Zoonoses in Central Europe topic at Lesch's Kosmos
Bornaviruses, hantaviruses and the West Nile virus: Besides SARS-CoV-2, a number of other pathogens threaten Central Europe. When and why do some of these new viruses cross the animal-human boundary? In his science program on ZDF, Harald Lesch follows the paths of the new viruses, shedding light on how they spread, how dangerous they are for humans and animals, and how the viruses can be controlled. For the filming, the Leschs Kosmos team visited the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute, among other places.
