Wuhan BANS eating wild animals: Five-year rule brought in after global coronavirus pandemic was linked to city’s wet markets

 

The government of China's Wuhan city has banned the eating of wild animal species, including those bred and raised by people, for five years. The file photo taken on January 17 shows the Huanan Seafood Whole Market, which is believed to be the origin of the coronavirus outbreak

 

  • New rules forbid the consumption of wildlife, including those bred by farms
  • Experts believe the coronavirus outbreak was caused by the practice in China
  • The virus likely jumped to humans from animals sold at a wet market in Wuhan 
  • The law also bans people from producing, processing and trading wild animals 
  • Beijing in February issued a temporary ban on the trading and eating of wildlife

 

Experts in China said in January that the virus had likely jumped onto humans from wild animals sold as food at a wet market in the city of 11million.

Apart from seafood, the market’s offerings included live wild animals, such as foxes, crocodiles, wolf puppies, giant salamanders, snakes, rats, peacocks, porcupines, koalas and game meats, according to a previous report .

The Chinese province of Hubei, of which Wuhan is the capital city, in March passed a law to ban the eating of wild animals completely, including those bred or raised by people.
