President says Pakistan shows solidarity with China over coronavirus outbreak

Earlier on MArch 24, China put a strict ban on eating and farming of wild animals in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic which appears to have originated from a Wuhan’s wildlife market Hubei, China.

COVID-19 and the SARS virus of 2003 both are from the coronavirus family, and both most likely started in wet markets.

Wet market is a market selling live meat, fish where people and live and dead animals including dogs, chickens, pigs, snakes, civets, and more  come into constant close contact due to which zoonotic diseases can easily transmit from animals to humans.
