世界正处于危机之中,新型冠状病毒(COVID-19)席卷全球,不仅夺去越来越多人的生命,也逐步摧毁全球经济。

令人遗憾的是,传染病专家早在多年前就预测到这类型的全球大流行病,虽然不知道疫情会在何时何地爆发,但可以肯定全球大流行病极有可能源自人畜共患传染病,即动物将病毒传染给人的疾病。我们本可以尽早预防甚至阻止这类极具破坏性的疫症。

我们非常清楚应该采取哪些措施,减少未来出现大流行病的机率。非法野生动物贸易大大增加了全球疾病爆发的风险。售卖多种活体野生动物的市场存在卫生条件恶劣的问题,成为制造危险病毒的熔炉。

我们呼吁所有地区的政策制定者立即行动,采取以下措施,减少未来疫症爆发的风险:

  • 关闭高风险野生动物市场,尤其是人口密度高的地区
  • 立即增加打击力度,禁止非法野生动物贸易,停止高风险野生动物买卖
  • 加强相关措施,减少消费者对高风险野生动物产品的需求

人类与野生动物的接触及互动具高风险,引发了新型冠状病毒、非典、伊波拉等疫症,并且会在全球新兴传染病热点地区继续存在。现如今,我们身处高度互联的世界,任何地方的新兴病毒都可以影响到全世界的每一个人。所以,我们一定要跨地区、跨行业、跨学科、跨社会,携手合作,确保未来不会有全球大流行病因高风险野生动物贸易而出现。
