Why pathogens emerge and how to prevent them

When new infectious diseases are discovered, one of the first questions is “where did this come from?” More often than not, the answer is one of our animal friends - a kind of disease called a zoonosis.

Studies have shown that about 75% of emerging infectious diseases (diseases that are newly discovered, are increasing in frequency, or have moved into a new geographic area) are of animal origin, as are 60% of all known pathogens.

Even diseases that have spread freely in the human population, such as ebola, tuberculosis, HIV, measles, and smallpox, have their roots in infections carried by animals.

How do these pathogens emerge from their “normal” hosts and “spill over” into the human population? Which are most likely to spread within these populations? What can be done to prevent pathogens from emerging? Is there any way to put the “genie back in the bottle” if something has already spilled over into the human population?
