Sen. McSally's Call To Shut Down "Wet Markets" In China Echoed Today By Dr. Fauci (ARIZONA'S POLITICAL SHORTS)

12:30pm: In her telephonic town hall yesterday, Arizona Senator Martha McSally emphatically told listeners that China should not be allowed to re-open their "wet markets". Such a location is where the current pandemic is believed to have started.

Today, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, made that call loud and clear. "It boggles my mind how when we have so many diseases that emanate out of that unusual human-animal interface, that we don't just shut it down. I don't know what else has to happen to get us to appreciate that."

McSally did indicate in the town hall that she had been on a conference call with Dr. Fauci earlier in the day. And, the subject of the wet markets was raised by fellow Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Fauci reportedly called it a "crazy decision" to reopen them.

The wet markets are only one aspect of the pandemic response that Senator McSally has been devoting some of her attention to; in addition to the Arizona issues and the latest Congressional rescue package, she also has set her sights on forcing China to forfeit $1T worth of U.S. Treasuries and calling for the diretor of the World Health Organization to resign for "parroting" and "praising" China.
