Farrar said: “We want to keep a calm, moderated approach, but we need to take this incredibly seriously”. Farfer, who says he’s “very concerned” about the situation, also warned against thinking of it as a China-only problem. “This will become a global issue. This isn’t just a China issue, it’s going to affect us all.”
34 has been in touch via FB. She's been really, really ill. She's had a bad cough and chest pains and she didn't tell me, just soldiered on alone, solo, probably with the CH on low, suffering all by herself and the ABs the doctor gave her didn't touch it so she went back on Monday, feels no better and now she's got a fever and isn't responding to my FB messages so for all I know she could be a sweat stain on the sofa with no one to mop her up when she should be here so I can look after her and I can't ring her because our phone is kaput, it had a nervous breakdown today for some unknown reason!
A seafood market in Wuhan, China is thought to be the source of the new coronavirus outbreak.
The Chinese market at the center of the deadly coronavirus outbreak sold live animals — including wolf pups, foxes, rats and peacocks — to eat, according to a new report. The wild animals were among 112 items that were peddled at the Huanan Seafood Market in the central city of Wuhan, Agence France-Press reported.
Other wildlife sold at the market, which has since been shuttered, included crocodiles, giant salamanders, snakes, porcupines and camel meat.
“Freshly slaughtered, frozen and delivered to your door,” said the price list for the vendor, “Wild Game Animal Husbandry for the Masses.”
The disturbing list circulated widely on China’s internet but could not be independently verified by AFP.
China has gone into lockdown. Fouteen cities are contained, the Lunar New Year celebrations are cancelled, part of the Great Wall and Shanghai Disneyland is shut down on the eve of the Lunar New Year as authorities scramble to shut tourist attractions and public transport systems in a bid to stop the spread of the outbreak.
