a global health emergency. such leaps can happen in so-called wet markets that's where viruses can easily change their host crossing from one species to another. china is home to several wet markets and the international community has been calling for that closure. i think i should shut down those things right away we can clearly see. the great risk to the your who work with risk to go through. its curly thought there are over 200 diseases that are spread from animals to humans known as do no seas about 40 have the potential to cause a pandemic. sars aids all are examples of viruses that jump from animals to human beings 3 out of 5 new infectious diseases that emerge originate

12:49 pm
in the stage of examination it's not so called an immediate threat we're seeing infections but it's something we need to keep our eye on just the way we did 2009 with the emergence of the swine flu so far there's been no evidence of person to person transmission of a new strain of swine flu virus but the last few months have shown just how fast that could change. in a short while ago i spoke to when king zhang she manages the global influenza program at the world health organization and i asked her how worried she was about this so-called g 4 strain of the swine flu. so the cheapest rent oaks lie in fresno iris is not new iris cece virus comes to from a surveillance program from tucson that you live in and 2018. they were human infections e.c.g. for group
12:50 pm
a slam virus reported so of course well we are concerned of the seris as well as our west swine virus he said in any infrared ara-c. but otherwise reminds us that we could we should remember vigilance and be aware of just read around in friends or does it have the potential to cause a similar pandemic as the corona virus now. where it is very difficult to to say back to all is it or is it more in friend about or is he sister lost so why maurice isa has a potential when only don't know which maurice would jump out and cause the next in friends of him then. how does this do these viruses transmits give us an idea. well see surface why virus is as amounting in friends are a sweet meaning sent to infect humans spar ethically just recently there was
12:51 pm
a human infection of swine virus is reported from germany was this is a slam virus infection in there in a child who heads that i reckon contact with pigs so he's typo's a magic infection or occurs from time to time. and he'll use virus to get out of. efficient human to human transmission well where it has spread his ear but to set limits not or append emic that to what it is causing. one thing 3 out of 5 new insects is diseases that emerge originate from animals where you see the biggest risk for the transmission of pathogens from animals to humans. yeah of course well anymore is a vast reservoir owning a virus east so is there a sea circulating in morris and most shows us
12:52 pm
a silent what in and mars which means in most what they want to present it is easy by the if a well of so sabera sees a jump west's rule that species is the area infecting human and also well causing sufficient efficient human to human transmission then it will be a problem problematic so what we really need to look into is the human animal interface where to lead what exit to stage what is possible any virus he said jumping out front end was species went to humans so that we could pick those up and of course the well other efforts into those who are hands on granma when we talk about the animal or human interface what sort of role do what markets play when it comes to the transmission of these viruses well human and more interface of course a lot oh well well from certainly aware markets
12:53 pm
a wet market to what is wound zos and also the assa well as you are see as a agriculture amount well for example as a backyard was a better than poetry well as well so i think what we've been doing is that we said . no i improve oh my rock we stray cats it's a practice what human then morning to face is a great culture ceteris etc so i think was it the other efforts made in parallel with street cats a was that with market where becky at as well as those were commercial farming except for one can just as the world health organization speaking there now sign for our resident coronavirus expert here is our science correspondent derek williams answering your questions about covert 90. do people who are a symptom attic carry the same amount of viruses people who show symptoms.

spread from asymptomatic or precint to mattick patients is one reason covert 19 it has moved with such such lightning speed through our populations live viable sars cove 2 is clearly being shared by people who often show no symptoms of the disease when they when they test positive for it so so we know they're playing a role in transmission much more of a role than they did for example during the sars epidemic when when patients were most infectious $5.00 to $10.00 days after they began showing symptoms the european centers for disease control say it's difficult to quantify how contagious asymptomatic people are because studies simply don't agree but the general consensus appears to be that they're less contagious than patients with symptoms or
12:55 pm
or priest symptomatic patients people who are going to get sick but just don't know it yet however there's also growing evidence that there are no significant differences in viral loads between the groups so to sum it up asymptomatic people appear to carry just as much of the virus as someone with symptoms but they seem to be at least a little less likely to spread it. and of course you can post your questions to derek on our you tube channel if you'd like to keep up with the latest developments on the corona virus pandemic to subscribe to our newsletter just log on to w dot com slash corona stash newsletter. the coronavirus crisis is having a major impact on millions of hiv patients who are reliant on lifesaving drugs it is estimated that nearly 40000000 people across the world are living with hiv
