Scientific Advancements Are One Reason The World Doesn’t Face Pandemics Often

New diseases seem to pop up often. Part of this is because cold and flu strains are always changing, which brings about new viruses and bacterias to fight off. Fortunately, scientists are quick to discover new antibiotics and other solutions to help decrease the symptoms or prevent people from becoming ill. This is also a reason why the world doesn’t see as many outbreaks, such as the current crisis, happening regularly. 

History proves that they used to be more common, even if they remained in one country as people didn’t travel back then like they do now. Without scientific advancements, the regular cold would seem more like a challenge every year than a typical cold you live with for a couple of weeks.
