At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UK government reportedly considered killing all the country’s cats. At least that’s what former minister James Bethel said in an interview with the News Channel 4 News.

Between 2020 and 2021, Bethel, who led NHS Test and Trace, the UK Health Security Agency’s program for Covid-19 control, said: “There was a time when we didn’t know if domestic animals could transmit the disease.”

According to the former minister, the lack of information about the coronavirus at the time led many officials to consider dire ideas to deal with the situation.

“There was an idea at one point to ask the public to cull all the cats in Britain,” he added. “Can you imagine what would have happened if we had done that?”

Fortunately, there was no evidence that this type of transfer could occur, and after further investigations, the potentially disastrous move was formally ruled out.
