Exploring the mystery of virus survival in nature: Toward preventing viral zoonoses

In recent years, newly emerging or re-emerging zoonoses are occurring in countries around the world. The spread of such diseases is believed to be the result of a drastic increase in contact between reservoir wild animals or arthropods and humans due to changes in the global environment, such as deforestation and farmland development. In order to control viral zoonoses, the public health laboratory is studying the behavior of viruses in nature, their transmission patterns and the molecular basis of their pathogenicity as well as conducting research on the development of techniques for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of such diseases.
