One of the most common complications of the flu is a bacterial infection. Sporadically, this can become serious and progress into pneumonia. A bacterial infection can be treated by a round of antibiotics but can occasionally become life-threatening, particularly in the frail and elderly.

Spitting there are many hazards, not only can cause health problems, in infectious disease multiple times, phlegm is a highly damaging route of transmission, inadvertently freely spit sputum are likely to have increased 10 people infected with the virus. First of all, spitting could lead to spread bacteria, into the air will harm to people. In our usual life, no spitting everywhere slogan, the reason is spitting is an extremely uncivilized unsanitary, spitting will make sputum bacteria spread easily, especially in public places, crowded place will make the spread of the virus.
Pediatric pneumonia is the most common cause of mortality in children. Although , there are cures for this infection , if not detected early , it can pose to be life threatening. Most cases of pediatric pneumonia are found in developing countries like Bangladesh , Nigeria and the Sub Saharan Region. According to WHO , as of 2013 , the causality rate caused by pneumonia is at 2 million, amongst children under the age of five. This dramatically rising number proves that there is a need to understand the etiology of this infection , and determine what factors can be assessed to help in early detection of pneumonia.
Purpose: As Vibrio cholerae is one of the major causes of death in the developing world, though it is very well understood, the authors undertook the work to see if a method already relatively common to the area could be effective in reducing cholera outbreaks. The authors objectives were to find a simple method that could be used without much training to reduce the incidence of cholera. Hypothesis: The authors’ hypothesis was that if a commonly used and simple water filtration system was used to lower the amount of the waterborne copepods that are linked with Vibrio cholerae from surface water taken for daily use, the occurrence of cholera would decrease dramatically. Background: The scientific community already knows much about the bacteria that causes cholera, V. cholerae, and methods to prevent outbreaks of cholera. Scientists also know that V. cholerae sticks to larger copepods’ eggs, oral region, and the copepod itself.
This bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, can have a big effect to those who have cancer, since they have a low immune system. Like any other bacteria, this infection does not only have specific symptoms, but multiple regarding the place it comes in contact with. When it is in contact with a wound green, covered pus can be noticeable. This can have a severely impact to the person causing pneumonia.

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.)
