More specifically, we’re concerned about transmission to wildlife and then persistence of the virus

Not surprisingly, many non-human primates are known to be, or are likely, susceptible to

In the antimicrobial stewardship area, there are a number of things that would be so easy to address (the “low hanging fruit”) but have received surprisingly little attention.
