Highly contagious biological agents may emerge in various circumstances. However, the occurrence thereof is preceded by incidents which may be intentionally created, as well as arising from natural disasters and mutations. The overall impact of highly contagious biological agents has always been enormous. Even before the COVID-19 outbreak, global pandemics were high on the list of risks for global economy, which was proven in the past few years.
