The World Health Organisation has put medical workers around the planet on alert for the pathogen – dubbed Disease X.

The Geneva-based organisation has not identified a specific disease but wants to be prepared for an unknown mass killer.

Doctors fear the possible epidemic will come from a disease passed from animals to humans such as HIV.

Disease X is now classed as serious as Lassa fever in Nigeria and Ebola, which killed more than 11,000 people in Africa between 2013 and 2016.

The WHO said: “Disease X represents the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease.”

John-Arne Rottingen, chief executive of the Research Council of Norway and a scientific adviser to the WHO committee, told the Telegraph: “History tells us that it is likely the next big outbreak will be something we have not seen before.

“It may seem strange to be adding an ‘X’ but the point is make sure we prepare and plan flexibly in terms of vaccines and diagnostic tests.”

Mr Rottingen said Disease X would most likely be sparked by a “zoonotic disease”jumps from animals to humans and then becomes an epidemic, which happened with H1N1 swine flu in 2009.
