Round table “Disease X”

Round table “Disease X”

“Disease X” is an abstract disease that has the potential to cause an epidemic on an international scale. It is believed that such an epidemic is most likely to be caused by a pathogen unknown to mankind. This term was adopted by the World Health Organization in February 2018 for a list of pathogens and diseases requiring urgent development of drugs or treatments. On February 2, interns of group 611, together with teachers S.B. Maukayeva and G.I. Nuralinova, held a round table for infectious disease doctors, 5th year students studying for infection. The lecture revealed the problems of preparing for future pandemics, the need to mobilize the efforts of the international community to prepare for pandemics.
