[Autom. eng. transl.] "It is the time to close the book of infectious diseases". The unfortunate claim, believed to date back to 1967 and that has long been improperly attributed to U.S. Surgeon General William H. Stewart, 1 celebrated the successes of antibiotics and vaccines, which had wiped out infectious diseases. Even though today it lacks paternity, the phrase nevertheless reflected a widespread feeling, which would not be long in proving incautious. In the early eighties, the chapter of HIV infection opened, which in 2000 Science would have not only linked to several possible triggers in central Africa, but also dated back to the mid-twentieth century.2 And the series would continue with SARS, H1N1, H5N1, Ebola, Mers and others.
