What is Disease X? World Economic Forum To Discuss Health Threat

(CTN News) – WWF 2024 started Monday (Jan 15) in Davos, Switzerland. Disease X is a mysterious illness caused by an unknown microbial threat that’s set to be discussed at the forum. A WHO panel will discuss the health threat at the WEF on Wednesday, Forbes reports.

Describe Disease X in a few words.

This illness is caused by an unknown, yet serious microbial threat that is causing the illness. Aside from Ebola and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Disease X was listed as a priority disease by the World Health Organization (WHO) on the list of pathogens that need to be studied urgently in 2017.

Disease X and its significance

According to the WHO, studying Disease X will help prepare for an unknown disease through cross-cutting R&D (research and development). As a result of Ebola, Covid, and other illnesses, the global humanitarian crisis has been a wake-up call.

Ebola killed thousands of people worldwide. According to News, no products were ready to save these lives despite decades of research.

A R&D Blueprint has been developed by the WHO as a result of this.

What are the current priority pathogens?

The WHO’s current list of priority diseases includes Covid, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, Ebola and Marburg viruses, Lassa fever, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and SARS, Nipah and henipaviral diseases, Rift Valley fever, Zika and Disease X.
