WHO Warns Against Mysterious Disease X

WHO Warns Against Mysterious Disease X

Despite its name, disease X is not spread around by one group of highly-gifted mutant children in both comic and film.

We do not know anything about it.

The World Health Organisation has revealed in a statement, a mysterious "Disease X", capable of causing a global pandemic in the future. The organization also wrote a warning for an "urgent need" that accelerated research and development for the diseases contained on the list.

The idea behind the fact that the Disease X is included on the list is not meant to frighten individuals, yet to goad public health authorities into ensuring that they are set up for all kinds of dangers, not only the anticipated ones.

But the mystery threat has not been placed on the list to scare the public. This new disease is still not made its way into the ecosphere but can be fatal if not treated at the right time. This is why it is on this list, prioritizing the main emerging pathogens that can cause serious epidemics in the near future.

Que la gente te pueda mirar, tener miedo a salir a la calle por vergüenza" explico Gomes , quien admitió que "me encierro en mi mismo.

The rest of the deceases which are listed in this category are known fatal pandemics as Ebola, Lassa Fever, CCHF hemorrhagic fever, Nipah / Henipaviral, MESS, SARS and Zika.

Marion Koopmans, WHO adviser, said, "The intensity of animal and human contact is becoming much greater as the world develops". By promoting awareness of this probability, it could stimulate research efforts to address the imminent threat, although it is still unknown.

"History tells us that it is likely the next big outbreak will be something we have not seen before", chief executive of the Research Council of Norway and World Health Organization adviser John-Arne Rottingen told The Telegraph. However, he stressed that this was to "make sure we prepare and plan flexibility in terms of vaccines and diagnostic tests".

According to Rottingen, Disease X could come from a variety of sources, although it was most likely developed through zoonotic transmission, where an infectious disease, which usually afflicted animals, jumped to humans. The health experts tell that when the outbreak will take place they can find the sequence of the virus that causes the disease and hence can switch the adequate sequence into the platforms that are being channelized for vaccination. Changing ecosystems and human habitats have the potential to see a transfer of animal diseases to humans. "It is vital that we are aware and prepare". It's probably the biggest risk. Travel and global trade spread new diseases quickly across the globe.
