In November, the International Association of Therapeutic Journalists released a report warning that the increasing number of chronic illnesses in the developing world is leading to the “death of the healthy”.
And there are signs that we are heading towards a “collapse” of the Western medical model of medicine.
For example, in China, where the number of people who die of a heart attack has increased by 50 per cent since 2010, the mortality rate is nearly double that in the United States.
The world is now in the midst of a “medical famine”, according to Dr James McConville, a former professor of medical history at Oxford University.
The World Health Organisation has also warned that the rising number of cases of COVID-19 could eventually lead to the extinction of the human race.
The rise of the new pandemic is causing many people to “see the doctor” or take some form of preventive medicine, said Dr Ian Wright, a professor of infectious diseases at University College London.
“The trend towards preventive medicine is certainly not going away,” he told The Independent.
“There are now so many new things we can do to make sure we’re not getting these infections, and we can avoid them.”
A global shortage of antibiotics The global supply of antibiotics has reached record highs, with the global demand for them now approaching 80 per cent of all antibiotics used worldwide.
This has prompted the World Health Organization to warn of a global “resurgence” of antibiotic resistance.
The problem is that many people who have previously avoided antibiotics are now taking them, which can be a problem for health systems.
Dr Wright said there were also issues in the supply chain, with “many people buying new drugs from overseas and bringing them into the country”.
And many antibiotics are still not being tested properly, and that can have a “catastrophic effect” on human health, he said.
As a result, many people have switched to more natural forms of medicine, like traditional Chinese medicine.
“We’re at a moment in our lives where the need to be healthy and prevent disease is being met by a different set of health problems,” Dr Wright told The Observer.
“But we’re getting more sick.
We’re getting a higher death rate.”
There are also fears that the pandemic could also lead to a “resignation of the modern Western healthcare model”, which relies heavily on pharmaceutical drugs and hospital stays, said Professor McConvill.
“In a world where health is increasingly connected to the economy, we’re seeing the emergence of a new kind of healthcare model, where a new form of medicine can be used to treat a lot of different diseases and then it’s then connected back to healthcare,” he said, adding that he was “very worried” about the “resumption of the old system”.
“We don’t need to go back to a world in which antibiotics are prescribed, which is why I think it’s a very good thing that we’re beginning to see some evidence that there’s a problem.”
However, Dr McConvilly said the new global pandemic has not yet been driven by any real pandemic, nor was it a “surge”.
In fact, there was no new coronavirus in 2015.
In fact the number was down by 2.7 per cent in October.
In comparison, the last major outbreak of the coronaviral disease was in 2008, when there were over 20,000 cases and more than 70,000 deaths.
“When you have a big spike like that, there’s no reason to think there’s anything to fear,” he added.
“It’s just going to be more of the same.”
