How Do Diseases Jump from Animals to Humans? Reporting on the Zoonotic Spillover Ecosystem

The spillover of viral pathogens from animals to humans has become a hot topic over the last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Understanding the spillover ecosystem – the situations, context, and factors that could increase risks of spillover – is the key to reporting the topic well, but where and how can journalists get this understanding, and how can they find innovative story ideas in their local communities?

Please watch this webinar to learn more from experts in the field of One Health on STOP Spillover, a project focused on preventing zoonotic disease and their spillover worldwide and on how to cover this under-reported topic.
