Dr. Seth Berkley, head epidemiologist for GAVI, has said that climate change and deforestation will only lead to more pandemics. As more forests are cut down, the disease-carrying insects and other animals that live there have to move and travel, sometimes to urban areas. They are also travelling to new locations now due to the warming of the planet. Viruses can also jump from species to species. Berkley notes that it is possible the coronavirus jumped from a bat to a livestock animal, and then to humans. “This shouldn’t have been a surprise. This is the third coronavirus that has jumped into humans. We had SARS in early 2002. We had MERS a number of years later, and now we have this virus,” he commented.
