Asia-Pacific is also a hotspot for emerging infectious diseases as illustrated by emergence of Nipah virus, new cholera and dengue variants among others. The Asia-Pacific region is recognized as a hotspot for biodiversity, but is suffering from rapid and extensive erosion of that diversity. As biodiversity loss is thought to be a major explanatory factor of the increase in emergence of infectious diseases, Asia-Pacific appears a key region on the patterns of infectious diseases. It is emphasized that biodiversity changes through fragmentation and degradation of natural habitats (particularly forested areas) increase the proximity of wildlife to humans, and their domestic animals, and result in increased health risks through increased transmission of zoonotic diseases. A reduction in biodiversity may lead to an increase in the prevalence and transmission rates of certain vector-borne diseases. The increasing instances and concerns towards the spread of various outbreaks has made the population more conscious which has led to the use of preventive measures including hand sanitizing.
