New epidemic warning from the World Health Organization: ‘It will be transmitted by insects’

The World Health Organization, which continues its work within the United Nations, warned that a new disease that can be transmitted from creatures such as flies and ticks could become a global epidemic.

Explaining that diseases such as Zika and Dengue fever can cause a new pandemic, experts said, “Pathogens such as Zika virus can spread. Nearly 4 billion people live in regions where diseases can spread.

Explaining that arboviruses such as Zika, Dengue Fever and yellow fever can spread rapidly, the director of the Global Infectious Diseases Preparedness Team of the World Health Organization, Dr. Sylvie Briand said, “We have left two years behind in the Covid-19 epidemic and we have seen how unpreparedness affects such epidemics.”

Briand said, “We saw that with Sars in 2003, and with the influenza epidemic in 2009, such epidemics could come. It is very likely that the next pandemic will be from arboviruses. “There are also some signs of increased risk,” he said.

According to the news in Sözcü, Speaking at the opening of the World Health Organization’s Global Arbovirus Initiative, Briand said, “Zika outbreaks have occurred in 89 different countries since 2016, and yellow fever has been on the rise since the early 2000s.” Experts said that along with the yellow fever and Zika epidemic, a lesser known disease called Chikungunya is also causing concern.

One of the top names of the World Health Organization, Dr. Mike Ryan said, “We have to review the systems we have and follow the diseases closely.”
