The emergence of the SARS-CoV-2 at the end of 2019 and the vast global public health and socio-economic impacts allow us to draw some broad lessons about the effective management of zoonoses. SARS-CoV-2 is not the first known to have an animal origin. Ebola, SARS, the Zika virus, and bird flu all came to people by way of animals. Sixty percent of known infectious diseases in humans and seventy-five percent of all emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic, according to a new report published by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).
Zoonoses are complex; responsibility for their prevention and control falls across several sectors – human and animal health, environment, trade, and commerce. Approaches to dealing with these diseases to date have been inadequately coordinated across these multiple dimensions.
In this context, the session “Lessons from Covid-19: the perspective of animal science” organized by the VANJ aims to unite experts from multiple disciplines—public health, animal health, and the environment —to come up with effective strategies and policy responses to prevent a future zoonotic outbreak from happening.
