ETERNAL TREBLINKA: Chinese residents ordered to KILL their ‘pets’ to avoid spreading Coronavirus

One village urged all households to 'deal with' their pets within 5 days, otherwise officials would 'handle' them. It is believed the number of 'pets' at risk is in excess of 10,000.

WESLEY HUDSON: ‘Chinese residents have reportedly been warned to ‘get rid of their pets’ or face having them KILLED over concerns they could contract Coronavirus… The horror decree comes amid fears animals could also catch the deadly coronavirus, which has killed 213 people in less than three weeks. Residential committees, village officials and companies in various provinces and municipalities across China were ordered by their superiors to issue the strict instructions for locals to tackle the epidemic.

One village in Hebei urged all households to “deal with” their pets within five days, otherwise officials would “handle” them. It is believed the number of pets at risk is in excess of 10,000. Another residential committee in Shaanxi instructed people to “consider the overall situation” and dispose of their cats and dogs immediately…

At the ground zero of the virus outbreak in Wuhan, one neighbourhood banned residents from letting their cats, dogs or livestock from leaving their homes. A flyer posted in the community warned residents if local officials saw any animals then they would catch, kill and bury them on the spot.

One residential complex in Shanghai has forbidden its residents from feeding stray animals to “enforce the control and prevention of the epidemic”… The authorities also banned residents from flying their pigeons and demanded all stray or wild pigeons be culled as the outbreak accelerated…

It came as China’s top expert for infectious diseases warned pets would also need to be quarantined should they be exposed to coronavirus patients… However, the World Health Organisation claimed it has not seen any evidence of the virus being passed onto cats or dogs.

According to animal welfare organisation Humane Society International similar demands have appeared across China in Beijing, Tianjin, Shandong, Heilongjiang, Hebei, Wuhan, Shanxi and Shanghai. The charity’s China Policy Specialist, Dr Peter J. Li, said: “This is not the right approach for local authorities in China to deal with the national crisis that can be traced to China’s out-of-control wildlife trade. Companion animals did not contribute to the outbreak of SARS in 2002-2003. They do not have anything to do with the Wuhan epidemic”.’  SOURCE…
