    Animal-Related Diseases Concern Scientists
    January 04, 2012 : Health researchers and wildlife biologists say the number of infectious diseases that have jumped the boundary from animals to humans and between animal species is on the rise. Scientists believe the increase may be a result of more frequent contact between humans and wild animals, as well as the growing trade in wild animals, both legal and illegal.

    SARS-related virus linked to bats, camels and other animals
    September 28, 2012 - Britain's Health Protection Agency has published an early genetic sequence of the new respiratory virus related to SARS that shows it is most closely linked to bat viruses, and scientists say camels, sheep or goats might end up being implicated too.

    Well SARS virus might not transfer from one person to another easily but still it is a very dangerous virus. Too deadly.

    Researchers Develop Antibodies to Treat Ebola Virus
    October 18, 2012 - Researchers say they're making progress toward a treatment for the dreaded Ebola virus, which recently caused outbreaks in equatorial Africa. Experiments with monkeys using laboratory-engineered disease-fighting agents called monoclonal antibodies show promise in treating infection with the highly lethal disease.

    I think this is highly interesting. Especially if they are using plants to generate antibodies. Usually scientist (as far as I know) buy antibodies like Bioss and go from there to enhance them for different treatments. I think this is a great progress.

    Global health bodies have issued warnings to travellers to the worst hit region in the south of the country, with fears that Athens could soon be affected.

    Austerity budgets have resulted in drastic cutbacks in municipal spraying schemes to combat mosquito borne diseases.
