Press Release

The World Health Organization (WHO) warns that a global flu epidemic is on its way. WHO on Monday alerted governments around the world to be prepared to contain the coming flu crisis. The international health body warned that no governments should underestimate the far-reaching impacts of the approaching flu epidemic.

According to WHO, the approaching influenza pandemic may occur any moment and there is no doubts about this. It is a matter of when, and not necessary of if, WHO warned. Apart from the fact that national governments need to prepare ahead for the flu outbreak, WHO has its own plans to contain the deadly viral disease.

Costs of Flu Outbreak Outweigh the Price of Prevention

WHO’s director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, cautioned that global leaders must remain proactive in the face of the coming flu epidemic. He noted that the threat of pandemic influenza is ever-present and cannot go away. It is a viral disease that always comes with the season.

“We must be vigilant and prepared – the cost of a major influenza outbreak will far outweigh the price of prevention,” Ghebreyesus said.

The last global flu pandemic occurred in 2009 and 2010. It was triggered by the H1N1 viral strain of the disease. According to statistics, about one in five people around the world was infected with the flu outbreak in 2009-2010. Thousands of people died from the infection too.

WHO and international health experts warn that flu will take on a different ferocity in the future. They warn the disease will become more deadly and even transmit from animals to humans. They warn that flu strains will mutate faster and become more potent, infecting millions of people around the world and killing thousands.

There are various flu strains out there. They are not stable and continue to mutate, becoming deadlier and claiming more lives. During seasonal outbreaks, up to one billion people are infected worldwide. About 3 to 5 million cases are often severe, requiring hospitalization and critical medical attention. But then, between 290,000 to 650,000 people die from respiratory complications occasioned by the disease during the peak period.

Vaccines and Antiviral Drugs Are the Two Most Effective Ways to Survive Flu Epidemics

The people most vulnerable to flu are children, aged people and people with compromised immunity. Health workers are also prone to the disease during the flu season. WHO recommends that people get vaccinated for the disease every year. Getting flu shots enables vaccinated people to fight the disease during any epidemics, leading to lower death rates across the United States and around the world.

WHO revealed it has the most comprehensive action plan to counter any potential devastations caused by the approaching flu. This plan involves protecting people from any potential flu infection, and setting up measures to contain the disease in the case of an epidemic.

While the WHO plan will increase global response and surveillance for flu pandemics, each country must also be able to develop a flu plan aimed at preventing, detecting, tracking and treating flu infections. Even at these, vaccines and antiviral drugs remain the most effective ways to deal any flu infection.
