Map drawn to predict next virus jump from mammals*
A study has suggested that scientists could predict where on the planet the next virus could jump from animals to humans, thus providing data that will help in early warning systems and disease surveillance efforts. According to the U.S.-based researchers, few analytical tools exist to help scientists understand the patterns of viral diversity in wildlife and how these may successfully become the next human virus, or which viruses could cross species boundaries.
