Environmental limits of Rift Valley fever revealed using ecoepidemiological mechanistic models

Vector-borne diseases represent complex infection transmission systems; previous epidemiological models have been unable to formally capture the relationship between the ecological limits of vector species and the dynamics of pathogen transmission.

Researchers map the potential spread of yellow fever virus to cities around the world

Researchers mapped the worldwide pathways through which yellow fever virus could spread by analyzing global patterns of airline travel, environmental conditions needed for transmission within a city, and countries' requirements for proof of yellow fever vaccination upon entry.
