Eating Bats and Pangolins Banned in Gabon as a Result of Coronavirus Pandemic

Eating and selling bat and pangolin meat has been banned by officials in Gabon. The decision was made over fears related to the global coronavirus pandemic, which is thought to stem from wild animal meat sold at a market in Wuhan, China.

“Gabon has signed a law to stop trade in bats and pangolins as a precaution,” Lee White, Minister of Forests, Oceans, Environment and Climate Change, Gabonese Republic, tweeted last Friday.
