Democrats and Republicans alike are coming together and supporting the call for completely shutting down China's wet markets after the coronavirus outbreak.
The mainstream narrative is that the coronavirus outbreak started in a wet market in Wuhan, China. While that theory may not be what actually happened, it's enough for Congress to call for the shut down of the wet markets because of how disgusting they are.
According to The Hill,
A group of more than 60 bipartisan lawmakers on Wednesday called for an immediate global ban on live wildlife markets and the international trade of live wildlife over their supposed links to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
In a letter spearheaded by Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) as well as Reps. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) and Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), the lawmakers urged leaders of the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Organization for Animal Health and the United Nations to make the move "to protect public health."
"It is clear that to protect human health, these close and sustained interactions with wildlife must stop," the lawmakers wrote, pointing to studies that have linked wet markets where humans interact with live and dead animals as "prime transmission locations" for deadly pathogens.
If you're not familiar with the wet markets, think like going to a butcher in the old days when the meat was hanging up in a cool area...except it's not in a cool area, it's outside, and there's blood on the ground...and animal feces because of the live animals there which can be killed as well.
Oh, and it's not just fish, beef, and pork there. You'll find things like baby alligators, snakes, bats, giant salamanders, dog meat, chicken heads, and so many more disturbing items.
You have live animals mixed in with the dead ones, therefore you have feces all over the place. You also have meat being exposed for long periods of time to the outdoor environment without proper refrigeration, therefore, allowing all kinds of bacteria to latch onto these meats.
I've even seen people cleaning animals like fish on the ground where people walk. So you have animals defecating on the ground, people walking through it, and then people cleaning animals on that ground.
Take a look at this video and it will show you exactly what one of these markets looks like and you'll understand why they want them to be shut down.
