Disease X: London’s next epidemic?

Check out the Museum of London’s Virtual Exhibition. “Disease X: London’s next epidemic?
To mark the 100 year anniversary of the deadliest wave of the Spanish Flu, we looked back at the past history of epidemics on Londoners. We wondered if the city might be at risk from an unknown ‘Disease X’, as the World Health Organisation called it.
London has been hit by many deadly epidemics over the centuries, including plague, cholera, smallpox, influenza and HIV/AIDS. We used our collections, new historical research and interviews with public health experts and epidemiologists to consider what impact a future outbreak
could have on London.
