WHO unveils its list of 11 Risks of future disease outbreaks Stress preparedness

On May 26, reporters reported that the Facebook page medical genome center Ramathibodi Hospital has said that the world is not yet prepared for the next pandemic. which could be more serious than COVID-19, in a speech to the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland on May 23, 2023 with 194 participating member states.

WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the world had been “shocked” by the outbreak of COVID-19. from not preparing for the epidemic and “we must not be careless again”
Dr. Tedros cites several reasons the world is currently unprepared for the next pandemic, including: the lack of a global early warning system for pandemics; Shortages of vaccines and other medical supplies
Lack of international coordination in dealing with the epidemic. by calling on countries to take steps to prepare for the next pandemic, including investing in early warning systems around the world.
Build a global stockpile of vaccines and other medicines, improve international coordination in response to the epidemic.

The World Health Organization is currently updating the list of 10 pathogens that could cause epidemics and pandemics caused by viral infections in the future. with another infectious disease called disease X, viz
1. Coronavirus 2019 (SARS-CoV-2) 2. Crimea-Kong hemorrhagic fever virus 3. Ebola virus 4. Marburg virus 5. Lassa fever 6. Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) 7. Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus Severe (SARS-CoV) 8. Nipah virus 9. Zika Rift Valley fever virus 11. Disease X Disease X is used to refer to an unknown disease caused by infection with any type of virus or organism. This could cause a serious international epidemic.

All 10 of these diseases are vector-borne viral diseases. or a disease nesting in animals such as bats, rodents, monkeys or mosquitoes, etc. This means that it is more difficult to contain or control the spread of these infectious diseases in animals than viruses that are contagious to humans, such as the smallpox virus. and polio virus The World Health Organization is working to develop vaccines and antiretroviral therapies for these diseases. But it is important to remember that there is no guarantee that these diseases will not cause outbreaks in the future. The best way to prepare for a pandemic is to invest in early warning systems and stockpiles of vaccines and other medicines. Countries should work together to improve co-ordination in response to a pandemic.
