An epidemic among wildlife has drawn the attention of hunters and politicians across the region. But the scientific understanding of that illness, and its potential threat to human health, is often misrepresented. This investigation found that the disease is spreading quickly, ongoing research is quantifying just how many strains there are, and the more strains, the higher the chance that it could turn into something that could affect other animals including humans. The investigation also found some holes in a study that is often cited as evidence that the disease can infect primates. As the series was being reported, a case was detected in Sweden for the first time, adding it to the list of affected countries.
