Scientists warn of mysterious and deadly new epidemic called Disease X that could kill millions around the world

Tim Wyatt – March 10, 2018

An unknown and deadly new illness dubbed Disease X has been added to the list of potential global epidemics that could kill millions.

Each year scientists with the World Health Organisation (WHO) create a list of the most likely diseases to break out into a worldwide pandemic.

This year, among the familiar Ebola, SARS, and Zika viruses is the new name of Disease X.

And unlike the other pathogens, it is not known what causes Disease X or how doctors could try to treat it.

Researchers said that they added Disease X to the threat list to recognize the fact that the next deadly pandemic could be started by an illness that has not caused any problems before.
