What experts have to say about future pandemics

Experts in many scientific fields have spoken openly about the possibility of other pandemics.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, experts have warned about the frequency of pandemics around the world as well as possible reasons for an increase in disease outbreaks.

“The time between these outbreaks is getting shorter and shorter,” said Dr. Tracy McNamara, a professor of pathology at Western University’s Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine. ABC News report from 2020

Dr Peter Daszak, president of the EcoHealth Alliance, said: “We have only been able to sustain an outbreak once every decade. The rate at which we are going is not sustainable.”

Dr. John Brownstein, an epidemiologist, and Boston Children’s Hospital’s chief innovation officer, added possible reasons for the increase in the outbreak.

“Several epidemiological drivers have been identified that enable bacteria and viruses to emerge from animal populations into susceptible populations.

“These drivers include climate change, industrial development, ecosystem change, and social inequality.”

Recently, the 2022 report from the publication France 24World Health Organization (WHO) emergencies director Michael Ryan said monkeypox is not the only example of the disease seeing a resurgence.

“The number of times these diseases cross into humans is increasing,” he said. “Then our ability to escalate that disease and move it within our communities is increasing.”

Greg Albery, a disease ecologist at Georgetown University, also spoke of the importance of funding to support the surveillance and research needed to identify threats.

“We need better monitoring in both urban and wild animals so that we can identify when a pathogen has jumped from one species to another,” he said.

“And if the receiving host is urban or close to humans, we should be particularly concerned.”
