Pandemic and epidemic diseases

A severe pandemic could kill millions and costs trillions of dollars Pandemic refers to an infectious disease that spreads globally and causes mortality on a significant scale. A disease is considered epidemic when the number of cases rises above what would normally be expected in a given area. Epidemics have posed a perpetual threat to human health throughout history. In spite of remarkable advances in infectious disease prevention, control and treatment, epidemics still continue to threaten populations as new diseases emerge and some old ones return. While most epidemics involve an infectious cause, changing behavior patterns have led to epidemic levels of some chronic diseases. There have been innumerable outbreaks of serious infectious diseases across the globe. It is expected that a few diseases might cause severe epidemics. They include Ebola, Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever, Lassa fever, Rift Valley fever, Chikungunya, Zika, Marburg, and SARS.
