    Mosquito-borne arboviruses: The rising global threat

    An increasingly interconnected world with burgeoning tourism, travel, and trade has brought with it not just a prodigious daily shunt of people and cargo across the planet, but also the potential for pathogen and vector stow-aways to colonize new grounds. Behold Covid-19, only the most recent example, but by far not the only offender in the witness box. Multiple mosquito-borne arboviruses have escaped their ancestral homes to entrench themselves with tragic effect in many countries across the globe. Think Zika, Chikungunya, dengue, yellow fever, West-Nile virus, and others. This is the tip of the iceberg…a Pandora’s Box of silent and stealthy viruses lurk in primate and bird hosts in the jungles of Africa and other continents, waiting for Perfect Storm conditions to become the next scourge.

    We have assembled a panel of top specialists to inform us of the nature, scale and epidemiological trends of some of these viruses, and what the state of preparedness of our world is to confront these steadily expanding threats. No longer Future Threats, they are already among us, attacking our friends, families, and children. Are we ready to fight them?
