Last week I was watching this thing on the Asian Bird Flew and they said that if it mutates into an air born illness that is able to be passed from human to human, it could be the worst global epidemic in history and could have the potential to kill a percentage of the worlds population. Possibly 100 million people, if not more.
It has people at the CDC and other heath organizations around the world on high alert because the symptoms are much like the regular flu, until it is too late to do anything.
This got me wondering about the future of the world and these heath epidemics. I wonder about what is out there that we don’t know about. There could be things in remote areas of the world that have something that could wipe out good portions of the population.
What are your thoughts on these worst case scenario epidemics?
