The panic over covid led to governments making shocking plans.
A newly revealed plan would have led to millions of pets being killed.
Leftists actually considered killing all cats for this insane covid reason.
At the beginning of covid, the British government reportedly considered killing all 11,000,000 cats in Britain, a former minister has revealed.
James Bethell, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Innovation at the Department of Health in 2020 and 2021 said killing all cats was briefly talked about amid fears the animals were spreading Covid.
“What we shouldn’t forget is how little we understood about this disease,” he told Channel 4 News.
“There was a moment we were very unclear about whether domestic pets could transmit the disease,” he added, noting. “In fact, there was an idea at one moment that we might have to ask the public to exterminate all the cats in Britain.”
“Can you imagine what would have happened if we had wanted to do that?” the former health minister remarked.
“And yet, for a moment there was a bit of evidence around that so that had to be investigated and closed down.” Bethell concluded.
While the idea of killing millions of cat seems insane it’s not more insane than the restrictions that were put in place, keeping people trapped in their homes for months, closing down businesses for years, shutting down schools, forced quarantines for travelers and vaccine passports.
In China they’ve actually put down pets due to the Communist Party’s “zero-COVID” strategy.
Beijing News published a report last September detailing government authorities in the Chinese city of Harbin euthanized three pet cats against their owner’s wishes.
A woman tested positive for covid and local health officials ordered the woman to leave her apartment that same day and enter a state hospital for a mandatory self-isolation period.
“Shortly after, a community worker carried out tests on the cats and all three cats tested positive for the virus twice, prompting authorities to take action,” the Independent relayed on Thursday, citing a September 28 report by the state-backed Beijing News site.
“Despite appeals from the cat owner, the three cats were put to sleep in what has been viewed as a harsh and extreme measure by Chinese authorities to control the disease spread,” the newspaper revealed.
“The cats would have continued to leave viral traces in the room,” an unnamed community worker told Beijing News.
“There is probably no professional medical treatment for animals infected with the novel coronavirus,” the worker said.
“So far, in the whole pandemic, there have been no confirmed reports of cat to human infection,” Vanessa Barrs, a professor at City University of Hong Kong specializing in animal health and disease, told Reuters.
