Equine influenza virus infection risk is not limited to equids; dogs, cats, and humans are susceptible. Equine influenza is spread by direct and indirect contact, and recent epizootics also suggest wind-aided aerosol transmission, and with increased international transport and commerce in horses this could lead to emergent strains and potential global spread.
The platform provides detailed information for 120+ pathogens, including a profile, history, and current disease statistics.
Metabiota Epidemic Tracker is a free platform that allows users to view, analyze, and understand events.
Median estimates from the three datasets analyzed suggest at least half of all Ebola virus disease spillover events (possibly as many as 83 percent) have gone undetected.
Greater knowledge of pathogen genomics and their vectors may play a major role in preventing and treating infectious diseases.
The European Regional Laboratory Task Force for High Threat Pathogens will focus on improving disease detection capacities in countries in eastern and south-eastern Europe and central Asia.
The network will monitor the pathogen spectrum and drug resistance of fungal infections, along with the use of special or restricted antifungal drugs. Additionally, the network will monitor in real-time high-risk pathogenic fungi and outbreaks of fungal diseases.
A consortium of14 organizations will develop an Australia-wide antimicrobial resistance knowledge engine to anticipate outbreaks and inform interventions.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the first time will be monitoring the nation’s tick population and the diseases the pests may be carrying.The number of people diagnosed with serious diseases acquired through ticks has more than doubled over the past few decades.
