Communicable Disease Paper
The Dengue virus is known to be a mosquito-borne viral infection and is a major threat to health worldwide. It is a mosquito-borne infection that causes a severe flu-like illness and is also known as break bone fever. Fifty to one hundred million people are infected each year mostly in tropical and sub-tropical climates of the world. In the U.S, cases seen affected with the Dengue virus are mostly from Americans who traveled out of the country. Infection of the dengue virus causes dengue fever. The virus weakens the circulatory system and leads to a deadly hemorrhaging.
“Dengue fever is the most prevalent arthropod-borne viral illness in humans and is caused by family related to the virus that cause yellow fever, hepatitis C, and the Japanese St. Lou serotypes of DV causes spectrum of clinical disease ranging from an acute debilitating self-syndrome (dengue hemorrhagic fever/dengue shock syndrome)” (Diamond, Roberts, Edgil, Lu, Ernst, & Harris, 2000, Modulation of Dengue Virus Infection in Human Cells by Alpha, Beta, and Gamma Interface, pg.1, para. 2).
Environmental Factors
Humans are known to be the main carriers and multipliers of the virus. Dengue fever is caused by four different types of the dengue virus. It is transmitted by the bite of an Aedes mosquito directly from one person to another. Mosquitoes are known to breed mostly in man-made containers and are found in all continents of the world except Antarctica.
The Aedes mosquitoes’ characteristics are known to have peak biting periods during the early morning and just before dusk. The first case of the dengue fever was reported in Key west, Florida in 2009. By 2010, 1.6 Million cases were reported in the Americas of which 49,000 were severe dengue. Statistics had suggested that the threat is higher for Americans living along the Texas-Mexico border and other southern parts…...

..., a greater focus should be conferred to the low socioeconomic areas in the community for future health education and campaigns. Prevention and Disease Management The dengue virus can be potentially deadly. Symptoms usually occur after three to four days of infection after the incubation period of the virus and can last up to 10 days. High fever is usually the first sign of a dengue fever infection ranging from 104 degrees Fahrenheit and beyond. In addition, severe headache, nausea, vomiting, rashes, swollen glands, muscle pain, severe abdominal pain, shortness of breath, pain behind the eyes, and fatigue are common symptoms. Bleeding may also occur in the nose and gums. Furthermore, serious damage to the lymph nodes and blood vessels can lead to failure of the circulatory system. Enlargement of the liver can lead to permanent liver failure that may progress to a massive bleeding, shock, and eventually death. The National Institute of Health (NIH) recently has completed the phase 1 clinical trial of the dengue virus vaccine. Over the years, there is no specific treatment for a dengue infection. The most common treatment was hydration and acetaminophen and was treated similar to a flu type of infection. The vaccines were tested in a single dose of all four different types of the dengue vaccine DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3, and DENV-4. The vaccine is called TetraVax-DV. It was found that DENV-3 or TV003 vaccine was the most successful TetraVax-DV vaccine amongst the group of...

The term second hand smoke is a combination of gases and fine particles of burning tobacco such as cigarettes, cigars, and pipe tobacco also known as side stream smoke. Second hand smoke consist of exhale tobacco particulars from the original person or people smoking the tobacco product this is known as mainstream smoke according to the CDC. The side stream tobacco smoke contains toughly 7,000 different chemicals that can be harmful to a nonsmoker and a estimate 70% of those chemicals can lead to cancer. Side stream smoke has a higher concentration of cancer causing agents known as carcinogens. This type of chemicals can deadly to non-smokers when the levels of second hand smoke is consume over a period of time.

...Week Four Reflection Week Four Reflection In this week’s reading assignment, our team learned some useful information about this week’s learning objectives that we apply to our daily jobs. In our conversation we also discovered that each team member has either experienced or witnessed some of the influences that can have an emotional impact on organizational structure, organizational culture and power and politics within our own individual organizations. Our team had some interesting thoughts about what influences organizational structure can have on behavior as well as what influence organizational culture can have on behavior and most importantly how power and politics can have an influence on behavior within the workplace. Organizational Structure on Behavior Organizational Structure can be found in every organization regardless of the size of the business. Organizational Structure defines how the job responsibilities will be assigned to each employee. This can have an influence on an employee’s behavior, for example being in the military every position within the organization is clearly outlined and defined, which allows the organization to be disciplined and controlled. In the business world some managers follow six stages when putting their company’s organizational structure in place which also contributes to the influence of the employee’s behavior. Six Elements Work Specialization clearly outlines...

...Color Changes Intro to Physical Science Professor Fara Dyke 1. What three particles make up every atom? Protons, neutrons, and electrons are the three main subatomic particles found in an atom. Protons have a positive (+) charge. An easy way to remember this is to remember that both proton and positive start with the letter "P." Neutrons have no electrical charge. 2. What are the major differences among the three particles that make up every atom? The three particles which make up every atom differ in electrical charge and in mass, primarily. The proton and neutron have approximately the same mass but the neutron is slightly heavier; they each weigh approximately 2000 times more than the electron. The proton has a charge of +1, the neutron has no charge, and the electron has a charge of -1. 3. What is the relationship between a photon and a quantum leap?   A quantum is a discrete bundle of energy. It can be delivered by a photon. A quantum leap in an atom is when a photon carrying just the right amount of energy (i.e., at the right frequency or the right color) is absorbed by the atom and its electron jumps to a higher quantum level or higher orbital. 4. using the periodic table, determine the result of the following calculation: the number of electrons in the outer shell of a hydrogen atom minus the number of electrons in the outer shell of a helium atom plus the number of electrons in the outer shell of a hydrogen atom. This would equal (0). 5 .When is an...

We also discussed the different types of market types and understanding the differences. The discussions were focused around week one concepts and how to put them into practice. Plant Closings We focused our discussion around how managers can make the difficult decisions of laying people off. We discussed the business circumstances that can cause these unfortunate decisions. We found out what the government definition of unforeseeable emergency was by looking at the government website. It talked about the fact that this type of emergency cannot in any way be planned for (DOL, 2011). We also discussed if there was any correlation between how companies should report financial losses due to an unforeseeable emergency. We also discussed how laying people off may actually cost more money in unemployment benefits than actual salaries. Supply and Demand We all seemed a bit confused over the concept of the competition models. It seems that each of us struggle in our own ways but as we discussed the fact that they have multiple components makes it...
