A city in China ordered all indoor pets in one neighborhood to be killed if their owners had COVID-19.

The state-run China News Service reported on Wednesday that the Anci District of Langfang city ordered the “complete culling of indoor animals” belonging to COVID-19 patients, according to Insider.

In order to ensure the safety of positive patients returning home, after communicating with the Langfang City Center for Disease Control and Prevention, it is necessary to comprehensively and thoroughly kill the animals domesticated by positive patients as soon as possible, the order read, as reported by Fortune.

The killing stopped Wednesday evening following pushback from citizens, a Langfang Center for Disease Control and Prevention staff member said. It is unclear how many pets were slain.

As of last week, an estimated 50 million people in China have been placed in lockdown throughout the country due to the latest wave of COVID-19.
