pandemic: Last News

A pandemic is a disease epidemic that has spread across a large region, for instance multiple continents, or worldwide. A widespread endemic disease with a stable number of infected people is not a pandemic. Further, flu pandemics generally exclude recurrences of seasonal flu. Throughout history, there have been a number of pandemics of diseases such as smallpox and tuberculosis. One of the most devastating pandemics was the Black Death, which killed an estimated 75–200 million people in the 14th century.

In many ways sisters Kelly Edwards and Jenna Camilleri, who own Adventure Forest play centre in Trafford, say it's been the 'forgotten' industry in all of this.

When they closed suddenly in March 2020, they say they 'never imagined we'd be closed for over a year'.

The pair have been dogged by setbacks, including a huge flood which hindered their chances
