A previously unknown corona virus is sweeping across the world, with the consequent suffering and distress. That is many, many times in the past, the virus has spread to humans from other animals, and infection is favored by urbanization and overcrowded conditions. The worldwide epidemics caused by new viruses to remain at a serious health problem. We believe that the research community is uniquely positioned for the development of new antiviral drugs and a vaccine against the global virus.
the Spread of the virus, which is a kind of container of the genetic material, which can only survive by spreading their dna or rna, to its host, is favored by people who are highly mobile, and live more densely in all the major towns and cities. As a result, we have, in the past few decades, we have seen epidemics caused by the new, the global spread of viruses for which we have no vaccines or anti-viral drugs. Each of the outbreak of the new virus seems to come as a surprise, and, after the epidemic has run its course, it seems to sound the all clear. But the outbreak of the global viral infections are most likely to occur in the future.
(see box). There are no drugs or vaccines for any of these infections. We believe that this message is not sufficient to have attracted the attention of the media, and policy makers. Globally, the spread of viruses, can develop rapidly to a threat to the health of the public, which clearly arise from the fact that the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is from the Wuhan region of China.
and Our resident viruses, which, in real terms, causes significant morbidity, suffering, and death, and dates in a strange way under the radar.
As one of a number of previous examples it can be mentioned that the sarsvirus, which is transferred from the bat to the sibetkatt in China, it was the one closest to the explosive spread among the people, beginning in the spring of 2003. The outbreak took the world by surprise, and the mortality rate was quickly approaching the 10 per cent, with an even higher death rate amongst older people. For a start, hemlighölls the Prc, which led to a delayed reaction from, inter alia, the world health organization. The spread of the sarsvirus ended within a few months of the year. The reasons for this is not known, but the global dissemination of information between different research groups about this new virus and its gene sequence allowed for rapid molecular diagnostics. The infected person could be identified, which, in addition to other preventative measures, is likely to have contributed to this, the virus is not spread all over the world.
in 2009, the broke with a pandemic from a new flu virus, swine flu. A global vaccine programmes, forcerades up, which is likely to be held back by this epidemic with serious side-effects in a small percentage of those vaccinated. The spread of the swine flu, the descendants are now in control. It is a much-publicized health concerns, causing large outbreaks, and it is available in both the vaccine and anti-viral drugs. The flu is in stark contrast to the many other acute infections, which may be at least equal to the major cross-border health threats in the future.
as the Sars and the swine flu is not a unique phenomenon. Over the past decade, we have witnessed a rapid spread of the two mosquito-borne viruses. Chikungunyaviruset caused in the year 2013, millions of cases of febrile illness, often with chronic joint pain as a result. This virus is spreading from Africa to Europe, the Caribbean, and the united states through shipments of infected individuals, and/or the carrier body.
And in 2015, the spread of zikavirus, that is, from the beginning of a apvirus of The forests, in Brazil, and then head north on the north american continent. Zikavirusinfektion affecting especially the young, and the images of the infected children, with an undeveloped skull is not likely to have left no one indifferent.
ebola viruses, which are mainly infected people in the remote villages of the african jungle, it quickly spread among the people in the urban areas of west africa for 2014-2016. The mortality rate was about 40%, at least 11 000 people died from the infection. Sekundärfall has occurred in a number of countries, and now there is a new and serious outbreak in the democratic republic of the Congo.
The social impact of China has been enormous – in spite of the establishment of the karantänsområden and travel restrictions are in progress, the spread of the completely.
in The past, but it certainly won't be the last, of the global virus infection caused by a novel coronavirus, who is likely to have spread to humans from a djurmarknad of the chinese mångmiljonstaden in xi'an. This is the virus which gives rise to a widespread inflammation of the lungs, which can be very serious. It's the biggest threat, it seems, in this case, is not to be the mortality rate, which is likely to be modest, but its ability to be spread into the global population that lacks immunity to this, and is similar to the corona virus.
" the virus is spreading efficiently between regions, states and countries. The social impact of China has been enormous – in spite of the establishment of the karantänsområden and travel restrictions are in progress, the spread of the completely. The economic consequences for China and the rest of the world can only be hinted at, as well as the vaccine, as the drugs were missing.
Our resident viruses, which, in real terms, causes significant morbidity, suffering, and death, and dates in a strange way under the radar. We are now moving into the ”vabruari” in which the leaves of absence as a result of viruses such as winter vomiting disease (norovirus) and respiratory tract infections (rinovirus, parainfluensavirus, poliovirus, RS virus, etc.), on the one hand, makes the society dysfunctional. The situation is the same in many of the countries in the world, even though the seasons may vary. To fight against these viruses is a lack of effective anti-viral drugs and vaccines.
We believe that there is any reason to increase our preparedness to deal with common and serious viral infections, today, are not able to prevent and / or treat, as we do not have drugs and vaccines. Just as effective as the major drug companies have been in the development of drugs for chronic viruspandemier such as hiv and hepatitis C, as inefficient as they were, to discover new points of attack on the many new viruses that are spreading and will spread, all over the world.
in the past decade, there has been, among other things, the Swedish research council and the wallenberg foundation, has created advanced platforms for the development of new drugs against the infection.
the preferred bet of the virus has never been done in this area. An update of the Swedish forskarinsats with the support of the public and private sectors, the infrastructure, of course, would be to be able to change the world. We would therefore argue that targeted a Swedish programme for support of domestic antiviral research, with the aim to develop new antiviral drugs and new vaccines of domestic and global viruses.
