People's health closely connected with that of animals': Harsh Vardhan

Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan attended ICMR's 'One Health' symposium on April 12. He said, "With increased interaction between humans and animals, human health can't be seen in isolation and COVID-19 is more than a reminder... "One Health" approach recognises that people's health is closely connected with animals' health... Earth has experienced changes in climate and land use with practices like deforestation, intensive farming. Disruptions in environmental habitats can provide new opportunities for diseases to pass to animals."
