Arizona State University: Machine learning identifies mammal species with the potential to spread SARS-CoV-2

Arizona State University: Machine learning identifies mammal species with the potential to spread SARS-CoV-2. “Back-and-forth transmission of SARS-CoV-2 between people and other mammals increases the risk of new variants and threatens efforts to control COVID-19. A new study, published today in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, used a novel modeling approach to predict the zoonotic capacity of 5,400 mammal species, extending predictive capacity by an order of magnitude. Of the high-risk species flagged, many live near people and in COVID-19 hot spots.”
