Another Pandemic As Deadly As Covid19 A

The death and chaos caused by the arrival of the SARS-CoV-2 virus brought the globe to an unprecedented standstill last year.

At the height of the coronavirus pandemic, hundreds of millions of people were forced to isolate, bringing entire industries to a grinding halt and putting a strain on economic growth and progress.

And if that was not terrifying enough, scientists are sounding the alarm bells on another deadly outbreak that could occur as early as 2078.

According to new research published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Covid-scale pandemics may be much more frequent than previously thought.

As of August 23, coronavirus has infected more than 211.7 million people and has claimed the lives of more than 4.43 million – the deadliest viral outbreak of the century.

But a statistical analysis of historical records over the last 400 years shows deadly outbreaks of new diseases are not exactly rare.

In this century alone, there have been three outbreaks of coronavirus-related diseases, with the SARS and MERS virus in 2002 and 2012, respectively.
