(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have studied a number of factors that contribute to the spread of certain viruses, and also analyzed the situation in different countries. As a result, a map of potentially dangerous places was created.
The mapping was carried out by an international team of researchers. She examined the environmental, social and economic factors that directly influence the spread of disease. As it turned out, the greatest risk of infection is in Africa, southern Asia, Southeast Asia and Latin America.
In these regions of the world, frequent contact with wildlife intersects with an underdeveloped healthcare system. Plus, the fact of overpopulation of cities negatively affects.
Scientists have noted that even high-income countries can also be the epicenter of disease. In some areas, the anthropogenic factor is strongly expressed, which affects the wildlife.
Countries where the risk of infection is extremely high need to do a lot of work to conserve flora and fauna, improve livestock and health systems. It is also imperative to strictly monitor all travelers at the airports.
The number of pandemics that could affect humanity is on the rise. This is due, first of all, to the negative impact on nature. Scientists have also recently announced the release of dangerous viruses and bacteria from permafrost that is melting. Microorganisms have been mothballed for millennia and have survived. Some diseases are not vulnerable to antibiotics, so there are no effective drugs for treatment. Sooner or later, the world will face a new pandemic, which can be many times more deadly.
