NOT ENOUGH TO PREVENT NEW AND STRANGE VIRUSES TO SURFACE
Excellent news indeed that China is banning or already started to ban wild animals consumption by people in China and hopefully this will be followed thru to all other countries. Wherever animals ( other than humans ) were hunted, killed and eaten, this act must all be banned by the International Communities of all nations on Earth.
However, inside China, this isn't a good news for dog lovers and China itself because majority of so-called dog lovers are NOT true lovers of dogs and cats ( "pets" ). They treat pets with no respect and they do not learn how to enjoy with pets by cleaning them all properly and providing nutritious pet foods.
Most horrible things are they do NOT walk their pets with proper care to ensure their pets' droppings are picked up and trashed in proper bins. Although some would pick up with paper tissues and/or plastic bags but then these guys would simply find a quiet spot to dump them. This act is a sort of virus population growth of all kinds ( experienced and unknowns such as SARs, COVID-19,…more … ).
The other disturbing act is allowing their pets to bark loudly across balconies. China is made up of more than 1.4 billions head counts. Practically all urban lives are housed in multi-high apartments / flats. It is something that the Chinese authorities have to think deeply as COVID-19 is killing and infecting like HELL has broken loose, globally !
On top of this, so-called pet lovers aren't walking pets on streets and busy parks with compatible collars and leashes on. Dog victims have been known to be severe and fatalities occurred as often seen and reported globally.
Chinese authorities must do their jobs properly as well by strictly enforcing rules and regulations on top of strict “spying” on human cum pet behaviors on cameras ( brave enough to challenge bullshitters of Human Rights Activists whilst millions are infected by viruses and other diseases ?) . If anyone breaks the rules and regulations as stipulated officially, then authorities have the right to confiscate the pets as well as imposing fines of no less than CnY5000.00 per offense; and aggregate upward on more similar offense.
