Rapid destruction of forests will unleash more pandemics: experts

Aug 31, 2020 11:45 IST

If deforestation and the loss of biodiversity continue at the current rate, we should be prepared for deadlier new pandemics, experts believe.

A group of scientists will warn world leaders in this regard at a UN summit to be held in New York next month. The scientists believe there is a clear link between environmental destruction and the emergence of deadly diseases like Covid-19.

There is a perfect spill over of diseases from wildlife to humans as animals continue to get exploited, farming land expands and deforestation as well as building of mines continues.
