We are still reeling from the arrival of the virus COVID-19. COVID is the latest, and most catastrophic, in a long list of pathogens that have appeared from nowhere, to thump human, livestock or wildlife health. Today we will discuss whether we have the bad luck to be living through a completely random event, an event that can periodically afflict all species, or whether human activity is a perfect storm, creating the perfect conditions for diseases to emerge. Did COVID, Ebola, SARS, bird flu, West Nile virus ….... just happen? Or are we the authors of our own misfortune?
