How do viruses jump from animals to humans?

Title:
How do viruses jump from animals to humans?
Speaker:
Ben Longdon
Description:

At a Maryland country fair in 2017, farmers reported feverish hogs with inflamed eyes and running snouts. While farmers worried about the pigs, the department of health was concerned about a group of sick fairgoers. Soon, 40 of these attendees would be diagnosed with swine flu. How can pathogens from one species infect another, and what makes this jump so dangerous? Ben Longdon explains. [Directed by Cabong Studios, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Matheus Wittmann].
