On Sunday’s Outbreak News This Week Radio Show, I take a look at the new review in the Lancet Infectious Diseases concerning the resurgence of vector-borne diseases and the implications for spillover in the region, particularly looking at the topic of the malaria epidemic in the country.

I also look at the recent statement by FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb who said if states don’t require more schoolchildren to get vaccinated, the federal government might have to step in.

During the second half I play a portion of my Outbreak News TV interview with CIDRAP director, Dr Mike Osterholm.

The Outbreak News This Week Radio Show, the first and only radio program dedicated to infectious disease and health news and information, airs every Sunday at 1 pm ET in the Tampa Bay area on AM 1380 The Biz and online at http://1380thebiz.com/
