The best way to treat the disease and to get rid of the worms is through medications. Diethylcarbamazine is the main medication; it kills the adult worms and the babies (microfilariae). If a person has taken multiple treatments of the first medication but the disease still remains, then they take Albendazole which kills adult worms. These medications can be detrimental to people with heavy infections and then a specialist is required for treatment. 13.)

Malaria is the most common disease in third world countries with a tropical climate; the disease is caused by a parasite called Plasmodium, which is transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitoes. In the human body, the parasites multiply in the liver, and then infect red blood cells. Symptoms of malaria include fever, headache, and vomiting, and usually appear between 10 and 15 days after the mosquito bite. If not treated, malaria can quickly become life-threatening by disrupting the blood supply to vital organs. In many parts of the world, the parasites have developed resistance to a number of malaria medicines.
The story of Ewald begins with his concerns on why some diseases are contagious while others ignore, leading to his visitation at the school of hygiene. He needed to understand the relationship existing between an host and parasites cause in his mind there shouldn’t be any kind of connection. His argument was based on the drastical effect it causes due to the fact that it immobilizes its patient, and if not taking care of will leads to a rapid spread making the surrounding contagious comparing viruses that have a human host not been succeeding in transmitting diseases from host to another host than insect like mosquitoes which transport the virus malaria through biting since it immobilized the human contract, leading to a drastic break down and his reason has to do with the rapid transmission and effects of malaria, and yellow fever was still transported actively by this insect through bites than cold. This led to his understanding of the massive deadly that had occurred in the previous year because the bacteria cause diarrhea isn’t culpable enough as mosquitoes in being productive with the transmission process.
Zika is a virus that a person can catch if bitten by an infected mosquito. First seen in Africa about 70 years ago, the virus recently has spread throughout the world, particularly in tropical areas where certain types of mosquitoes live.

The triatomine bug is nicknamed the “kissing bug” because it frequently bites humans on the face or around the eyes; the insect then defecates near the bite and the infected fecal matter may be rubbed into the bite wound by the bitten individual.

The rash will appear as small, flat, pink and non-itchy spots between two to five days after symptoms have begun and about 90% will develop this. The rash first appears on the wrist and the ankles then spreads in either directions up or down the legs and arms. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain that mimics appendicitis, deep muscle pain, lack of appetite, or red eyes. RMSF is transmitted to humans by a bite of a tick infected with the disease. When an infected tick bites and attaches itself to a human host for at least six to ten hours, transmission of the bacteria may occur.
“Ebola Zaire (EBO-Z) killed two hundred and eighty of the three hundred and eighteen people infected Yambuku Mission Hospital (YMH) used the same needles with different patients. They did not dispose of them properly or sterilize the needles. EBO-Z was then spread throughout YMH, infecting staff members as well as patients” (Commission). This encounter shows how Ebola Zaire (EBO-Z) has been easily spread throughout the YMH and can ruin the human population. EBO-Z will eat its victim and lead them to a painful death.

Some are known as the Pandemrix
As a result of vaccination, antibodies will be produced that attack the weakened virus without infection occurring as it would with natural infection. The antibodies will remain in the body and when exposure to the virus occurs the immune system will have a memory of how to fight it in the future. Despite the biological benefits of vaccinations, there is still debate on this topic. It is important that we understand where people 's doubts about vaccines lie and if they are valid or not. The main concerns people have with vaccines are that they are believed to be unsafe, ineffective and unnecessary, but is this
