first_imgAgus went on to say that the ministry would create a list of the live animals that would be barred from being imported in the regulation, among which he said were reptiles such as “snakes and turtles”.Read also: Indonesia temporarily halts live animal cargoes from China, the rest business as usualLive reptiles made up the majority of 19.4 tons of live animal imports from China to Indonesia last year, according to Statistics Indonesia (BPS).BPS data show that Indonesia imported 18.2 tons of live reptiles — including snakes and turtles — worth nearly US$216,000, dominating the total of live animal imports valued at $314,295 from China in 2019. The government will soon suspend live animal imports from China, including snakes and turtles, amid concerns about the deadly coronavirus spreading to Indonesia.Trade Minister Agus Suparmanto said on Wednesday that the ministry was in the process of preparing the regulation to suspend the live animal trade between Indonesia and China, as the virus was believed to have originated among wild animals.“We are preparing the ministerial regulation in accordance with the decision made in the meeting,” he said, referring to a meeting with President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo at the State Palace. Other than importing live reptiles, Indonesia also imported 1.2 tons of live mammals worth $98,327 last year.Agus said the government would follow the temporary import ban with monthly evaluations. “If the conditions return to normal, we will [allow imports],” he said.Read also: ‘Paniki’ panic: Manado restaurants take bat stew off menu – for nowExperts have previously warned Indonesia to apply stronger measures against the cross-border wildlife trade especially as scientists believe that the novel coronavirus may have originated in wild animals such as bats and snakes.Chinese authorities have linked a market selling wild animals in the city of Wuhan to the coronavirus, which as of Thursday had killed 563 people and infected more than 28,000 people on the mainland and spread to more than 20 countries, AFP reported.In light of the outbreak, Tomohon administration in North Sulawesi has also instructed sellers at “extreme” animal markets in the region to stop selling bats and snakes famously known as local delicacies in the region.“We’ve met with the sellers to tell them about the dangers of the coronavirus and instructed them to stop selling bats and snakes,” Tomohon Health Agency head Isye Liuw said on Thursday as quoted by tempo.co.She added that the sellers were also instructed to stop selling other wild animals such as wild boars, cats, dogs and mice in the market, but still permitted the sales of pigs.

first_img“What the boys did so far is exceptional but it is not over,” said Klopp.”We did not expect the number of games we won. It was never easy and it will never be easy, so now let’s carry on.”Klopp has long been an advocate of a winter break amid the gruelling English campaign to give his players a chance to rest and recuperate.But a two-week break earlier this month appears to have disrupted the Reds’ rhythm. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insisted the title is not won yet after his side were beaten for the first time in 45 games in the Premier League as Watford thrashed the European champions 3-0 on Saturday.Klopp’s men still enjoy a 22-point lead at the top of the table and need a maximum of four wins from their remaining 10 games to secure a first league title for 30 years.However, defeat at Vicarage Road continues a downturn in form as they sneaked past relegation-threatened Norwich and West Ham in their two previous league games and lost the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie to Atletico Madrid. “Shape, form is not something we can take for granted. We fought against each every feeling in the body. We fought against everything and that’s why we have that amount of points,” added Klopp.”The biggest surprise for me is that Watford is fighting to stay in the league. Now is the moment when everybody is fighting like crazy.”We don’t think it is the biggest catastrophe in world football. We feel the defeat really and now we have the chance to show the reaction again.”Ismaila Sarr was the star for Watford as the Senegalese struck twice in six minutes at the start of the second half and then teed up Troy Deeney to add a third.The comprehensive scoreline had the added bonus of edging Watford out of the relegation zone by one goal ahead of Bournemouth.However, after slipping back into the bottom three following a fine start to his reign, Hornets’ boss Nigel Pearson is all too aware of the importance of backing up a famous win for the remainder of the season.”It’s such an important win for us. But it is one win,” said Pearson.”They are such an outstanding side, we had to get our performance right and I thought we thoroughly deserved the win.”We threatened with the ball and defended with discipline, energy and commitment. That’s been the message from day one.”It’s in our own hands, and we have to deliver that performance week in, week out.”Topics :last_img read more
