Every survivalist understands the threat of a deadly pandemic.
A lot of energy goes into preparing for that frightening possibility.
And one new report gave a chilling warning about the threat of a global pandemic.
The Global Preparedness Monitoring Board, a project commissioned by the World Bank and the World Health Organization, released a report that said there’s a tangible threat of a fast-moving, deadly airborne pandemic that could kill “50 to 80 million people,” and could wipe out “nearly 5% of the world’s economy.”
The report also warned that global governments are “not prepared” for such a terrifying possibility.
World governments are too concerned with controlling the citizenry instead of fulfilling one of their actual duties which is to protect their citizens.
A pandemic on that scale would cause major instability and send all types of ripple effects throughout the world.
The next terrifying pandemic could come in different forms.
Most people are familiar with the Ebola virus, which has a lethality rate of 50%, and the number is even higher in some particularly impoverished areas.
Ebola outbreaks have ravaged populations in several African countries, including the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The WHO reported over 1,200 incidents in the DRC with a death rate of 70%.
With unvetted illegal aliens traveling from countries like the DRC and showing up in South America and Mexico, the possibility of more Ebola cases in North America is likely.
The rise of antibiotic-resistant viruses is also a threat that looms large.
Overuse of antibiotics for common illnesses and certain pesticides have caused more superbugs to emerge.
A superbug called Candida Auris recently caused havoc in hospitals and nursing homes in the northeast.
- Auris is so virulent, traces of it were found in hospital rooms even after extensive cleaning efforts.
Some of the installations had to be stripped from the room because it was the only way to eradicate the superbug from the hospital.
There are all kinds of potential superbugs that threaten us that we don’t even know about, and we haven’t yet figured out how to defeat them.
And then something as common as the flu could do significant damage.
A CDC report showed that the flu was responsible for 80,000 deaths in 2017, which is almost five times the murder rate.
Previous flu outbreaks have caused mass death around the world.
The Spanish Flu of 1918 killed 50-100 million people, the Asian Flu of 1957 and 1968 killed a combined 6 million people, and the Swine Flu epidemic of 2009 killed nearly 600,000 people.
The threat of a pandemic is real, and the GPMB report proves it.
It’s imperative that you take precautions to be prepared for such an eventuality.
Stay stocked up on supplies, and make sure your first-aid capabilities are up to snuff.
The last thing you want to do is be reliant on the state if something catastrophic occurs.
