Disease - X
Zitat:Disease X is a placeholder name that was adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO) in February 2018 on their shortlist list of blueprint priority diseases to represent a hypothetical, unknown pathogen that could cause a future epidemic.[4][5] The rationale was to ensure that WHO planning was sufficiently flexible to adapt to an unknown pathogen.[6][4] Experts noted that the concept of Disease X would encourage WHO projects to focus their research efforts on entire classes of various viruses (e.g. flaviviruses), instead of just individual strains (e.g. zika virus), so as to improve WHO capability to respond to unforeseen strains.[7] In 2020, it was speculated, including among WHO expert advisors, that the coronavirus disease (from the SARS-CoV-2 virus strain) met the requirements to be first Disease X.[1][2][3]
