It’s been revealed that the next pandemic after covid 19 could be even more lethal than covid 19, according to what one of the AstraZeneca vaccine creators said.

On the other hand, it’s also important that the lessons learned from the outbreak “must not be squandered and the world should ensure it is prepared for the next viral onslaught”, one of the creators of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine said.

We should be better prepared for the next pandemic 

As the press agency Reuters said, the novel coronavirus has killed 5.26 million people across the world, according to Johns Hopkins Universit.

The pandemic wiped out trillions of dollars in economic output and turned life upside down for billions of people.

“The truth is, the next one could be worse. It could be more contagious, or more lethal, or both,” Sarah Gilbert said in the Richard Dimbleby Lecture, the BBC reported.

They also said:

“This will not be the last time a virus threatens our lives and our livelihoods.”

Gilbert, a professor of vaccinology at the University of Oxford, said the world should make sure it is better prepared for the next virus.

“The advances we have made, and the knowledge we have gained, must not be lost,” she said.

Anthony Fauci on covid pandemic 

It’s been reported that Anthony Fauci is accused of overhyping the covid pandemic. 

Did Fauci overhype the pandemic?

It’s been just reported that the health expert responded to claims made by Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) — namely that he was intentionally overhyping information about COVID-19 in an effort to keep Americans scared.

According to the latest reports, Fauci spoke with CNN anchor Jake Tapper on Sunday’s broadcast of “State of the Union,” and Tapper asked him to respond to Johnson’s claims that he was “overhyping” the coronavirus pandemic. Johnson likened to Fauci’s response to HIV/AIDS decades earlier – it’s with noting that he had “overhyped” that as well.
