Pathway 30 Human health: Potential increases in disease levels beyond those pre-gene drive intervention following a resurgence in pathogen transmission after initial population suppression would have reduced human immunity to pathogen. This could be a potential harm for any potentially successful vector control agent, not just population suppression gene drive, but is included for the sake of completeness [152]. The analyses here are likely to lead to a ‘weight of evidence’ either in favour of or against the potential harm occurring
