Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- "We can't risk another pandemic. All animal markets should be closed," ISAR, The International Society for Animal Rights, about the wet markets, which are cited as the starting point of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, said.
ISAR emphasize that despite the bans in China, wet markets continue in other Asian countries such as Indonesia and Thailand.
Sharing images of two markets in Bangkok and Tomohon cities, the association said that attention should be paid to the animals sold and hygiene conditions.
The images, which were shared on April 8 and taken at Khlong Toei market and Tomohon market, show many dead animals such as dogs, snakes and frogs, as well as live cats and chickens in cages.
The Chinese government announced that wet markets were banned in the country after the coronavirus was first detected at a wet market in Wuhan.
