Bats, Scorpions, dogs, cats, and rabbits are still being sold in Chinese markets despite the fact that the world is trying its best to cope up with the coronavirus pandemic.
As Beijing celebrated the victory over the coronavirus, markets were reopened and were reported to be selling wild animals.
China celebrated its victory over the novel coronavirus by reopening squalid meat markets, which are the type of markets that started the global pandemic 3 months ago.
The government of China is likely to raise its hygiene standards to prevent a future outbreak.
The pandemic, which begun from Wuhan, China, has forced countries all over the world to go into lockdown, a precautionary measure that will allow the countries to stop further spread of the deadly virus.
As the country allowed markets to be open again, billboards advertising bats, scorpions, and other animals were spotted.
The scenes come after China lifted its nationwide lockdown and encouraged people to go back to their normal daily life so they can boost their economy again.
Official numbers of the country indicated that there are no new infections.
A market in Guilin was packed with shoppers yesterday.
The market reportedly sold fresh dogs, cats, and other types of meats.
A correspondent, who captured the images for The Mail, said, “Everyone here believes the outbreak is over and there’s nothing to worry about any more. It’s just a foreign problem now as far as they are concerned.”
The correspondent added, “The markets have gone back to operating in exactly the same way as they did before coronavirus.”
The correspondent continued, “The only difference is that security guards try to stop anyone taking pictures which would never have happened before.”
