ABSTRACT
Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services highlights that there is a close nexus between the global health pandemics and the biodiversity. The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly indicated the importance of environmental health. Seeing the advancement of scientific field, it is clear that there is some link between the biodiversity and spread of outbreaks of epidemics and pandemics. Interestingly, preservation of biodiversity has been recognized as an important step to control the disease outbreaks since last one year. If biodiversity is well managed and conserved, it will act as a barrier against the spill-over of infectious diseases.
