"In recent years, climatic factors have made various mainly zoonotic and vector-borne agents, known as emerging or re-emerging agents, the most important causes of disease worldwide. Arboviruses are one of the most important groups. Arboviruses (arthropod-borne viruses), such as West Nile Virus (WNV), Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus (CCHF), Sand Fly Fever Virus (SFV) and Dengue Virus, are transmitted biologically among vertebrate hosts by blood-taking vectors, such as mosquito, tick, midge and sandfly arthropods.
"While Arboviruses are globally distributed, the majority are found in tropical and subtropical regions. In the past two decades, Arbovirus activity and epidemics have increased worldwide. Arboviruses’ changing global demographic structure has played a major role in changing the distribution dynamics of Arboviruses diseases. Generally, the human population is exposed to Arbovirus infections when people travel or migrate to rural areas. Recent changes in global climate and other human, epidemiological and genetic factors have increased the need to gather more new data about the emergence of arthropod borne viruses.
