The coronavirus has been described as the biggest challenge the world has faced since the Second World War. Yet while all eyes are on this devastating pandemic, the Amazon forest is burning to the point of becoming a planetary emergency.
In this episode Fredrik Moberg looks at deforestation and the looming risk of large-scale destruction in the Amazon and elsewhere – something we know is also linked to the spread of infectious disease from animals to humans.
