This is supposed to be a diseases template (per name, title, category, etc.), but lately the emphasis seems to have shifted away from diseases to virology.
I think we should move it back to dealing with diseases (i.e. disease first), group items by disease characteristics (vector grouping is fine, but then group by disease type - e.g. viral hemoragic fever, remove taxonomic information on the causative organism - too much information).
If want to keep the focus on viruses, then the name, title, category, color scheme, etc. should be changed to make it a virology template (e.g. Zoonotic viruses that affect humans.) Zodon (talk) 00:53, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Sandfly fever Naples virus was listed under both tick-borne and sandfly-borne. Is there any evidence it can be transmitted by ticks? Also should Sandfly fever Sicilian virus be on here? Mthoma15 (talk) 04:44, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
