African Swine Fever In China: Epizootic or An EpicZootic?

While the full size and scope of China's African swine fever (ASF) epizootic remains frustratingly undefined - and the long-term impacts are largely unknowable - the uncontrolled spread of ASF across Asia could have serious impacts that extend far beyond economic losses for pork producers and a switch to alternative proteins for consumers.

‘Sentinel chickens’ implicate Florida Panhandle as epicenter for Eastern equine encephalitis virus in US

The study revealed extensive genetic diversity as well as spatial dispersal of EEEV within Florida. Additionally, Das and colleagues observed more clustering of the disease in the Panhandle region. The findings, they said, indicate that EEEV is present year-round in the Florida Panhandle and that the region could be “seeding” EEEV epizootics in the rest of the state and the Northeastern US.

Long-term circulation of Zika virus in Thailand: an observational study

Research shows that Zika virus has circulated at a low but sustained level for at least 16 years, suggesting that Zika virus can adapt to persistent endemic transmission. Health systems need to adapt to cope with regular occurrences of the severe complications associated with infection.

Zoonotic emergence of coronavirus: a potential public risk for Latin America

There are no studies on coronaviruses (CoV) of bats, nor in humans in Colombia and Latin America. This lack of information in a country that holds the greatest diversity of Chiroptera in the region, reveals an ecoepidemiological gap that we have to overcome with the implementation of more studies aimed at better understanding the role of CoV in human health and animal in the region and in the world.
