For fear of coronavirus. Communities around China order residents to get rid of their pets – or risk having them CULLED- for fear that the animals may become infected with the coronavirus. One Hebei village urged households to “treat” their pets within five days, another Shaanxi Committee urged locals to get rid of their pets immediately.
This sad and painful news comes a day after a top Chinese professional suggested that a new virus would also infect pets, leading to fears that it would further spread the virus. The number of pets to be slaughtered is estimated at millions. I just can’t imagine the owners of grief facing it, but since there is no cure or vaccine visible, it has to be done, no other way.
A Chinese expert, who has urged people to watch their pets, says pets can get a mysterious new virus that has killed nearly 200 people.
Li Lanjuan, an epidemiologist and member of a group gathered in China to respond to the new coronavirus, argued that the bug, called 2019-nCoV, could be transmitted from mammal to mammal. He did not say if there were any infected pets.
This is shocking and madness
