An International group of multi-disciplinary experts has released a report today, assessing the origins and early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, and making recommendations for future pandemics.

The report was produced by the Independent Task Force on COVID-19 and other pandemics, the key recommendations include a focus on ‘smart surveillance’ of potentially dangerous pathogens developing in target hot spots, and an emphasis on preventing zoonotic transmissions, which the report claims have become a bigger risk as factors like climate change, land use and wildlife trade have forced humans and animals to interact closely in new settings.
