The World Health Organization has already given the name ‘Disease X’ to this virus. It is estimated that this virus is more deadly than the Covid-19 virus and can create a new pandemic.
Kate Bingham, who was the head of Britain’s vaccine task force, has given comprehensive information about this virus, and Kate’s interview has been published in The Daily Mail. He said that this new virus will attack in the same way as the Spanish flu that swept the world in 1919-20. Kate said that ‘Disease X’ is a new type of pathogen, which can be any form of virus, bacteria or fungus. Above all there is no cure available to fight against ‘Disease X’.
The Spanish flu which started in 1918 ended in 1920. This virus killed a total of 5 crore people worldwide. Twice as many people died from this disease as died in the First World War. Now ‘Disease X’ can be spread in a similar fashion. Kate Bingham speculates that any virus that is already in circulation could cause this type of Pandemic.
Kate said that in order to effectively fight against ‘Disease X’, a vaccine should be found as soon as possible and it should be supplied worldwide in record time and a vaccination campaign should be carried out.
Our scientists have so far identified only 25 virus families worldwide. However, there are more than 10 lakh virus subspecies and no work has been done to identify them. Some of these viruses have the ability to spread very easily from one biodiversity to another, Kate said.
2 crore people have lost their lives worldwide so far due to covid. But there is a comforting factor in the case of Covid. That is, most of the covid patients are cured. But ‘Disease X’ can be as deadly as Ebola. Because the death rate of Ebola disease is It was 67 percent. If the death rate of ‘Disease X’ infection is high, this germ will be a challenge to the human race.
