在建议相一致野生动物市场和COVID-19, the Humane Society International report released earlier this week, and our own messaging on the pandemic, Senators Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Representatives Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) and Michael McCaul (R-Texas) and more than sixty of their colleagues have发出的紧急信从全球三大医疗机构寻求采取行动。在他们的世界卫生组织总干事沟通，世界动物卫生组织和联合国粮食与农业组织，他们要求三组“，采取向全球关闭积极的行动活的野生动物市场的下跌而对不用于保护目的的活野生动物国际贸易的禁令。”这是多次调用由民选官员为全球行动，以减少未来大流行的风险之一。
In野生动物市场和COVID-19, our colleagues urged governments around the world at all levels to ban or severely limit all trade, transport and consumption of wildlife, immediately. The Humane Society of the United States, the Humane Society Legislative Fund and Humane Society International have long pointed to wildlife markets and related trade as a dangerous vector for transmission of zoonotic diseases. We’ve stated the case plainly ourselves. We must close wildlife markets selling wild animals, particularly mammals and birds, in every nation, and we must halt the import, export and internal transport of live wildlife or wildlife meat intended for sale in such markets or in other contexts, whether the animals were captured in the wild or farmed. It’s not just for the animals’ sake; it’s for our own.
