Live animals are still for sale in Chinese food markets that reopened after the country recently declared victory over coronavirus.
Cages full of cats and dogs waiting for slaughter and the unsanitary preparation of animals is again reportedly a common sight in Chinese food markets, often called wet-markets, according to in-country correspondents with the Daily Mail.
China ordered that its wet-markets be shut down in January after facts emerged suggesting that coronavirus was first transmitted to humans via bats and other live animals sold in the often filthy places of commerce.
However, now that China says it’s beaten the virus, the markets seem to have resumed business as usual. Another correspondent in Guilin, photographed bats, snakes, spiders, lizards and scorpions for sale as remedies for common illnesses.
