Here comes our responsibility as team leaders and responsible civilians to educate such people, guide, and help them to know vaccines’ role in prevention and cure of diseases using simplest language possible while meeting face-to-face, organizing campaigns, seminars, and advertising and answering all the queries via world-wide-web, and using latest smart media and technologies. All in all, demand for the affordable and safe treatment has always been a global concern, but thankfully, with great efforts of our dedicated and highly inspired scientists and researchers today we have few vaccines as cost-effective, secure and reliable preventive-therapy. Introduction of vaccines in the modern science has proved to be a boon to the humanity and a major break-through to the conventional treatment methods. Also, if one could avert a disease then he would not need to worry about the cost he might have paid if he has had suffered from
The movie began by showing individuals from different parts of the world having the same symptoms of the diseases, which was being spread shortly after being affected. The diseases were then shown to affect numerous individuals and the transmission continued to increases at a fast rate. In hopes of eliminating further spread of the disease, the government begins to quarantine infected individuals. However, throughout the film, it emphasizes that even minimal contact with an infected individual can cause catastrophic consequences (contagion). Researchers cannot defer the transmission of the disease because there is no treatment protocol. There is no information acquired about the disease and it is spreading very quickly which makes it increasingly more difficult for researchers to develop treatment. Due to the fact that there is an initial lack of information, the public’s response to the effects of the pandemic is crazed and quickly escalates out of control (contagion). The public response in the U.S to the effects of the pandemic, are devastating. The public response once it has been named a pandemic is that of people are afraid, people want answers and the cure to a disease and they will go to any level in order to get the cure. Many individuals begin to pillage and steal in order to obtain objects for their survival. They ran shacked supermarkets, destroy property and car, and even rob banks. Everyone wants to live and with lack of vaccines, the country is in an uproar and people will do whatever it takes to survive. Dr. Hextall ultimately discovered the treatment for the disease by testing the vaccine on rhesus monkeys. At the CDC lab, one of the monkeys shows signs that the trial vaccine is working, but Hextall tells Cheever it will take months to test, approve, and then synthesize large amounts of a vaccine. Hextall ignores the protocol and injects herself
Should Australians make financial contributors to vaccine programs in developing countries? It’s undisputable that the world is evolving into a global village. People tend to lose sight of the real problems going on in the world like the importance of a thriving country, such as Australia, helping unindustrialized countries with their problems and lack of resources, especially health wise. It should be a necessity that Australia donates money to the vaccine programs in developing countries as they are less fortunate as we too used to be a developing country. Other factors such as the importance of keeping good relationships with other countries, less chance the virus will spread if it’s treated there and by financially supporting them we save millions of lives each year.
Viruses, Plagues, and History, written by Michael Oldstone, is an insightful and highly educational book that details the history of, that’s right, viruses and plagues. Through typically dry, yet engaging prose, Oldstone recounts what seems like all of it while simultaneously bringing to light the contributions of those brave scientists
Abstract Nipah virus, Arena Virus and Francisella tularensis are bioterrorism agents. They work in various ways to harm the host. Francisella tularenis is considered a Tier 1 bioterrorism agent and Nipah virus is an overlap select agent that affects humans and agriculture both. They have been harmful in the past. Though, Nipah virus is a newer virus than the other two. This review will focus on their emergence, pathogenicity and symptoms of the diseases they cause.
With the continuous research of these swarms we will better understand the relationship these viruses share with their
Oncolytic Seneca Valley Virus: past perspectives and future directions This article covers the Seneca Valley Virus (SVV-001) as a hopeful for an oncolytic treatment of certain cancer types. More specifically those with neuroendocrine properties such as rhabdomyosarcoma, Wilms tumor, glioblastoma, neuroblastoma, and adult small-cell lung cancer. Each of which effect smooth/skeletal
Introduction BK virus is a common infection that can cause a mild respiratory illness. BK virus is also called polyomavirus. After the first infection, the virus remains in the kidneys and other parts of the urinary tract but is inactive (latent). BK virus very rarely causes problems in healthy people. People may live with this inactive virus for years and never have any more symptoms.
Many people are infected each year by what is known as the stomach flu. Little do you know that the stomach flu is part of the Norwalk Virus. Norwalk Virus also known as Norovirus is an extremely contagious virus. This virus causes your intestines and or stomach to inflame which leads you to have stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and puking.
However, we must understand that only one disease - smallpox – has been completely erased from this planet. “From around the world in 2011 there was around 350,000 cases of measles, with outbreaks in the Pacific, Asia, Africa, and Europe." With this ever-growing sense of safety, small groups of anti-vaccine have begun to sprout and even our very own president has refused vaccines. Even though it may seem as though we are safe from the vaccine-preventable diseases, if we become too vulnerable due to no vaccinations there is a chance that a case that will start an outbreak of some disease that is now under control is just a plane ride
According to The Guardian Now we can edit the embryo successfully so why should we do it. II. Pros when it comes to embryo editing A. When we look into curing or even reducing the frequency of viruses using the tool could make a huge impact on many lives.
The people who weren’t infected start to panic in the streets and lock themselves in their houses. People are shown breaking windows of grocery stores, scavenging for food to last them until the outbreak is contained. Once the vaccination is released, people begin to throw chairs in pharmacies and fight each other for immunity. The movie fails to express the extent to which people needed to fight for food. “In reality, when food and other amenities are cut off from an entire city, people can usually last only up to five days. Gasoline would also last only about five to seven says” (Brown). The movie shows the community going on for much longer than the allotted time. Also failing to express, is the accuracy of how long it takes to identify a virus. The movie shows that the scientists are able to culture the virus in only twelve days and create a vaccination in only four months. Vaccines must go through many safety trials and tests before they can be released, which should take longer than just four months. The writers also accurately portray the concept of contagiousness by referring to R0. The R0 of MEV-1 is compared and explained to the R0 of smallpox, polio and influenza. The comparison to real life viruses explains contagiousness and brings a realistic effect to the movie. The producers of the movie do a fantastic job showing how easily the virus can be spread as fomites from one person to another by letting the camera linger of specific objects such as the martini glass, the bus pole, and the handshake between Beth and the chef in Hong Kong. The importance of hand sanitizer is also greatly expressed by showing how urgently people reached into their pockets and lathered their hands in it after touching anything, in hopes of killing any possibly germs
Put yourself in the shoes of a parent, would you want to ever do anything to harm your child? Would you unknowingly insert a harmful substance onto a child’s body due to your inadequate education? Many, if not all, would answer no to the previous questions, why? Because us, as
Damn, now he knew why he felt uneasy about the use of Murphy’s virus. Despite all the propaganda, they may be unpredictable and change once in their hosts. He ripped the sheet from its pad and crammed it into his
Undoubtedly everyone of these persecutors has received in some kind of form a vaccination at one time in their life. The study and application of vaccinations have saved millions lives worldwide. When there were negative side effects the world did not simply chose to eliminate them. Instead of the elimination of vaccines, governmental figures and politicians have chosen to invest more time and money into this research which has helped insure public safety worldwide (Magnan, 2017). In the twenty first century, mankind is blessed with more varieties of safe vaccinations. These investments has even resulted to be able to administer vaccinations such as the flu shot every year. Imagine if man had chosen to give up with the investment of these studies. Poliomyelitis was destroyed solely by this research (Alexander, 2012, p.14). Despite consequential vaccination induced illnesses such as Guillain-Barré Syndrome and oculomotor palsy, there have never been such signs associated with the use and consumption of genetically modified organisms. President Philip Nelson (2012) from the Illinois Farm Bureau wrote “biotech crops have been researched, grown and consumed for nearly 30 years. In that
