These new risk maps and infection estimates provide novel insights into the global, regional and national public health burden imposed by dengue and will help to guide improvements in disease control strategies using vaccine, drug and vector control methods, and in their economic evaluation. Expand
It is argued that nascent fungal infections will cause increasing attrition of biodiversity, with wider implications for human and ecosystem health, unless steps are taken to tighten biosecurity worldwide. Expand
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
Real-time mobility data from Wuhan and detailed case data including travel history are used to elucidate the role of case importation in transmission in cities across China and to ascertain the impact of control measures. Expand
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
Clinicians can use these 5-year GeoSentinel data to help tailor more efficient pretravel preparation strategies and evaluate possible differential diagnoses of ill returned travelers according to destination and reason for travel. Expand

HealthMap is a useful free and open resource employing text processing algorithms to identify important disease outbreak information through a user-friendly interface and demonstrates significant usefulness in managing the large volume of information processed by the system.Expand
John Brownstein and colleagues discuss HealthMap, an automated real-time system that monitors and disseminates online information about emerging infectious diseases.
A new generation of disease-surveillance “mashups” can mine, categorize, filter, and visualize online intelligence about epidemics in real time. Expand
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
