Climate change could spark the next pandemic due to wild animals' relocation

May 26, 2022

A study published in the journal Nature and funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation suggests that as climate changes over time, wild animals will relocate to new locations and habitats, creating the seed for "a viral jump to hums that could lead to the next pandemic".

"The link between climate change and viral transmission is described by an international research team led by scientists at Georgetown University and published in Nature

"The authors say the solution is to pair wildlife disease surveillance with real-time studies of environmental change. "
