Web Desk: Even in the present era, there is no concrete cure for disease like Ebola, Zika and SARS for starters. Now it has become very necessary to deal with the disease before it kills millions of people across the world.

WHO claimed that a deadly new disease known as ‘Disease X’ could potentially wipe out millions of people across the world. The organization quoted, “Disease X represents the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease.”

This disease is known as Disease X, because it is ‘known unknown’ by itself. The X stands for the unexpected.

A CNN report affirmed, “Disease X represents the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease.”

“Just the way we didn’t anticipate Zika, we didn’t think there would be an Ebola that would hit cities.”

This disease is likely to combine with our environment just like the Spanish Flu and HIV. WHO Marion Koopman’s adviser quoted, “The intensity of animal and human contact is becoming much greater as the world develops.”

“This makes it more likely new diseases will emerge, but also modern travel and trade make it much more likely they will spread.”
