Stop wild animal markets in China

Both SARS and COVID-19 are in the "coronavirus" family, and both appear to have emerged from animals in China's notorious wildlife markets.

While most people in China do not eat wild animals, even one market of live and freshly-killed animals can create a viral outbreak. The continued existence of wildlife markets, which are considered potential breeding grounds for the spread of harmful viruses, means it's just a matter of time before the world is hit with another deadly pandemic, some scientists suggest. 

Chinese authorities in January “temporarily“ closed down the Wuhan city “wet” market after five of its workers were among the first diagnosed with what would become COVID-19. However, China is now permitting wild animal markets to resume selling bats, believed to be the source for the deadly coronavirus while the disease is still spreading and causing increasing deaths world wide.

China continues to do wild animal farming and against all the warnings and future risks. The Chinese government must stop this type of wild animal farming and close contact of bats and other animals in their meet market. They are making every one to pay for their negligence. Wild life markets should be banned and shut down for ever.
