This increased risk that we face, and the ways society and individuals can work together to reduce that risk, are explained to the public through the case studies of three epidemics: Ebola, influenza and Zika. Moving across the globe, we meet doctors, disease detectives and everyday people who have stepped into the horror of an epidemic and emerged deeply changed. Epidemics bring out the best and worst of human behavior, with effects reaching far beyond the tolls of sickness and death.

I haven't seen the movie but I do know the situation with epidemics is not as bad as it seems, and improving. Back in the 1980's HIV was a death sentence. Today that's no longer the case. A few years ago we were helpless against ebola. There are now vaccines and better methods of treatment. Cases or ebola are down, survivorship is up. Despite the fact that both your father and mine died of cancer, even there survivorship is much higher than it used to be, and slowly increasing as time passes. Some 12 years ago I survived cancer. If it had been 20 years earlier I would not be posting this message today.

What cancer did you have?
Concerning diseases spread by mosquitoes, I'm a bit pessimistic, because the effects of climate change will allow some species to go where they were not able to go before. Before 2008 there was no tiger mosquito in France.
For example, I was in the South of France this summer (actually somewhere between Lyon and Marseille), and I stumbled upon a tiger mosquito (I killed him so I was able to check that). I had never seen one before. some users of the forum like you, Maher or Vasudev probably know it already. They need warm climates but they are unable to live in the desert. With warmer Winters, they are rapidly spreading to Northern Europe and Northern America.

Esophageal. I felt some mild difficulty swallowing and at first thought nothing of it. Deciding to err on the side of caution, I went to the gastroenterologist where an endoscopy confirmed the results. I got 6 months of punishing chemotherapy followed by a month of intense radiation. The treatment was so severe I was hospitalized twice. In the end the tumor was eradicated and hasn't returned in 12 years. 20 years ago PET scans didn't exist. This meant the surgeon would have to cut me open and attempt to remove the tumor. This would not have worked in my case since the cancer was inoperable.

The Tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) is native to southeast Asia and is an invasive specie everywhere else. We all know what happens when a specie is inadvertently introduced to a place where it doesn't belong. History is rife with examples. Either way, I wouldn't be as pessimistic as you are. You know what happened to Ferdinand de Lesseps when he attempted to build the Panama Canal. Eventually the problem was solved and yellow fever eradicated. I've been to Panama twice and haven't seen a single mosquito. An even better example is South Florida. The Everglades are arguably the most mosquito-infested area in the world. It can't be sprayed because it would have an negative effect on the delicate environment. Despite this, the human population continues to grow and thrive.

Your survival rate was only 25%. You have been lucky.
My father has not been so lucky. I was a bit astonished to see that someone who is apparently healthy in October can be diagnosed with an advanced lung cancer in November and die 3 weeks later. But I found a similar case on the internet, here with user pol00lx: http://forum.doctissimo.fr/sante/cancers/cancer-poumon-foudroyant-sujet_158550_1.htm
Note that I'm wondering if sth has not happened to Maher (and to the users of the forum who have disappeared).

Maybe it's a bigger problems than mosquitos, indeed.

25% is 1 in 4. Somebody has to be the 1. Why not me? :)  Besides, keep in mind nobody dies until it's their time. It wasn't mine.

What's the secret to your fascination with monkeys, baboons in particular? 
I've never asked ;D
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said “Surah (chapter of) Hud and its sisters turned my hair gray"

Hud (11)

This baboon looks serene and intelligent. No wonder he was a God thousands years ago. And his haircut makes him look a bit funny.
Since nobody is posting photos on the forum, except me, you can be a bit flabbergasted when you discover it since it seems there are baboons everywhere.
But baboons are not to be taken lightly, with their sharp teeth they can be dangerous. However, they are much weaker than gorillas, who are very strong.
