I agree with your central point, that societies and policy makers should be concerned with the relation between human health and disease outbreaks and conservation and ecological policy. I guess your cynicism regarding where on the priority list this topic is is largely warranted. I believe we need to be watchful, take appropriate action, invest and make changes. I also hope some lessons will be learned from Covid-19, but I doubt they will be - I wouldn't be surprised if, for example, China would again lift its ban on wildlife trade. Some of this bad crap is too ingrained for it to go away even with strong legal action by willing governments. However with regards to people living their lives while ignoring these issues, I would like to point out that very few are able or willing to live their lives constantly worrying about things that could do wrong or constantly calling for conservation and environmental action. Even of those who are concerned about conservation and the environment (like I would guess most people on this site) few can or want to dedicate their entire life towards these matters. There is still such a thing as enjoying life. It is good to be concerned, but few can or want to let that concern rule their entire life. PS: Some of these discussions should probably be moved to the Covid-19 thread, if possible.
