The platform provides detailed information for 120+ pathogens, including a profile, history, and current disease statistics.
In the presence of health threats, precision public health approaches aim to provide targeted, timely, and population-specific interventions. Accurate surveillance methodologies that can estimate infectious disease activity ahead of official healthcare-based reports, at relevant spatial resolutions, are important for achieving this goal.
The disease detection system, Kidenga, enables public health practitioners to track mosquito-populations within a community and identify those experiencing Zika symptoms.
Researchers developed a stochastic model to capture variations in Zika case reporting, importations, and transmission.
Scientists believe US states at risk for Zika may already have undetected cases.
Canada plans to surveil pregnant women who have tested positive for Zika to track and understand the virus.
