The world will become like the times of Fuxi and Shennong. The people will be able to drive away disasters and misfortune and gain the ability to live long lives.

Shouldn't it be "misfortunes" instead, as the preceding word is "disasters"?
Thanks.

It can be, but it doesn't have to be.

As a singular noun misfortune is uncountable. It does seem a little odd to mix the countable disasters with the uncountable misfortune, but strictly speaking it's not ungrammatical. It's a matter of style.
