New Delhi : People across the world and India have been battling severe coronavirus for a long time. This year, due to the Corona epidemic, a lot of bad news has already come that in the meantime, a report from leading experts is again frightening. These reports state that the world may experience epidemics more often in the future, that some of these will be fatal than the coronavirus, and will be expensive to control.
These global reports on biodiversity and epidemics were written by 22 leading experts from around the world, and were released on Thursday. This is the result of a workshop convened by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) that focuses on the relationship between nature’s degradation and the growing epidemic risks.
According to the report’s warning, those who believe that corona is the only deadly virus should know that there are 540,000 – 850,000 unknown viruses in nature that can infect people. Interestingly, the report comes three days after the outbreak of the Myro virus disease in French Guiana by the World Health Organization (WHO). This virus also spreads through mosquitoes, with symptoms similar to dengue.
Most (70%) of almost all known epidemics such as Ebola, Zika, Nipah encephalitis, and influenza, HIV / AIDS, Covid-19 are germs of animal disease origin. The IPBES report states that these germs are spread due to contact between wildlife, animals and people. Experts agreed that it is possible to avoid the epidemic era, but from the right response to prevention is necessary.
The report stated “Covid-19 is at least the sixth global health epidemic since the Great Influenza pandemic of 1918, and although influenza originated in animal microbes, like all pandemics, it began entirely with human activity. Mammalian fauna and birds currently have an estimated 1.7 million unknown viruses present.”
