Scientific Session 7

Session 07: Emerging Viruses
New Viruses keep emerging each day and the term emerging virus is used to indicate the viruses that have been identified recently. Recent advances have occurred in the identification and understanding of new hantaviruses in the Americas, causing an acute respiratory disease. Although new viruses are discovered almost yearly (e.g., Australian bat lyssavirus), other "older" viruses (e.g., dengue) are re-emerging, infecting millions of people every year with significant mortality.
