Eating wild animal meat has been banned in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the global coronavirus.
According to the British news agency, hunting and eating of wild animals has been officially banned in Wuhan in view of scientific research, epidemics and other conditions.
The move comes at a time when cases of corona virus have been confirmed again in Wuhan a few days ago.
Remember that the corona virus originated from a wildlife market in Wuhan, China, where many animals, including bats, are sold. It is suspected that the virus was transmitted to humans through bats and rats.
China’s Supreme Legislative Committee later considered banning all wildlife trade in China and their use as food, leading to a complete ban on the sale and purchase of these animals. It is thought to be the main cause of the spread of the deadly corona virus.
It is unknown at this time what caused the outbreak. Scientists have speculated that it may have been spread by bats, penguins or other similar animals.
Scientists say the stork virus emerged in bats, then transmitted it to humans via musk call.
Chinese markets include musk bats, bats, snakes, lizards and live wolf cubs that people use as food.
It should be noted that more than 82,000 people have been infected with the corona virus in China so far and 4,634 people have died.
