US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Ecologist David Lapol from Brazil some time ago made a not entirely comforting forecast about where exactly the next viral pandemic might come from. He is confident that the rainforest located in the Amazon will become the point of spread of the next dangerous virus for humanity.
It is worth noting that at the moment, there is an active urbanization of the wild regions of our planet. Because of this, dangerous diseases can begin to spread, which will be easily transmitted from animals to humans and then between people.
The ecologist added that the last few years of his life he devoted to the study of how human activities can affect the state of tropical forests. Today in the Amazon you can observe a huge number of irreversible processes.
The specialist also added that the Amazon contains a lot of dangerous viruses, so people should stay as far away from this area and not try their luck.
It is worth paying attention to the fact that this is not the first specialist who warns mankind that the forests of the Amazon can disappear. The speed of deforestation in this region of the planet is gradually increasing. For example, last year alone, tree felling increased by about 85%.
This has never been seen before. In 2019, people cut down about 10 thousand square kilometers of forests in the tropical zone of the Earth.
If the feeling is not stopped, then this will lead to a variety of problems and the matter is not only about viruses. The number of diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans will also increase several times. In addition, deforestation will adversely affect the climate of the planet and, in general, the future of all mankind.
