Current news

Many people living in an emerging infectious disease hotspot often do not fully understand the health threats linked to living in a wildlife-rich area, according to a new study. Around 60 percent of all emerging infectious diseases can transfer across human and animal lines, which is known as zoonosis. A person’s risk of catching a zoonotic disease increases in situations where humans regularly interact with wildlife, and these interactions are on the rise as climate change forces humans further into wild habitats in search of resources.
