Shockingly, China’s Wet Markets are Reopening; Will We Ever Learn?
Reports show China's wet markets, which scientists believe triggered the coronavirus pandemic, have reopened after relaxed lockdown measures.
- Fox and Daily Mail report wet markets in China, which are suspected to be the origin of coronavirus, are reopening.
- Studies dating back to 2007 have described wet markets and bat consumption as a “time bomb” for a virus outbreak.
- Authorities have to restrict wet markets to prevent new outbreaks, at least until the coronavirus pandemic subsides.
Wet markets in China have reportedly reopened after easing of lockdown measures across several cities. Studies dating back to 2007 have suggested that wet markets and the consumption of bats are a “time bomb” for a coronavirus outbreak.
Tucker Carlson said:
Wild animal wet markets have long been recognized as a major pandemic threat. As coronavirus spread, China announced it would crackdown on them obviously, but it looks like the crackdown didn’t last long.
With scientists pointing towards the Chinese horseshoe bat as the likely origin of coronavirus, the resumption of consuming and capturing bats poses a threat of the continuous spread of the virus.
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 taking pictures which would never have happened before.
Bat Eating And Wet Markets Must Be Stopped To Prevent Coronavirus
The coronavirus pandemic is en route to impose possibly the worst recession in the U.S.and in the global economy since the Great Depression in 1929.
The U.S. stocks have recovered through aggressive fiscal policies, but the threat to manufacturing, retail, and other major industries across the U.S., Europe, and even China place the world at risk of a prolonged economic downturn.
To prevent another coronavirus outbreak from occurring in the future, it is critical to eliminate practices that are suspected to have led to the virus outbreak.
As CCN.com reported, in 2007, Clinical Microbiology Reviews Journal released a study detailing the possibility of a SARS-like epidemic reemerging in the future as a result of the viruses contained in bats.
