These viruses will be more deadly than Corona, can become an epidemic and create massacres, know what disease is called Disease X
Global concern about disease X has increased.
The head of the WHO has warned of the next pandemic.
New Delhi. Over the past few years, the world has seen the ravages of Corona. Around thousands of people have died due to the Corona virus. However, the terror of this epidemic which started from the year 2019 is now over to some extent and it has become possible because the scientists prepared the coronavirus vaccine. But in the midst of all this, the WHO (World Health Organization) has issued a warning about another new outbreak, which has been described as more dangerous than the corona virus.
Will disease X be more deadly than Corona?
After this warning, there was renewed interest in the list of “priority diseases” on the WHO website. A list has been released of possible causes for the next deadly pandemic, including Ebola, SARS and Zika. But in this list, one disease has increased everyone’s concern, the name of which is “Disease X”. According to the WHO website, this term represents any such serious international epidemic, of which nothing is yet known. That is to say, it has not made the man sick so far.
A virus, bacteria or fungus can be anything Disease X
It could be a new agent. virus, bacteria or fungus. Whatever. The WHO started using this term in 2018. Then a year ago Corona started spreading all over the world. Researcher Pranab Chatterjee, of the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, told the National Post that it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say Disease X isn’t far off.
Disease X can spread first in animals, then in humans
He pointed out that the recent wave of H5N1 bird flu cases in Cambodia is just one case among many. Disease X, like its predecessors Ebola, HIV/AIDS or the corona virus, could possibly originate in animals and then spread to humans, causing severe illness and increased mortality.
