Sometimes there are infectious diseases that have long since been defeated, such as measles or polio, sometimes they are new, unknown pathogens such as Zika or Sars.

The WHO is challenged again – also in the case of the unknown corona virus from Wuhan, which has apparently been transmitted back to humans from wild animals and can cause a fatal lung disease.

Back then almost a thousand people died. A lot has improved since then: The WHO expressly praises China, which reacted much faster 17 years after Sars and was much better prepared for a possible pandemic. At the same time, our world has become more complex: The population of the metropolitan areas, especially in Asia, has grown explosively, people and goods are constantly traveling by ship or plane.

Viruses have it even easier to spread quickly and across the globe. In this respect, the global community as a whole is challenged and must act decisively before the Wuhan virus can trigger the next pandemic – after the swine flu in 2009.
