Coronavirus:Russia President Vladimir Putin Defends WHO Against U.S Donald Trump Criticism.

Russia has defended the World Health Organisation (WHO) against recent criticism by U.S. President Donald Trump, arguing that the UN body is contributing significantly to the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Last week, Trump said the WHO “really blew” its response to the virus by focusing too much on China and giving the U.S. bad advice at the beginning of the outbreak.

In a tweet, he also said Washington would take a “good look” at its WHO funding.

The WHO “is now doing a lot to curb the pandemic,” Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told state television on Saturday, according to the TASS news agency.

He said Kremlin also wants the WHO to become more effective, but that for such to happen, states would have to do more to support the global health organisation.

On Friday, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas also praised the “indispensable” role the WHO was playing.

Should Washington end its WHO contributions, Peskov expressed hope that it would not weaken the global body.

He also said he hoped the U.S. would overcome the coronavirus crisis.

COVID_19:China Ban The Consumption Of Cats, Earthworm, Dogs And Many Other Pets As A Measure To Curtail Coronavirus In The Country.

Shenzhen, a city in southeastern China, has become the first city in the country to ban the consumption of pets, such as cats and dogs, CNN has reported.

The law is expected to take from effect May 1.

Shenzhen authorities announced this week that from then on, it will be prohibited to eat state-protected wild animals and other terrestrial wild animals, as well as captive-bred and farmed terrestrial wild species, CNN said.

Animals that can be consumed will include pig, cattle, sheep, donkey, rabbit, chicken, duck, goose, pigeon, quail, as well as aquatic animals which are not banned by other laws or regulations.

“If convicted, they will be subjected to a fine of 30 times of the wild animal’s value, if the animal is above the value of 10,000CNY [$1400],” CNN reported, quoting Chinese authorities.

There is a suspicion among some scientists that the COVID-19 currently ravaging the world originated from the consumption of wild animals. While it is unclear which animal transferred the virus to humans, bats, snakes and pangolins have all been suggested.
