Nel Contagio @PaoloGiordano:

« Non ho paura di ammalarmi. Di cosa allora? Di tutto quello che il contagio può cambiare. Di scoprire che l’impalcatura della civiltà che conosco è un castello di carte. Ho paura dell’azzeramento, ma anche del suo contrario: che la paura passi invano, senza lasciarsi dietro un cambiamento. »

Contagions (Nel Contagio) de @PatrickGiordano, est paru en France aux Editions du Seuil. L’ouvrage est en accès libre en ligne :

Emergences de maladies infectieuses. Risques et enjeux de société.

« SRAS, grippes aviaires, virus Ébola, MERS-CoV… Depuis quelques dizaines d’années, les maladies infectieuses font l’objet d’une attention croissante de la part des scientifiques, des gestionnaires de risques, des médias et du public. Comment expliquer que les maladies infectieuses ne cessent d’émerger ? Et quels sont les défis que cette situation génère ? »

David Quammen (Author, journalist)

Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic.

« Ebola, SARS, Hendra, AIDS, and countless other deadly viruses all have one thing in common: the bugs that transmit these diseases all originate in wild animals and pass to humans by a process called spillover (…) How, where from, and why these diseases emerge and asks the terrifying question: What might the next big one be? »

Sonia Shah (Science Journalist and Author)

Pandemic. Tracking Contagions, from Cholera to Ebola and Beyond.

« Interweaving history, original reportage, and personal narrative, Pandemic explores the origins of epidemics, drawing parallels between the story of cholera—one of history’s most disruptive and deadly pathogens—and the new pathogens that stalk humankind today, from Ebola and coronaviruses to drug-resistant superbugs. »

WHO: “(…)There is a very real threat of a rapidly moving, highly lethal pandemic of a respiratory pathogen killing 50 to 80 million people and wiping out nearly 5% of the world’s economy. A global pandemic on that scale would be catastrophic, creating widespread havoc, instability and insecurity. The world is not prepared.” See: https://apps.who.int/gpmb/assets/annual_report/GPMB_annualreport_2019.pdf

A medical historian narrates the last century of scientific struggle against an enduring enemy: deadly contagious disease…[D]espite a century of medical progress, viral and bacterial disasters continue to take us by surprise, inciting panic and dominating news cycles. From the Spanish flu to the 1924 outbreak of pneumonic plague in Los Angeles to the 1930 “parrot fever” pandemic, through the more recent SARS, Ebola, and Zika epidemics, the last one hundred years have been marked by a succession of unanticipated pandemic alarms.

The Psychology of Pandemics, Preparing for the Next Global Outbreak of Infectious Disease – Steven Taylor
[R]emarkably little attention has been devoted to the psychological factors that influence the spread of pandemic infection and the associated emotional distress and social disruption. Psychological factors are important for many reasons. They play a role in nonadherence to vaccination and hygiene programs, and play an important role in how people cope with the threat of infection and associated losses.

Het is niet de schuld van de vleermuis’, een artikel van Sophie Bloemink #EyeOpener in De Groene over het achtergrond/ context #locksdown van de Corona-crisis.
“Iedereen die een telefoon heeft is verantwoordelijk’ (…) ‘In elke telefoon en laptop zit coltan. Dat komt van een mijn in de Democratische Republiek Congo. Om coltan te mijnen wordt regenwoud gekapt waar met uitsterven bedreigde gorilla’s leven. Die mijnen liggen weer naast tropisch regenwoud waar vleermuizen leven. Dat verhoogt het risico op een species jump van een ziekteverwekkend virus. Er wordt een groepje arme mensen de jungle in gestuurd om in deze coltanmijnen te werken, ze eten bushmeat om in leven te blijven. Dat verhoogt de kans op een species jump van een ziekteverwekkend virus. (…) Pandemieën zullen de grootste bedreiging zijn van ons bestaan (…) Wetenschappers hebben er geen enkele moeite mee om nog veel bedreigender scenario’s daarvoor te bedenken. Denk maar eens aan een virus met de sterftegraad van ebola en de besmettelijkheid van corona en je kunt helemáál niet meer slapen. ‘Een pandemie kan ons bestaan bedreigen in een tijdsspanne van weken of maanden (…) [Hoop is] dat deze crisis wordt aangegrepen om te komen tot fundamentele veranderingen in de verhouding tot onze omgeving (…)”
