Zika and Other Neglected and Emerging Flaviviruses - E-Book
Covers familiar flaviviruses that are spreading into new regions or are causing increasingly severe disease (such as Zika, dengue and West Nile viruses), as well as lesser-knowns viruses such as tick-borne encephalitis virus, Powassan virus, Omsk hemorrhagic fever, and Murray Valley encephalitis virus.
Allows health-related personnel to search for potential treatments and protective responses by examining what measure did or did not work with other, related flaviviruses.
Helps readers understand how to prevent or contain newly emerging viral threats-a particularly timely topic regarding the global spread of COVID-19 and the potential of tick-borne encephalitis to rapidly spread and cause severe illness, panic, and disruption of economies.
Consolidates today's available information on this timely topic into a single, convenient resource.

"Dr. Lisa A. Beltz has produced a tour de force scientific and reference book on neglected and emerging arboviral flaviviruses in her latest work... Of equal and perhaps even better appeal for generalists in the health sciences, public health, and infectious disease medicine, this book is highly readable and straightforward."
