Deadliest Disease Epidemics That Existed Before Covid-19

Corona virus, the current pandemic that has shaken the whole world, third world countries and super power countries, is not the only pandemic crisis the world has ever experienced. However, corona virus is the beast amongst them all. Having killed over millions of people globally and changing the normal lifestyle example wearing of face masks everywhere. Luckily, most have adapted to this lifestyle.

The following is a list of some of the worst ever recorded pandemics in the world that caused chaos;

1. The Aids Pandemic- From 1981 till date

In 1981 AIDS erupted and killed many people. Aids is caused by numerous reasons which you know of course ( You can share them in the comment section).

However, the generation of today is no longer scared of this disease. Guess things have changed.

HIV and Aids is believed to have caused deaths' of over 35 million.The number is still accumulating.

The virus is spread through most common 2 ways.

a) It is spread through intercourse among humans, one of them being the carrier

b) Spread by mosquitoes of the Aedes genus.

3. H1N1 Swine Flu- From 2009 to 2010

The disease originated from the Mexicans.

Luckily, a vaccine for the core factor that led to the disease pandemic has been figured out and is now being administered.

4. The West African Ebola- From 2014 to 2016

The one thing that I hate about this disease is that it has no cure despite numerous researches done.

The first case of Ebola was reported way back in December 2013, at Guinea. After wards it later spread on quickly to other countries like Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Ebola is estimated to have caused over 11,325 deaths.
