PETA Wants WHO Chief Who Pushes Chinese Propaganda To Pester China Into Nixing Wuhan’s Wet Markets


People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) asked the World Health Organization official who is running Chinese propaganda on coronavirus to pressure China into ending so-called wet markets.

A future pandemic of coronavirus’s size is inevitable if China and other Asian countries continue selling wild and domesticated animals in unsanitary conditions, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk wrote in a March 25 letter to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

“If we’re to prevent future pandemics, we must heed the warning of top coronavirus researchers like Dr. Danielle Anderson, scientific director of the Duke-NUS Medical School, and cut them off at the source,” Newkirk wrote in the memo to Tedros, who won his post in 2017 after China backed him.

Newkirk added: “We urge the WHO to call for the closure of all live-animal meat markets worldwide to prevent the next outbreak.”

PETA’s motto is “animals are not ours to eat,” and the group’s activists typically bemoan what they consider the human-supremacist worldview.

Tedros, for his part, effusively praises China for what he considers a transparent response to the coronavirus, or COVID-19, which has killed more than 30,000 people worldwide and caused governments to send economies to a screeching halt.

In reality, Chinese censors reportedly worked to suppress information about the virus as health professionals in China spread their concern on an app called WeChat. They even punished health officials who discretely warned superiors before it became a pandemic. The WHO jumped into action.
