Globally, some three-quarters of all emerging zoonoses originally come from wild animals. Netherlands Centre of One Health organises a webinar to gain more expert insight in zoonosis and the jump from animals to humans.

The world is now more vulnerable to outbreaks of zoonotic disease than it used to be, firstly because people travel far and frequently, transport of animals is rising and infections can thus spread quickly. So join the four scientists: Fabian Leendertz, Lia van der Hoek, Arthur Eldridge, Chantal Bleeker-Rovers, whose expertise is in zoonoses for the latest update on their research during this webinar.

Date & Time: 2 September 2021, 3 pm – 4.30 pm (CEST)
Location: Zoom (you will receive a link prior to the webinar)
