China is slaughtering pets of Covid-19 patients under draconian new law. As per officials, this is all about preventing virus infection. But, animal lovers in the country do not agree to it and consider it an “inhumane” rule. The idea was slammed by experts as there is lack of any such evidence that supports role of viral transmission by pets.
Chengdu, a Chengdu resident claimed that her pets were moved from home to quarantine and killed while she was in quarantine.
The killers told press that there is lack of treatment options for infected animals and death was the only option left for these pets. If these infected pets are left untreated, they would continue to leave traces of virus.
One worker told Beijing News: “There is probably no professional medical treatment for animals infected with the novel coronavirus.”
This idea was slammed by experts as there is lack of any such evidence that supports role of viral transmission by pets.
A virology professor, Rachael Tarlinton, at the University of Nottingham, said:
“It doesn’t seem very realistic that the cats would contaminate the environment so badly that they would be a risk for their owner to re-contract COVID.”
She also thinks that surface is not the medium to spread virus. Animal lovers consider this new rule as “overkill” policy.
One person said on Weibo: “I firmly disagree with this approach! To put it bluntly, it’s a crude, simplistic and lazy form of management, just in order to dodge responsibility.”
The pet owner told South China Morning Post: “If I happen to catch COVID-19, what if my cat starves to death or gets killed while I’m in quarantine?
“There’s no medical evidence or legal support for killing these companion animals, it’s extremely inhumane.
“Currently there’s no law protecting companion animals in China, so there’s not much room to fight for our pets, and their deaths can only act as a cautionary tale for owners to be more careful from now on.”
People are against it and they are circulating posts on social media suggesting pet owners videotape killings and call out authorities if it is necessary.
One social media message reads: “Please don’t stop advocating, because if you don’t speak out, maybe it’s your furry babies that will die next.”
Zero-tolerance strategy to Covid-19 of China means local governments contract tracing, use mass testing and impose partial lockdowns to control the viral spread.
The stuff you’ve seen on social media barely scratches the surface. Dr Anthony Fauci has been abusing animals for 40 years.
According to documents obtained using the Freedom of Information Act, Dr Fauci spent $424,000 to commission experiments where dogs were bitten to death by flies.
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s agency, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has also been conducting a series of secret experiments that grafted the scalps of aborted fetuses onto living mice and rats.
Almost $400,000 have been spent on these experiments. These studies were meant to investigate the tendency of human skin to develop infections.
Dr Fauci also funded Wuhan virus experiments which were prohibited by the US government for being dangerous. Dr. Fauci gave $3.7 million to the Wuhan laboratory where suspicious experiments were conducted.
