This video has ben recommended by Body & Soul’s Health Outcomes Manager Alison. With each new virus the affects humans, questions are inevitably asked, could we have prevented this?, how can we use technology to help us understand this?, what can we learn?
Nathan Wolfe is an inspirational scientist who studies viruses like HIV and was named in the “TIME Top 100 People of 2011″. This video, “Why We Have Outbreaks”, provides a clear picture of the way viruses spread between animals and people. It provides a hopeful insight into some of the work that is being done to identify viruses like HIV before they become outbreaks. We hope you find this as interesting as we did!
