World Health Organization report on animal to human transmission

The World Health Organization (WHO) says that while climate change and drought have changed the way humans and animals look for food, animal diseases are now being transmitted to humans.

According to the World News Agency, Dr. Ryan Mike, Director of the Emergency Department of the World Health Organization, warned that the spread of diseases such as monkey pox and lassa fever has become common in the world and it could spread more rapidly.

He said that due to drought due to climate change, humans and animals are changing their behavior in other factors including search for food, due to which diseases found in animals are rapidly being transmitted to humans.

According to Dr. Ryan Mike, there is a growing tendency in society to increase the incidence of disease, which is alarming.

He cited the recent outbreak of a disease such as Lassa fever in other countries, which was actually a viral fever found in rats in the African region.

He said that in the past it used to take five years for the Ebola virus to spread to a limited extent but now it has been observed that if there is a gap of 5 months in the spread of a viral disease then it is considered lucky.

He also mentioned the Monkey Pox disease that has been found in monkeys in the past and said that the spread of the disease is definitely due to the pressure of climate change.

The statement from the head of the World Health Organization’s Emergency Situations Department comes at a time when up to 550 cases of monkey pox in 30 countries have been confirmed in the past.

The recent outbreak of Minky Pucks began in early May last year in the British state of England and spread to more than two dozen European countries, followed by cases of Minky Pucks in Asian countries, including the United States and the Middle East.

Monkey pox was also a disease of monkeys in the past, which was later restricted to humans only in the African region in 1980, but it has spread to other parts of the world where the disease did not exist in the past.

Lassa fever, a disease found inside rats in Africa, is spreading to other countries, and earlier this year, cases of viral lassa fever were reported in countries outside Africa.
