China reopens market but vendors are still selling bats and other exotic animals - reports say

As China is slowly recovering from the nightmare of pandemic, public markets are reopening now to recover. However, China's wet markets resumed - selling bats and scorpions for traditional medicine are still available. 

Things seem to be going back to normal with rabbits, pangolins, dogs and others exotic animals displayed for sale. 

While some other countries continues to struggle with the coronavirus, the move seems might end up again to thesame history.

Since outbreak became pandemic, scientists say it is likely that bats either infected other market animals or humans directly. Photos have emerged taken by a Dailymail correspondent last March 28, shows us that markets in Guilin and Dongguan are again back to business, selling different kinds of animals for human consumption.

"Everyone here believes the outbreak is over and there's nothing to worry about any more. It's just a foreign problem now as far as they are concerned," said by the unknown correspondent.

"The only difference is that security guards try to stop anyone taking pictures which would never have happened before," the correspondent further described.
The first coronavirus cases was traced in Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan China, believed to be the epicentre of coronavirus. 

Several medical experts and animal rights activists have called for a ban of selling bats and other exotic animals on China's wet markets, but it seems history repeats itself.
