Preventing the next pandemic

Preventing the next pandemic

The UN Environment Programme has published a vital report: Preventing the next Pandemic, Zoonotic diseases and how to break the chain of transmission. The findings outline seven major human-mediated factors that will be most likely to result in the next pandemic including: increasing demand for animal protein, unsustainable  agricultural intensification, exploitation of wildlife, travel and transport, accelerated urbanisation, changes in food supply chains and climate change. We take a closer look at four of these factors that are central to what we do here at TYME.
