Abstract

The emergence of a new viral disease is one of the most dramatic aspects of virology, which often receives widespread attention from the scientific community and the lay public. Considering that the discipline of animal virology was established over 100. years ago, it may seem surprising that new virus diseases are still being discovered. How this happens is the subject of this chapter.
