Global Health Council President Jonathan Quick, who gives medical classes at Harvard University, warns that an insidious disease called Australian flu can cause 300 million people to lose their lives.
Global Health Council President Jonathan Quick warned about a new epidemic named "Australian flu". Leading the various projects at the World Health Organization (WHO) and teaching at the University of Harvard, the US physician noted that the virus that passed from humans through animals was sneaky in the body and had deadly consequences after the fourth day. If the measure is not taken within the next 200 days 33 million, two years 300 million people can lose their lives because of the virus explained.
"I believe we are under the risk of a viral pandemic with more lethal consequences than anything we have previously thought of as dangerous," Quick said. "The Spanish infant seen in 1918 affected a third of the world's population and caused 100 million people to die, as it was. We now have the same vulnerability to diseases 100 years ago, "using emphasis on preventive measures.
IMPORTANT TO BE EVIDENCE AND BEWARE OF ANIMAL FOOD
Quick said that in order to be protected from the disease, cheap and processed animal food consumption should be avoided first.
Experts say that the first ring of viruses that cause epidemics is wild waterfowl where bird flu is common. Then the virus of a wild bird passes to another bird and then to the animals that eat it. Hosts in different species can become extremely deadly and contagious by interchanging the virus.
On the other hand, "As a doctor I know that there is no more effective and cheap public health tool that protects people from illnesses until they are vaccinated," he noted.
