We can see that all of human behaviour that caused senseless wars, usage of nuclear weapons and nuclear warheads, weapons of mass destruction, causing unprecedented illnesses and diseases to spill over into humans including destruction and damage of environment and for the past few decades we have been witnessing a complete environmental disaster; and today’s civilisation is “playing with raging inferno”.
The novel coronavirus is a disaster that is not getting us off guard. It is a human-induced disaster in every way. Our actions and attitudes, focussing on destruction of mankind and countries with the sole purpose of taking over world domination, have disturbed the equilibrium and the balance of nature, that has led to climate change, altering rainfall patterns, and causing unprecedented natural disasters floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, dry weather, and famine; an acute insufficiency and severe shortage of food through crop failure resulting in violent hunger, starvation, and death.
Man was placing too much and too many pressures on the natural world with such disastrously damaging and terrible consequences; and we have received a warning that failing to take care of the planet meant, not taking care of ourselves. And now, nature has stepped in to take its revenge.
Leading scientists have said that the COVID-19 outbreak is a “clear warning shot” to assess our current situation. Nature is sending us a message with the coronavirus pandemic. The COVID-19 crisis may provide an opportunity for change, but we are not convinced it will be taken.
This is a massive wakeup call – An astronomical global economic impact of any emerging disease. Not a single country or people in the world have been spared. Because everyone on Mother Earth is responsible for the pollution of the global environment in some way or another, no matter where and how the pollution is produced; as airborne and foodborne pollutants could circulate around the world in different ways.
