About this book

Introduction

This book provides trajectories and illustrations of viruses that have catapulted into the global arena (linked to humans, animals, and vectors) due to human behaviors in recent years, as well as viruses that have already shown expansion among humans, animals, and vectors just a few decades ago. Topics in the current book include:

  • vaccines
  • environmental impact
  • emerging virus transmission
  • Filovirus (Ebola)
  • hemorrhagic fevers
  • flaviviruses
  • Dengue evasion
  • papillomavirus
  • Hepatitis C
  • Nipah
  • Giant
  • Hanta
  • Bunya
  • encephalitis
  • West Nile Virus
  • Zikavirus
  • XMRV
  • Henipavirus
  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus
  • influenza
  • several aspects of HIV
