VIGILANCE & PREPAREDNESS
Despite advances in development of countermeasures such as diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines, world travel and increased global interdependence have added layers of complexity to containing infectious diseases. COVID-19, an outcome of weaponisation by genetic manipulation as part of ‘gain of function’ research, had brought the entire world to its knees in less than six months.
Now, researchers and policymakers are being more vigilant towards surveillance and management of emerging infectious disease threats, and revisit global mechanisms for the control of pandemic disease. In addition to other countries across the globe, 2021 saw many initiatives taken by the APAC region to strengthen their capacities for effective preparedness and for the prevention of new and existing infectious diseases.
