    Every year, the World Economic Forum releases the Global Risks Report as part of the Global Risks Initiative ahead of the Forum’s annual meeting, which traditionally takes place in Davos, Switzer-land. The Report is a litmus test of sorts, as its methodology is based on the results of the Global Risks Perception Survey, in which nearly one thousand decision-makers from the public sector, private sector, academia, and civil society assess the world’s risks.
    Regardless of the number of risks identified (for example, in 2011, as many as thirty-seven risks were named, whereas, in 2019, there were only twenty), what is significant is that the majority of the surveyed experts did not generally indicate the risks connected to public health as particularly urgent – typically they pointed out the lack of geopolitical stability, economic downturns, or climate change. Even in the 2020 report, which is its fifteenth edition, while men-tioning risks that stem from viruses and bacteria, the document categorizes them as “societal.” According to the relevant Global Risks Perception Survey respondents, this type of risk was to be re-garded as potentially bearing high Impact but somewhat lower than average likelihood
