I have seen many situtaion of people feeding Seagulls and pigeons, which with this situation of coronavirus it is still not making sense for some people that animals (wild or urban) could bring deseases for human being.
I wanted to know if EU is doing anything to explain ME once for all that this actions can result in a healthcare problem to human beings. These animals are in everyplace around main place is garbage and feeding them is bringing all the bacterias and virus around the city.
Isn't a good time to explain all ME and the world the consequences of some actions? how it work the system? if it is not now, when it will be?
