What you don’t know can kill you. Case in point: Deadly pathogens like HIV and Ebola were once viruses infecting only wild animals, of which humans were blissfully unaware. That’s why researcher Dennis Carroll and his colleagues lay out their rationale for the launch of the Global Virome Project (GVP), an ambitious billion-dollar plan to identify hundreds of thousands of potentially pandemic viruses in their animal hosts, before the next outbreak. getAbstract recommends this article to anyone who needs reassurance that viral experts are ready to step up the fight against pandemic diseases.

In this article, you will learn

  • What dangers undiscovered zoonotic viruses pose to human health;
  • How the Global Virome Project plans to identify these viruses before they do harm, giving health officials time to develop therapies and countermeasures; and
  • Why the roughly $1 billion price tag of this project is worth the money.
