Potential Future Pandemics and Are We Prepared? [Infographic]

The potential for pandemics is probably one of the scariest predictions of the modern world. With so many unknown quantities even the World Health Organisation is urging people not to ignore the fact that sometime in the future a pandemic will kill between 80-90 million people.

There are plenty of theories and hypothetical situations about just where a potentially deadly virus will come from and the possible devastation it will cause. Scientists are preparing and working on vaccines that may be needed should there be a global pandemic outbreak, with The World Health Organisation Global Vaccine Plan already in place.

In the infographic below we look at a few of the potential future global pandemics. We outline how pandemics are spread via human-to-human contact, along with airborne, animal and water transmissions.

The piece also includes information on signs and symptoms to be aware of and when to seek medical attention should you develop flu-like symptoms. We’ve added suggestions and tips on how you can reduce your chances of catching and spreading potentially deadly germs using a common sense approach to hygiene if you develop a runny nose, a cough or the sneezes.

So, read on to find out more about Future Pandemics and how best to help prevent and guard against them.
