A video going viral on social media platforms shows a man-eating a live baby mouse after dipping it in the sauce. The clip shows the man sitting in front of a plate with baby mice in it. He can be seen using chopsticks to pick it up and then dips it in yellow sauce and eats it. The video has not only been termed disgusting but also worrying. The video comes amidst the panic relating to the deadly Coronavirus that is believed to have originated in China's Wuhan city. The video is said to have been recorded from a seafood market selling snakes, bats, poultry and other farm animals.

In this civilized society, we eat newborn mouse Scared me intolerable. #chinazi #WuhanCoronavirus" The dish is known as 'Three Squeaks' as the mouse squeaks thrice, once when it is picked up by using chopsticks, second when it is dipped in the sauce and third when it dies. Although the dish is banned in China it is widely available in restaurants. Coronavirus Outbreak: China Deploys 450 Military Medical Staff at Virus Epicentre Wuhan as Death Toll Jumps to 41.
