The waves of deadly diseases did not stop there, but a new disease called Ebola was introduced not too long ago. More than 23,200 people from Africa have died, and still more counting worldwide. However, doctors and medical teams from all over the world united to defeat Ebola efficiently and effectively. They have decreased the rate of death and infection from a few hundred cases a week to much fewer currently. This could only happen if people from all countries worked together and effectively against Ebola.
With soldiers densely populated in bunkers, the flu spread like wildfire, especially when it arrived in the United States of America. The Spanish Influenza was a stone-cold killer. Once an individual acquired the infection, within thirty hours, most would be dead. But, could something like this actually benefit Americans and their society? Most people would say that 675,000 deaths never improves a country, but in America’s
Paul saved harbored and cared for over 1,200 Tutsi refugees in his five star hotel where he risked losing his job by taking them in. However, if Paul hadn’t done this, all of these poor Tutsis would’ve almost surely been killed or deported. In the grand scheme of things Paul did not single handily end the bloodbath that was the Rwandan Genocide, nor did he have the power but he did all he could.

In my opinion, his first book that left a mark on the world was Agriculture: The Worst Mistake In the History of The Human Race. After hearing the thesis of this book, I know better understand some of his reasoning in Guns, Germs, and Steel. He first claims that agriculture brought more malnutrition and disease than it brought good. While is disagree with this because of the prosperity that resulted far, later on, it is an interesting concept that you can see was brought over into Guns, Germs, and Steel. For a substantial amount of time, many historians believed that Diamond had cracked the code of civilization.
The leading cause of death in the world is hunger. Today, around twenty one thousand children die around the world due to poverty. Although the root of the problem does not solely lie on the wealthy, the root of the problem is the improper allocation of our resources. A new study from McGill University and the University of Minnesota published in the journal “Nature” shows that in a year, the world produces enough food to feed ten billion people and that’s like 1 ½ of our total population. But still billions go to sleep hungry every night.
The root causes for these disastrous economies are the basic disorganization of newly-formed countries. The last of the colonies were decolonized by the end of the 20th century and these newborn nation-states had to form a government with what little money and economy left for them. As the nations received aid and developed their countries, they still had a large imbalance of a few African elite against the rest of the population. This majority of the population suffer from many unfortunate parts of life, including insecurity to basic human needs, inadequate resources and the effects of misused money. These causes lead to many effects and will end in dire consequences if we don’t help these unfortunate beings.
It is evidently clear from the table that Africa has a much higher death rate due to Tuberculosis than America. America has approximately 199 000 fewer deaths due to Tuberculosis than Africa. Calculations show that approximately 9.57 % of the 2 300 000 people in Africa that have Tuberculosis, will die, which in other words would mean, approximately 220 000 people will die due to Tuberculosis in Africa. If one were to compare that to America one would find that approximately 8.08% of the 260 000 people in America that have Tuberculosis, will die, which in other words, would mean that approximately 21 000 people will die due to Tuberculosis in

To date, the epidemic has left behind 13.2 million orphans, children who before the age of 15 have lost either their mother or both parents to AIDS. Economic impacts - growing evidence suggests that AIDS is having a devastating effect on economic growth and incomes. An African country overall GDP growth would be 2.6% lower each year. At the end of 20 years, the economy would be two thirds smaller than it would otherwise have been. Workers - AIDS reduces the number of healthy workers, especially experienced workers in their most productive years.
