Experts say that the world can not withstand another flu pandemic, they predict the death of 33 million people.

The researchers urge to begin preparing for this situation now. It is necessary to begin the production of vaccines, which may require up to 8 billion doses. In addition, it is necessary to predict and study the strains.

Scientists point out that influenza can be stronger even than the legendary Spanish flu (1918-1920s).

The report states that flu pandemics have happened before. However, given the global climate changes that have occurred over the years, the risk of a pandemic is much higher, especially given COVID-19, which scientists around the world have been unable to defeat for two years.
