Why Coronavirus is the by-product of human behavior with David Quammen


Premiered Apr 23, 2020

David Quammen is the author of Spillover, the book that in 2012 predicted the details of the next big pandemic, the Coronavirus. In this interview we discuss how he predicted the Coronavirus pandemic, what were some of the warning signs we had at our disposal and why human behavior is at the root of this epidemic. Could politicians have predicted this pandemic? Did they have the tools to do so? Why were healthcare programs addressing epidemics cut from government budgets? What do we need to change after the pandemic ends? These are some of the questions David addresses. A THING BY: Olmo Parenti
