservoir of SARS-CoV-like viruses in horseshoe bats, together with the culture of eating exotic mammals in southern China, is a time bomb. The possibility of the reemergence of SARS and other novel viruses from animals or laboratories and therefore the need for preparedness should not be ignored.

The wet Market also are responsible for trafficking of Endangered Wildlife from across the World . Inspite of damage across the World China has the audacity to start the Wuhan Wet Markets again as of today the markets have started opening.

It is time that Citizens across the world should pressurise the UN and the World Leaders to stop these markets which are a source of seriod diseases and also leads to trafficking of animals
