Healthcare Researchers Reveal A Shocking Analysis: Humanity Is Not Ready For A New Epidemic!

-

The recent Ebola and Zika outbreaks caused thousands of people to lose their lives. Did we learn any lessons from these two epidemics? Are we ready for a new one? We're sure that scientists are doing their own research but how much are the politicians helping? Or even, what can we as people do to help prevent such a thing? Let's look at the research and find out more.

In recent years we have seen many cases of mass death due to epidemics.

Even more depressing, experts predict that the number of epidemics will increase in the coming years.

How much are we ready for a new epidemic? According to experts, almost none.

An enormous amount of analysis has been done: as of December 2016, more than 40 targeted examinations had been published, which largely agree on the priority actions. The global community has also launched several initiatives that begin to fill the identified gaps.

Yet, despite the great interest in ensuring progress, a clear picture of what has actually been achieved is elusive.

In August 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa a public health emergency of international concern, and the world scrambled to respond. Better preparedness and a faster, more coordinated response could have prevented most of the 11,000 deaths directly attributed to Ebola and also the broader economic, social, and health crises that ensued.

According to experts, however, humanity is still very slow to intervene in epidemic diseases.

Although dozens of studies from the 2014 Ebola epidemic have been published consecutively, we are delayed in taking precautions, according to experts, we will experience the same fate in new epidemics.

The teams at work are saying that what they need is adequate political and financial support.

They say: "Globally, all communities should increase economic support so that the resources needed to develop epidemic monitoring mechanisms can be improved."

How can an epidemic disease be controlled step-by-step in ideal conditions?

According to experts, the first thing to do is early detection. Even after it spreads, the small changes in the frequency of sightings should be kept under control and the research should start immediately.

The next step is to get patients into quarantine to isolate them from the society after identification of the disease and the virus.

At this point, the importance of having clear protocols is emphasized, and these clear protocols play a key role in the very fast start of treatment.

According to experts, some countries already have all of these preparations.

In Australia, for example, possible outbreaks can be prevented early on by very early diagnosis. But undeveloped countries are at great risk. Especially Southeast Asia, South Asia, West Africa and South America are shown as regions where new outbreaks can easily occur. 

To sum up, as humanity, we are not ready for a new epidemic. Let's hope that measures can be taken as soon as possible ...
