NPR 07/02/17 MAP: Find Out What New Viruses Are Emerging In Your Backyard. If you're a germaphobe, make sure you're sitting down.
Back in 1999, a woman in California cleaned up rodent droppings in her home. Two weeks later, her liver started failing. Then she started to bleed internally — a hemorrhagic fever that would kill her. Eventually doctors found a new virus in her body, which very likely came from a rat. What Causes Pandemics?
If you think there are more disease outbreaks than ever, that's because there are. A few years later, a man in Arizona went to the hospital. Over in the Midwest, the problem has been new tick-borne diseases, some deadly. The pattern continues across the country and across the world. Over the past 60 years, the number of new diseases cropping up in a decade has almost quadrupled. "We're in a hyperinfectious disease world," says epidemiologist Michael Osterholm, who directs the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy in Minneapolis.
OK. But still, the studies found a surge in diseases. So the big question is: Why? Wait.

SCIENCE MAG 06/12/13 From persistence to cross-species emergence of a viral zoonosis. ECOHEALTH 03/09/13 New Research Identifies a Possible Finite Number of New Viruses. NEW YORK - September 3, 2013 - EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit organization that focuses on local conservation and global health issues, and the Center for Infection and Immunity (CII) at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health announced a new strategy to identify the total number of wildlife viruses that could potentially cause emerging disease outbreaks that threaten both public and wildlife health.
Combining field investigations with a new statistical approach, scientists estimate that there may exist a minimum of 320,000 viruses awaiting discovery from mammals alone. With over three-quarters of the emerging infectious diseases originating from wildlife this research gives scientists an estimate of the number of viral agents that may eventually cause a pandemic.

A newly emerging virus is a virus that has never been recognized before. Previously unrecognized viruses are constantly being identified. New viral infectious diseases emerge as viruses adapt to new hosts and new environments.

Drexler, V.M. Corman, A.F. Tateno, R.M. Suggested citation for this article Abstract Bats host noteworthy viral pathogens, including coronaviruses, astroviruses, and adenoviruses. Bats (Chiroptera) constitute ≈20% of living mammal species and are distributed on all continents except Antarctica (1). In spite of the potential for serious consequences of virus epidemics emerging from bats, knowledge is currently lacking on the ecology of bat-borne viruses in bat reservoirs. In a recent study, we obtained preliminary statistical hints that bats were more likely to carry CoV if they were young (16).
