Vietnam bans wildlife imports, markets amid new health fears

Vietnam announced that it was banning wildlife imports and would close wildlife markets in response to renewed concerns about the threat from diseases that can jump from animals to humans, such as the virus that causes COVID-19.

It also merits tougher penalties for crimes involving the trade in wildlife.
