World Economic Forum Prepares For Meeting on “Disease X”

The World Economic Forum will meet next week with representatives from pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca to prepare for “Disease X,” a hypothetical unknown threat that will require the mass deployment of new vaccines.

A panel of international speakers will convene for the conference, titled ‘Preparing for Disease X’, which wargames a strategy surrounding the outbreak of a virus 20 times deadlier than COVID.

The WHO is concerned about the potential for an “unknown pathogen that could cause a serious international epidemic” which is “currently unknown to cause human disease.”

Last year, the BBC reported that the UK government had already opened a research facility to prepare for the outbreak of ‘Disease X’.
