  • The suspected role of the wildlife trade in the COVID-19
    pandemic and the risk of new emerging infectious
    diseases in humans have received widespread attention
    since the emergence of COVID-19.1–3 A range of measures
    to prevent future pandemics have been suggested, from
    a global ban of commercial trade in wildlife to bans
    of wild animals for human consumption. Although
    emergency bans that enable rapid responses and
    adaptation can be a component of risk management,
    questions persist regarding the appropriateness of
    broad international bans in the context of zoonosis and
    pathogenic risks emerging from human consumption
    and use of wildlife.1,2,4
