Bird flu alert!


It is impossible to predict how lethal the pandemic strain might be, so we can only guess how many people might die in the next pandemic.

LAGOS— It is impossible to predict how lethal the pandemic strain might be, so we can only guess how many people might die in the next pandemic. During past pandemics, the numbers of deaths varied greatly: in 1918, approximately 40 million people died, in 1957, more than two million people died, and in 1968, approximately one million people died.

Modelling research using today’s global population has projected that at a minimum, between two million and 7.4 million people might die in the next pandemic. Higher projections of deaths are in general based on extrapolations from the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic.
