WHO estimates that 20 times more deadly viruses are coming than the 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic. Healthcare professionals in the UK have already started preparing for a deadly pandemic called “Disease X”, which is far more deadly than covid 19. According to WHO estimates, this disease X can take a very serious form, which can cause up to 50 million people to die. (Another new threat after the Covid-19 disease, UK’s World Health Organization warns.)
Since covid 19 has become a more common and recurring health problem. UK medical experts have already started preparing against the pandemic. They issued a warning that the devastating Spanish flu of 1918 to 1920 could be comparable to the effects of Disease X. If you turn the pages of history, you will know how long-lasting, deadly, and painful the effects of the Spanish flu were.
No symptoms of disease X have been detected yet. According to the World Health Organization, this disease can be spread by any sick person. The disease can spread especially through respiratory infections.
- Respiratory infection.
Reason of disease X
Disease X is one of the pandemic threats. Who declared disease X represents the knowledge that can be caused by a serious international epidermal pathogen that is currently unknown as a cause of human disease and that list includes infections or disorders without drug treatment.
According to WHO’s opinion, the factors which have been determined are:
Climate change has been a key factor in the rise of Disease X. As global temperatures continue to rise, ecosystems are being disrupted and wildlife is moving into human settlements to seek shelter. As a result, the virus spreads rapidly from animals to humans, resulting in one epidemic after another.
The progress of various pathogenic viruses is increasing day by day through the expansion of areas in cities or deforestation. Overpopulation also increases the risk of any disease spreading quickly.
The causes of disease X are not yet known but these two factors can be considered as possible causes. These two factors are not only for disease X but any virus can cause it.
Disease X prevention
Several measures can be taken to prevent the spread of disease X. Primary among them are detection, control, and mitigation.
International guidelines :
International guidelines need to be developed and implemented to control the spread of pathogen X across borders. International travel restrictions and screening protocols should be in place at airports.
Testing and monitoring:
Surveillance systems should be in place to detect potential threats early. Timely detection and isolation of cases are crucial for effective outbreak control.
Access to medical care:
Focus efforts on accelerating the availability of immediate medical care including test kits, vaccines, and first aid.
Research and development:
Prioritize research on preventive aspects especially developing and researching vaccines.
How to stop Disease X before it starts?
It has become very difficult to stop an epidemic like Corona. Disease X will be difficult to stop, so we need to take steps to prevent it before it starts.
- Invest in surveillance.
- Boost the immune system and improve health.
- Use of antibiotics.
- Plan pandemic preparedness.
How can we be aware of disease X?
Awareness messages should be issued worldwide not just in the UK and everyone should take responsibility for their vigilance.
By maintaining cleanliness and distance, you can keep yourself away from the spread of infection. The WHO-issued coronavirus guidelines on the COVID-19 Pandemic around the world. If you follow the rules from now on, you can get rid of this deadly disease.
