Abstract

The current path of human development generates deleterious environmental impacts, which have negative impact on health; among them, intensified transmission of infectious diseases, epidemics and pandemics, such as covid-19. The way we usually deal with biodiversity and ecosystems, combined with the effects of climate change, make for interfaces and pathways that favor diversification, spillover and the circulation of viruses. By these means, Sars-CoV-2 may invade Brazilian biomes, transforming, for instance, the Amazon rain forest into a huge reservoir from where coronavirus may return even more aggressive to health.
