The “Deadly Dozen” Fits into the Collapse Jigsaw!

WCS has identified 12 deadly pathogens that could spread into new regions aided by climate change

A report by Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), released on October 7, lists 12 deadly pathogens that could spread globally as a result of climate change affecting the wildlife, which could then jump species barrier to infect and spread among humans. (Source)

The deadly diseases are:

  • Ebola
  • Intestinal and external parasites
  • Lyme disease
  • Plague
  • Red tides

Three major causes of global collapse triggered by the first wave of the world’s collapsing cities, which were previously listed in EDRO’s Dynamics of Collapse, include the “deadly dozen” diseases in the WCS list:
