Refining the Global Spatial Limits of Dengue Virus Transmission by Evidence-Based Consensus
O. Brady, P. Gething, +7 authors S. Hay
MedicinePLoS neglected tropical diseases
1 August 2012
TLDR
A contemporary global map of national-level dengue status is generated that assigns a relative measure of certainty and identifies gaps in the available evidence and provides a preliminary estimate of population at risk with an upper bound of 3.97 billion people. Expand

Mapping the zoonotic niche of Ebola virus disease in Africa
D. Pigott, N. Golding, +16 authors S. Hay
Biology, Medicine
eLife

8 September 2014
TLDR
Increasing population sizes and international connectivity by air since the first detection of EVD in 1976 suggest that the dynamics of human-to-human secondary transmission in contemporary outbreaks will be very different to those of the past. Expand

Forest fragmentation predicts local scale heterogeneity of Lyme disease risk
J. Brownstein, D. Skelly, T. Holford, D. Fish
Biology, Medicine
Oecologia

27 September 2005
TLDR
A positive link between fragmentation and both tick density and infection prevalence in ticks is revealed and human incidence of Lyme disease is lower in fragmented contexts suggesting that entomologic risk is not the critical driver of human infections.Expand
