Brian May says people should consider a vegan diet in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Queen lead guitarist, who has been following a vegan diet since January, said, "I've been three months a vegan now. To me it was an experiment, because for a long time I'd been an animal campaigner but grappled with the fact that I was still eating them occasionally."

"If you want to get deep into it, I think we should be looking again at whether we should be eating animals. That's a central issue here, this pandemic seemed to come from people eating animals and it's becoming more well known that eating animals is not the greatest thing for our health," May said in an interview with NME.

He added, "Now we've seen more of the effects of how eating animals has brought us to our knees as a species, I think it's time to re-examine our world in a way that doesn't abuse other species."
