In this week’s One Health roundup: The CDC warns the public about babesiosis, an emerging tick-borne threat to people and animals; veterinarian Monica Murphy co-authors a new book on the cultural history of rabies, the “world’s most diabolical virus”; veterinarians, MDs, and environmental scientists study the “ecology of disease”; and much more.
Thanks for reading, and have a happy and healthy weekend!
