Disease X News | World Health Organisation Dubbed A New Pandemic Disease X | English News | N18V
“Disease X is just an imaginary or hypothetical illness,” top scientists and experts have clarified following widespread circulation of reports about the illness on social media, leading many in the general public to believe it is a new ailment.
The new pandemic has been dubbed as ‘Disease X’ by the World Health Organisation (WHO). However, it caused the general public to mistakenly perceive it as a new post-Covid-19 disease.
Dr Anurag Agrawal, Dean, BioSciences and Health Research, Ashoka University, clarified that Disease X is “an imaginary scenario” of a new pathogen causing a new pandemic that is more severe than previous ones.
“There is no such pathogen immediately and the exercise is for conceptualising a suitable action plan against future threats,” he said.
