Should we be ready with Respirator Gas Masks for the next pandemic?

Are you ready for the next pandemic? When no cloth face mask will work. No N95 Respirator will work. No social distancing will work. No physical distancing will work. No lockdown will work. No lockup will work.

Since 2000, we are under constant threat of several pandemic outbreaks.

In 2002-2004, about 774 people died worldwide by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

The flu pandemic, aka the Swine Flu or H1N1/09 virus, took 151,700 to 575,400 lives worldwide during 2009-2010.

Origin of 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic

COVID-19

31 December 2019, a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown cause was reported by health authorities in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, China, and an investigation was launched in early January 2020. These cases mostly had links to the “Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market”, which also sold live animals, consequently the “virus” is thought to have a zoonotic origin. The virus that caused the outbreak is known as SARS-CoV-2, a new virus that is closely related to bat coronaviruses, pangolin coronaviruses and SARS-CoV. It is believed that the virus possibly originated in bats of the Rhinolophus genus.

Viruses – A big threat to mankind

COVID-19

Throughout history, there have been a number of pandemics, such as smallpox and tuberculosis. One of the most devastating pandemics was the “Black Death,” which killed an estimated 75–200 million people in the 14th century. The only two current pandemics are HIV/AIDS and “Coronavirus disease 2019”. The virus is thought to have an animal origin. Τhere has been a “continuous common source” of the outbreak in December 2019, which would imply that several animal-to-human zoonotic events occurred at the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market. The primary source of infection became human-to-human transmission in early January 2020. Throughout history, there have been a number of pandemics, such as smallpox and tuberculosis.
