Climate Change Raises Risk of Ebola Spread

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 16, 2019 (HealthDay News) — Climate change could help Ebola spread farther and affect areas previously free of the deadly virus, including the United States, researchers warn.

They concluded that by 2070, the climate crisis will result in a 1.75 to 3.2-fold increase in the rate that Ebola moves from animals to humans, CNN reported.

There will be a greater risk of outbreaks in areas of Africa that haven’t had outbreaks before, while outbreaks in previously affected areas would occur more often and spread farther, via air travel, to previously unaffected areas.

That includes a high risk of the disease spreading to China, Russia, India, Europe and the United States, CNN reported.

The study was published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications.
