Republican lawmakers call for ban on wet markets in China

Two Republican lawmakers have urged President Donald Trump to call on his counterpart Xi Jinping to immediately close the wet markets in China.

In a letter to Trump, Congressman Alcee Hastings and Vern Buchanan expressed serious concerns over China’s lax regulation of live animal markets that are directly linked to the spread of the deadly COVID-19 and others zoonotic diseases.

According to the two legislators, increased surveillance for public health reasons was urgently needed to prevent future deadly disease epidemics.

In their letter, they pointed out that scientists researching the virus suspect it has moved from animals to humans through contact or consumption of animals from the identified live animal market.

“It has become clear that the poorly regulated and often inhumane conditions under which animals are slaughtered for human consumption in live animal markets can create ideal conditions for the spread of zoonotic diseases, such as COVID-19”, a said Hastings.

Legislators have stressed the need to raise the alarm now on the urgent need for expanded regulation, enhanced enforcement or the closure of these markets.

According to Buchanan, the live animal markets had been an incubator of deadly infections like COVID-19.

“These markets are unsanitary and inhuman and have resulted in the deaths of countless animals and humans,” said Buchanan. “They should be closed immediately to avoid the next epidemic of a deadly virus.”

In an accompanying statement, Lisa Vanderpump, founder of The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, said there is a need to address the cause of this devastating pandemic.

“Any lack of action in tackling the source of this pandemic will present a danger to our future and the threat that similar diseases will not only recur but develop,” she said.
