Scenario: Global Pandemic

Throughout history there have been a number of significant pandemics - outbreaks of disease which cross international boundaries and infect many people. For a disease-causing organism such as a virus to become pandemic, it typically passes through several stages of evolution. At first it mostly affects animals, spreading widely through that population. Then a few cases may occur of the disease being transfered from animals to humans. Finally, once the organism gains the ability to spread from human to human, a pandemic may result. Whether it does or not depends on the rate at which infection spreads, and the death rate amongst infected people. In the past, organisms could only become pandemic through random mutation or merging with other infectious agents. Nowadays the possibility of an organism being deliberately engineered to cause widespread infection and death must also be considered.
