Track 19: Acute Viral Diseases
Emerging irresistible infections are defined as infections that have recently appeared in a population, are becoming more frequent or widespread geographically, or are taking measures to do so. The World Health Organization cautioned in a report from 2007 that infectious diseases are spreading at an unusually rapid rate. Since the 1970s, over 40 infectious diseases have been discovered, including COVID-19, which is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 Covid, SARS, MERS, Ebola, Chikungunya, and avian, pig, and Zika influenza. Traveling more frequently and over longer distances than before, living in more densely populated areas, and coming into closer contact with wild animals all increase the risk of new infectious diseases spreading quickly and causing widespread pandemics, which is a serious issue. Such diseases don't pay much attention to waiting in queues. As potential plague or pandemic causes, the small number of organisms capable of effective human-to-human transmission might raise substantial public and global concerns. They may provide a range of financial, cultural, and healing effects.
