We may feel safe, because we have access to modern medicine now, but it wasn’t always so. In the past, infections that right now seem to us like mere nuisances killed many people. No, I don’t mean hundreds. The Black Death killed around 50 million people, which back then was more than half of Europe’s population. Right now, the population of Europe is estimated to be around 741 million people.
It seems surreal to think that without the advancements in medicine, the same fate could await us all one day. Is it an impossible scenario? Viruses evolve, and the world experts claim that in the near future, our vaccines might no longer work. Does it mean that the next great outbreak is around the corner? It’s impossible to predict, but we have to remember one thing: humans can be surprisingly inventive.
Organ transplants are not a new thing; they were done more than 100 years ago, without access to any sophisticated equipment. Hopefully, we will find a way to combat all the threats that could wipe us out. For now, we can be thankful that the technological progress brought us VR, laser pointers, and quick fix plus.
