It is of great significance to estimate the urban cycle area and thesylvatic cyclearea ofZIKVworldwide and predict its future trends based on observed records, historical “bioclimatic” variables, population data, and estimated vector distribution data.

ZIKV has been expanded in 86 countries. There was much evidence that supported the linkage between sylvatic circulation and urban circulation.

The results of this research indicate that 16.6% of the world’s landmass (except Antarctica) is a risk area. Approximately 6.22 billion people (78.69% of the global population) live in the risk area, with the vast majority in South Asia, central Africa, South America, North America, and countries around the Mediterranean Sea. The sylvatic cycle happens between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. The overlap region of the urban and sylvatic cycles could be hotpots that ZIKV spill from the sylvatic cycle to the urban cycle.

Future climate change decreases the risk area of ZIKV. However, the results of this research indicate that long-term passenger screening, mosquito surveillance, and control are still necessary.

Testimonios

We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.
Ben Deighton, SciDevNet
AlphaGalileo is a great source of global research news. I use it regularly.
