The report, titled "A Safer Future," says that never before have new diseases developed at such a high rate, averaging more than one per year. Since the 1970s, the WHO has identified 39 new diseases, including Ebola, SARS, bird flu, Nipahvirus and Marburg hemorrhagic fever.

Oh.. it's that bad is it?

So what can we all do? Sit in doors all day and not interact with anyone, ever?

Stop all business and holiday flights? Stop the shipment of goods that may contain/carry contaminated animals or the diseases themselves?

Where do we draw the line and decide to find effective genuine ways to stop an outbreak?

Pharmaceutical companies need not apply .... you've proven your worth by the profits you make and not by those you've saved.
