A new coronavirus found in patients in Malaysia may be the first to jump to humans from dogs.

Researchers say they don’t see any reason to expect another pandemic from the virus, but the new pathogen underscores the treacherous nature of coronaviruses and the need to monitor animal viruses for potential threats to human health.

Today on Wellness Wednesday, we discuss the search for the next pandemic-inducing coronavirus.

Guests:

  • Chuck Gehring, president and CEO of LifeCare Alliance
  • Anastasia Vlasova, assistant professor in The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences
  • Aviva Romm, MD, author, Hormone Intelligence
