The Belt and Road of Animal Diseases

About this Research Topic

The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese government in 2013. This investment and infrastructure development strategy drives the world's economic development. However, this initiative has resulted in an increase in transnational spread of animal diseases, which caused a significant economic loss to the global animal industry. For example, in 2013, Peste des petits ruminant virus entered China; in 2015, a Senecavirus A outbreak occurred in China; in 2018-19, African swine fever virus swept into east Asia and Southeast Asia; in 2019; lumpy skin disease virus emerged in China; in 2013, Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea was found in the United States. Strategies to avoid or reduce transnational spread of animal diseases is an important issue, which can be approached by rapid virus detection, viral genomics, epidemiology, scientific popularization of disease knowledge, combating smuggling activities, border trade control and wildlife management.

The aim of this Research Topic is to offer an opportunity to collect the newest research and development in the field of "The Belt and Road" of Animal Diseases. Early warning, virus detection, genetic evolution, disseminating disease knowledge, combating smuggling activities, border trade control (among others) are topics that we aim to explore.

We welcome the following article submissions:
• Original Research
• Reviews
• Short Report
• Short Communication
• Case Reports


Keywords: Transboundary animal infectious disease, Peste des petits ruminants virus, African swine fever virus, Lumpy skin disease virus, Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
