Call to end deadly live-animal markets around the globe

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 many more people are aware of wet markets, which sell live and dead animals for human consumption. The markets are the perfect breeding ground for the spread of diseases such as coronaviruses, swine flu and ebola. They allow viruses not only to spread from animal to animal but also from animal to human. These markets are without doubt contributing to the spread of disease as well as being incredibly inhumane, causing pain and suffering to thousands of animals.
