McSally Calls for End to China’s “Disgusting, Inhumane, and Dangerous” Wet Markets

Senator Martha McSally has called for an end to China’s wet markets, calling them “disgusting, inhumane, and dangerous.”

China’s wet markets are disgusting, inhumane, and dangerous, leaving humans exposed to an array of deadly diseases. Given the interconnectedness of today’s world, these markets not only pose a risk to Chinese citizens, but to people around the globe, including Americans.

I urge the U.S. to pressure the Chinese government into shutting down these unsafe markets.

U.S. Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) on Thursday called for the immediate banning of China’s wet markets following reports they have reopened despite being linked to the first cases of COVID-19 in the country’s Hubei province.

“China’s wet markets are disgusting, inhumane, and dangerous, leaving humans exposed to an array of deadly diseases,” McSally said. “Given the interconnectedness of today’s world, these markets not only pose a risk to Chinese citizens, but to people around the globe, including Americans.

The Chinese Communist Party has done enough damage to global health by covering up the severity of the coronavirus with the help of the World Health Organization, and now this? It’s unacceptable. I urge the U.S. to pressure the Chinese government into shutting down these unsafe markets.”

Background:

Sen. McSally on Wednesday called for World Health Organization (WHO) Director-GeneralDr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to resign immediately for helping the Chinese government cover-up the country’s failure to prevent the spread of coronavirus. She also urged the WHO to suspend China’s voting privileges.

The Senator’s call came on the heels of a report that the U.S. intelligence community concluded China has concealed the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in its country.
