The World Health Organisation writes about the next influenza pandemic in terms of "when, not if". In the past 300 years there have been around 10 pandemics, 1 in 3 more deadly than the others.
The impact of an influenza pandemic depends on the nature of the disease (transmissibility, severity of illness, number of deaths, ages more affected) and on our preparedness and response as individuals and societies (keep essential services running, minimize disruption).
We can't know when the next pandemic will be, how deadly or how disruptive. But experts agree: preparing will make our chances better. So how do we prepare?
