Eric Feigl-Ding Biography
Feigl-Ding’s alert was used to hypothesize that such early reactiveness to weak signals, if it had occurred in the relevant governmental health leadership circles, could have prevented the pandemic. Following Feigl-Ding’s call and his raising of the alarm in January, better responses by government authorities could have led millions to have prepared earlier and better to the pandemic, upgrading their hygiene, such as hand-washing and implementing social distancing measures. It was proposed that public policies and actions should be based on precautionary principles rather than waiting for incontestable and inarguable evidences or the tide of public pressure. Feigl-Ding’s early pandemic alert was compared to the warnings since the 1970s about human-induced global warming, which in the 1980s had sufficiently strong early signals to have started actively planning for and responding to, reducing the disasters and costs of global warming during the 2000s and 2010s.

On January 20, 2020, Feigl-Ding went viral on micro blogging Twitter after expressing in vocal terms his worries relative to the 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak virus’ basic reproduction number (R0) of up to 3.8. Feigl-Ding compared the virus pandemic potential to the 1918 influenza pandemic which has an estimated R0 of 1.8 and which killed ~50 million people out of 2 billion, and called for WHO and CDC to preemptively declare public health emergency and monitor aggressively the situation. With the thread going viral, Feigl-Ding’s appeals were criticized by his epidemiologist peers as alarmist and based on anecdotal data, by journalists as misleading and misinforming the public, and his announcements were reused to advance conspiracy theories about the virus. While Feigl-Ding deleted the tweets, the rapid development of the epidemic, first in China in January, then in Europe in February–March and in the United States in March, together with more studies on the virus, turned the perceptions of Feigl-Ding into that of an early messenger. Feigl-Ding was invited as a commentator on the pandemic by news media.
