In the heart of the Amazon rainforest, scientists are on a mission to hunt down deadly viruses lurking in bats. Among them is Dr. Alessandra Nava, who warns of an apocalyptic pandemic that could emerge from the Brazilian Amazon region. As the rainforest continues to be destroyed, zoonotic diseases in the area are proliferating and spreading rapidly to humans.
As the virus adapts to its new host, researchers are already noticing a surge in cases of dengue fever along the borders of destroyed rainforests. The Amazon’s destruction is fueling a higher risk of pandemics and if humans don’t take this seriously, it’s only a matter of time before it spreads worldwide. The documentary, The Amazon Pandemic – Is it Looming? delves deep into the root cause of this issue, examining the impact of humans on the environment, and the consequences that occur as a result of environmental damage.
