10:07 am
i've been reading the news about this virus i wonder is it the same type of bat that we use i've never worried about disease until now maybe it has to do with how we prepare the meat. the trade of live wild animals for food medicine clothing and more has gone on for years but as the world grapples with the outbreak of coma 19 the risk it poses to public health is now under scrutiny it's believed the virus most likely emerged from this market in ruhani probably involving bats but also possibly other animals such as penguins. the market in rouhani is still closed and the beijing government has issued a temporary ban on similar live wildlife markets elsewhere in china but there are many similar markets around asia trading wild animals like this one in indonesia north the way sea province bats snakes and other wildlife as well as dogs and cats are all sold here alive in cages stacked on top of each other. when you have
10:08 am
different animals in such close contact it is possible for cross species infections to happen other diseases can also be transferred between species and then infect a human ending the exotic wildlife trade completely is almost impossible many people's livelihoods depend on it and the trade goes on in many corners of the world animal rights activists say wildlife conservation isn't just about saving animals lives but humans too. people have exploited nature and wildlife we catch them from spaces where they should be free when you combine that with poor hygiene markets it is a risk a lot is still unknown about this virus and exactly how it began but what is clear is that this isn't just a global health crisis but an environmental one to jessica washington to syria jakarta now a suburb of the philippine capital is mass testing residence for private 19 as

10:10 am
now a lot of local government officials have been calling for mass testing but this is not possible because it's not just the ships that are in need it but also the available laboratories that can process these tests so today according to the city being hope to be able to start a model which means that they will be able to test those who are believed to be persons under investigations or those who are in contact with positive cases and persons undermining torrie frontline workers volunteers those working on the ground providing the basic necessities at this point they started to date and it's going to continue up until the end of april when lockdown supportively and or what they call enhanced community quarantine across the entire region. and i mean as you say that lockdown is still in place and president a tete a has been criticized in broad 75 as heavy handed approach as shoot to kill policy if people are violating that lock down how is his response being hated her. well you know there have been many discussions about social distancing but in many many
