Emerging Infectious Diseases in Cities
James Byrne, Scientific American
When we were discussing the ‘cities’ theme that’s running across all the blogs I didn’t want to take the easy route. Connecting cities and disease is pretty easy, I could look at plague or cholera and be totally within the scope of the theme. Instead I remembered a little paper I had read while ago about the role cities play in the emergence of new infectious diseases.
