Diseases the WHO has Declared Emergencies for

A Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) is a formal declaration by the World Health Organization (WHO) of "an extraordinary event which is determined to constitute a public health risk to other States through the international spread of disease and to potentially require a coordinated international response", formulated when a situation arises that is "serious, sudden, unusual or unexpected", which "carries implications for public health beyond the affected State's national border" and "may require immediate international action". Name the diseases that have prompted these PHEICs since they began in 2005.

When I added it to this quiz, 90% of the cases were in Central China. I suppose I could take it off now.
