Airfinity presents a new risk model at the Rhodes Summit in London on Friday 14th, which enunciates a well-built pandemic defence mechanism can reduce the chances of another COVID-19-like pandemic which has 27.5% to 8% prospects of happening in the next 10 years. According to this model, nearly three times as many deaths—more than 300.000 thousand—would have occurred in the UK alone if the original COVID-19 wild type had been as contagious as Omicron. It depicts that in a worst-case scenario imagined, an avian flu-type mutation that transmits from human to human could kill as many as 15.000 in a single day in the UK. The model exhibits the odds of future pandemics under varying degrees of severity. “In recent times, the world has witnessed a rapid increase in the frequency of virus emergence. Climate change, the rise in international travel, a growing global population, and the increasing threat posed by zoonotic diseases are some of the main factors contributing to the increase in high-risk outbreak incidences.” Says reports.

The modeling says, With these precautions in place, the fortuity of happening of a pandemic in the upcoming 10 years decreases by 71%. A pandemic as lethal as COVID-19 is less likely to occur in the following decade if effective vaccines are distributed 100 days after the identification of a new virus. “However, many high-risk pathogens including Zika, MERS and Marburg virus don’t have approved vaccines or treatments, and existing surveillance policies are unlikely to detect a new pandemic before it is too late. This highlights the urgent need for new and data-driven pandemic preparedness measures.” Says report. Airfinity’s CEO and co-founder Rasmus Bech Hansen says, “A robust pandemic preparedness system is the world’s insurance against a COVID-19-like pandemic or something even worse. We have calculated the real risks, but also the potential risk reduction that can be achieved. This can help inform decision-makers to the level of ongoing pre-emptive investment in the space to keep people safe.”OTTIndia updates you with the latest news, Country's no.1 digital news platform OTTIndia, Keeps you updated with national, and international news from all around the world.
