The Plagues and Vector-Borne Diseases that Should be Considered Plagues Plague. What is it? In Layman terms, it is basically the transmission of potential life threatening bacteria from the environment to human beings. Plague infected organisms are highly contagious and the chances of surviving from plague are also slim as often there is either lack of proper medical attention or not having a cure for the particular plague . Recently there have been various strains of bacteria that have acted as plague bacterium as they have similar characteristics as the original plague had.
Recognizable symptoms commonly seen with anaplasmosis are a fever, headache, muscle pain, malaise, chills, nausea, abdominal pain, cough, confusion, and a rash although rare with anaplasmosis. Severe symptoms may include difficulty breathing, hemorrhage, renal failure, or neurological problems. People should be treated with a tetracycline antibiotic (usually doxycycline) for 10 to 14 days. Sometimes longer treatment may be necessary because of the possibility of a coinfection with Lyme disease. If treated is not given in a certain time frame then the patients a may get unwanted complications such as viral and fungal infections.
Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms, such as parasites, bacteria, fungi and viruses, which many may live in our bodies ("Norovirus," n.d.) Symptoms of Norovirus can be diarrhea, stomach pains, nausea, and vomiting. Norovirus can be caught by a sick person, ingesting food or water that has been contaminated or by even touching infected surfaces and it is highly contagious. This infectious disease is of interest to public health as it can involve any individual and rapidly expand to a community and a population if proper precautions are not taken place. It is vital to a public health nurse to assess the individual as well as the public in order to put emphasis on priority interventions at that specific moment. Although there is no vaccination or drug that will help prevent contracting this infectious disease, it is important to the public health nurse to make the population aware of signs and symptoms, preventative measures as well as how others can be on alert in order to prevent the spread of this illness.
Epidemics become unmanageable at alarming speeds because people might not use proper treatment, lack of herd immunity. In one droplet, there is about 100,000 – 1,000,000 virus particles. Moreover, symptomatic people don’t stay at home. Flu has really short incubation period usually is about 1-4 days and can be explored quickly. Flu is mainly treated by rest and drinking plenty of water, so that the body can resist infection by immune system.
Because so many patients with sinusitis have allergies, we have included a section on allergies later this website as well. Do allergy shots help with sinus infections? In patients who have chronic sinus infections, I think it makes sense to do anything to avoid worsening of symptoms or surgery. If we find a patient is allergic and has chronic sinusitis, we often suggest getting allergy shots to desensitize them to the various things to which they are allergic, in the hope that it will help with the sinusitis. Because allergy shots take 6-24 months to work, they must used in conjunction with other treatment, including controlling exposure to environmental agents.
Impetigo is easily spread between and very common in kids, but adults can get it also. It can be easily treated with antibiotics and even prevented with good hygiene.

Anyone experiencing these effects should seek treatment and assistance in ridding their home of toxic mold. Even if the symptoms are treated, they will continue unless the mold is removed completely from the
The severe effects and complications associated with WNV have encouraged more research to discover a cure and determine why certain populations contract WNV, but sporadic outbreaks have left relatively few concerned with the progression of the disease. Many could potentially be affected by WNV even though physical symptoms only appear in 20% of those who are infected. Because so little is known about WNV and reported cases appear to fluctuate by year with no real reason it is difficult to know how many will contract the disease in subsequent years. In the United States, cases of WNV must be reported to the CDC, but because not every country records cases of WNV and 80% of individuals who are infected with WNV don’t know they have contracted it, determining just how prevalent this disease has become is difficult to
