Card #28: Vectors of Disease

Causes Consequences
Front of the card "Vectors of Disease"


With global warming, animals migrate. Some of them carry diseases and can reach areas where the population is not immunized against these diseases.

Explanation

The problem is not so much the proliferation of vectors of disease as their displacement. This card ideally comes after card 25, as vectors of disease are a sub-part of biodiversity.

Other causes

  • Permafrost: Permafrost contains billions of buried bacteria and viruses. If it were to thaw, some of these pathogens could end up contaminating human or animal populations. In 2016, there was an anthrax epidemic in Siberia because of a 75-year-old carcass that was reported to have thawed[1].
