The biggest risk comes from pathogens that circulate in animals making the jump into humans. As COVID-19 has demonstrated, once someone is infected in one part of the world, trade and travel will rapidly carry the virus nearly everywhere else. Assessing which pathogens are most likely to make the jump enables us to prepare vaccines and treatments. ...
To develop the tools required to tackle a pandemic, such as diagnostic tests, vaccines and therapeutics, we must know what we are fighting. It is crucial that we quickly obtain and share the genetic sequences of viruses as they emerge. This was done remarkably well with SARS-CoV-2 — not only for the original sequencing in China, but also for subseq...
Swine flu, COVID-19 and monkeypox have shown that the model of charitable donations of vaccines from wealthier countries does not work. This leads to vaccine inequality: high-income countries control access to the bulk of supply, and low-income countries get very little. COVID-19 revealed the fragility of vaccine production. The world is heavily de...
Vaccination is essential to beating viral pandemics. If vaccines are ready in advance, they can be quickly deployed when threats emerge to help contain the spread. For pathogens with known pandemic potential, such as influenza, governments should invest in vaccines that can protect against a wide variety of variants. Clinical trials of universal fl...
Finally, governments must abandon the idea that spread of a respiratory pathogen is inevitable. During the COVID-19 pandemic, countries such as Sweden and the United Kingdom dismissed the idea of a vaccine being ready quickly enough to protect the bulk of the population from infection. Yet multiple vaccines were created, trialled and approved in ro...
