Major pandemics and epidemics involved bacterial infectious diseases such as plague, cholera, or tuberculosis since past centuries, and viral infectious diseases such as flu and the most recently COVID-19 which emerged at the end of 2019, spread globally, and caused millions of deaths. Many infectious diseases leading to pandemics are caused by zoonotic pathogens, originating from an animal source (livestock, wildlife, or companion animals). In addition, some of them may be transmitted to humans through intermediate hosts such as arthropods, which allow them to be grouped as vector-borne and zoonotic infectious diseases. The present Research Topic, consisting of 36 published articles, provides an overview of recent developments in the field of bacterial, viral, parasitic, and fungal infectious diseases. This overview can be structured according to the type of infectious agent concerned, i.e., mainly bacterial, viral, or fungal, and in the order of importance according to the number of articles published for each infectious agent type. It also reflects the current content of the section Infectious Agents and Disease of Frontiers in Microbiology. La aparición y propagación de enfermedades infecciosas con potencial pandémico se ha producido a lo largo de la historia de la humanidad y ha sido revisada recientemente en la sección Agentes Infecciosos y Enfermedades de Piret y Boivin (2021). Las principales pandemias y epidemias involucraron enfermedades infecciosas bacterianas como la peste, el cólera o la tuberculosis desde siglos pasados, y enfermedades infecciosas virales como la gripe y la más reciente COVID-19 que surgió a finales de 2019, se propagó globalmente y causó millones de muertes. Muchas enfermedades infecciosas que conducen a pandemias son causadas por patógenos zoonóticos, originados en una fuente animal (ganado, fauna silvestre o animales de compañía). Además, algunas de ellas pueden transmitirse al ser humano a través de huéspedes intermediarios como los artrópodos, lo que permite agruparlas como enfermedades infecciosas transmitidas por vectores y zoonóticas. El presente Tema de Investigación, compuesto por 36 artículos publicados, ofrece una visión de conjunto de los últimos avances en el campo de las enfermedades infecciosas bacterianas, víricas, parasitarias y fúngicas. Esta visión de conjunto puede estructurarse en función del tipo de agente infeccioso de que se trate, es decir, principalmente bacteriano, vírico o fúngico, y en orden de importancia según el número de artículos publicados para cada tipo de agente infeccioso. También refleja el contenido actual de la sección Infectious Agents and Disease de Frontiers in Microbiology.
