A few days ago we´ve come across an article reporting that there´s a mysterious outbreak in the Province of Hubei, China. Obviously from an animal market. Within a very short time Peking has reacted quite dramatic, what we think, is absolutely alarming. Is the world at risk? Without screaming PANIC, we think yes.
At the end of 2019 the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in cooperation with the World Economic Forum as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted the so called Event 201. A high-level pandemic exercise in New York, NY. The Event201 illustrated areas where public and private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.
Maybe the Event201 is the newspaper of tomorrow. And there´s a pretty goof chance that this is the case.
The world has seen a growing number of epidemic events in the last years. in total about 200 events annually. These events are increasing, and they are disruptive to health, economies, and society as we can see right now. And this is just the beginning.
Experts have agree for a long time that it was only a matter of time before one of these epidemics becomes global—a pandemic with potentially catastrophic consequences. A severe pandemic, which becomes “Event 201,” would require reliable cooperation among several industries, national governments, and key international institutions.
The world might face the next pandemic sooner as you think!. Here you can find the video related to the Event201.
We keep on tracking what´s happening in China and keep you update.
