Dr. Fauci: It ‘Boggles My Mind’ That China’s Wet Markets Aren’t Shut Down

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told “Fox & Friends” Friday that he’s ‘mind boggled’ that the wet markets responsible for some of the world’s most infectious viruses selling exotic animals for food in China remain open.

“I have no authority to call for anything, but I can certainly tell you how I feel. I think they should shut down those things right away,” Fauci said.

He added, “It just boggles my mind how we have so many diseases that emanate out of that unusual human-animal interface that we don’t just shut it down. I don’t know what else has to happen to get us to appreciate that.”

Many medical experts, including the CDC, argue that the coronavirus may have come from a wet market in Wuhan, China, where people were eating bats and other exotic animals. China, however, recently reopened the wet markets in the country, according to reports.

The United States Army recorded and released unnerving video of a close encounter with a Chinese jet over the South China Sea. The Chinese military plane came “dangerously” close to the U.S. military aircraft in the international airspace last week, the U.S. military announced on Thursday.

The Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM), the command responsible for overseeing U.S. operations in the area, said in a statement that the encounter occurred on December 21, during which a Chinese Navy J-11 fighter jet flew within 10 feet (3 meters) of a U.S. Air Force RC-135, a reconnaissance plane with about 30 people on board.

According to a U.S. military spokesperson, the Chinese jet came within 10 feet of the airplane’s wing, but 20 feet from its nose, causing the U.S. aircraft to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision.
