It is highly contagious and can be transferred person to person via close contact such as touching something that is contaminated and proceeding to touch one’s eyes, nose or mouth. It can also be transmitted by respiratory secretions or droplet exposure ("Interim Guidance", 2010).
The concept behind immunization is to expose those to a very small safe bit of the most dangerous diseases that they may be likely to encounter at any point in life. We also regard protection against those same diseases coming into contact with our bodies.

A reservoir is a host of an infection. The vector, meaning carrier, is insects such as fleas and
In this excerpt, Stratton uses foreshadowing to develop the novel’s underlying theme of death via the widely spread disease… HIV/AIDS. Stratton uses Jonah’s situation to demonstrate to the reader an instance of how the disease would spread in households rapidly. Jonah has slept with many other women other than Chanda’s mother, Lillian. Since these women work s prostitutes they have most likely slept with other men. Therefore, they have caught the disease and dispersed it to other people. Jonah has caught it from someone, passed it on to Lilian, and all their babies have died from that incident. It is foreshadowed that Chanda’s mom’s sickness and tiredness is all because of her having caught the disease rather than on account of Sara’s death,
The CDC has determined “smallpox is an acute, contagious, and sometimes fatal disease caused by variola virus” (question and answers about smallpox disease). Smallpox has been around for thousands of years. The cause of Smallpox is Variola. Since Smallpox is from Variola it is from Orthopoxvirus. The last outbreak has not occurred recently. This disease is spread by direct contact. Symptoms are very bad and after it it’s horrible.
The PAR Model helps us to understand how the concomitant factors of hazard and vulnerability, gives rise to disaster risk. The image of this model resembles a nutcracker, with people in the centre, and vulnerability and hazard on either side. This creates the Pressure on the population; and on the other side of the equation is Release, which are ways to decrease this pressure on the population by decreasing the factors that lead to vulnerability. (Ben Wisner,
Shingles also has other names such as Zoster, Herpes zoster, or Zona. It is a viral infection that causes a skin rash to the injured person. It is the same virus that infects person and causes him to chickenpox disease.

Paget disease is a condition that makes the bones grow faster than normal. This leads to bones that are larger and weaker than normal. Healthy bones rebuild themselves by destroying old bone and replacing it with new bone tissue. This process usually slows down as a person gets older. If you have Paget disease, the process speeds up instead. As a result, your bones become weaker and larger. The new bone tissue may have more blood vessels. These changes can cause the bone to have an abnormal shape (deformity). These bones may bend or break more easily than healthy bones.
Smallpox was the most serious poxvirus disease in humans, caused by Variola virus (VARV). It was spread by inhalational exposure of oral, nasal or pharyngeal droplets that contained the virus and initially caused influenza like symptoms such as fever of at least 38.3°C, muscle pain, malaise, headache and prostration. After 10-14 days incubation the classic poxvirus rash would appear on the face, all four limbs, mucous membranes of the mouth, tongue, palate and throat. When visible lesions first observed, temperature falls to near normal, and the lesions rapidly enlarged and ruptured, developing from macules to papules and eventually pustules that dried up and crusted over by 14 to 16 days if the patient survived. By day 16-20, scabs would form
Herpes Zoster(shingles) also known as the reactivation of the Varicella-Zoster virus. Varicella-Zoster virus is another word for the chickenpox. Chickenpox is mainly describe as a childhood infectious disease. If you have developed chickenpox there is a chance you can develop Herpes Zoster. This disease is often presented in elderly because there cellular Immunity is reduced. There are many important facts associated with the Herpes Zoster virus which is causation, signs & symptoms, Treatments available, organ system involved and other important historical facts associated with this disease. In the United States there are about 1 out 3 people who develop shingles and there is about 1 million cases involving shingles every year.
