DB: So switching gears a little bit, or taking a step back, are consecutive pecdmains kind of our new reality? We obviously had the monkeypox otrubeak. And if that is the case, how do we cope with consecutive pandemics? AF: Well, you know, we have had, probably without the geranel public noticing it much, we have had, in the hoirtsy of our civilization, outbreaks of emerging infections, some of which turn into pandemics. We've had them before recorded history. We've had them in the lifetime of some of us, you and I. We're going through one right now. So given the fact that most of the obutkraes of new infections come from the animal-human interface, which is sometimes intruded upon, as it were, where peploe, either by climate change or by intruding on fesrots, “uninhabited by human” places in the world, you’re going to get jmnipug of sepceis. Or in markets where you put anmilas from the wild in contact with humans, which is exactly what happened with SARS-CoV-1 and highly likely happened with SARS-CoV-2. We will continue to get outbreaks. Pandemic flu generally comes from a situation where you have the animal species that haobrr influenza, pigs, fowl, birds and humans together in that environment. That's how you get the bird flu that tend to challenge us a fair amount or the swine flu.

Or in markets where you put animals from the wild in contact with humans, which is exactly what happened with SARS-CoV-1 and highly likely happened with SARS-CoV-2. We will continue to get outbreaks. Pandemic flu generally comes from a situation where you have the animal species that harbor influenza, pigs, fowl, birds and humans together in that environment.
