To sum it all up, malaria is caused by parasite-infected mosquitoes, signs of malaria are basically changes in temperature from colds to fevers, it is diagnosed by extinguishable malaria parasites in the blood and treatment is determined by the severity of the disease, the outcome is usually complete recovery and in some cases, death is the only way out, and preventing malaria is all about preventing mosquitoes Again, malaria is a disastrous disease, one you don’t want to get; one that no one wants to get. Malaria is a disease worth knowing about, because it has killed an immense amount of people.
Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Supportive care is very important in the treatment of Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever (CCHF). Treatment used for this disease is an antiviral drug is given, ribavirin. Patient is kept in isolation and constantly monitored for blood volumes. Prevention In endemic regions, prevention depends on avoiding bites from infected ticks and contact with infected blood or tissues. M5 Smallpox Smallpox is a deadly disease spread by a virus called varilola, this disease was once one of the world’s most dangerous and feared disease, before its eradication in1980.Smallpox was a dangerous disease globally, due to how contagious the disease was and the rate of how the disease spread on a global basic.
Over the past years Dengue fever has become the major arboviral disease transmitted worldwide, with about 2.5 billion people at risk of having this kind of fever. This is a deadly illness, which can lead to more life threatening situations, such as the dengue haemorrhagic shock. According to the NHS website there hasn’t been any cure or antiviral treatment or vaccine for the illness. However during the past recent years entomologists have been working on how to minimise the outgrowing problem, to help reduce the fast increasing number of people with the fever. On this report I will summarise and discuss about the recent solutions or diagnosis being carried out by scientist to solve the problem.
The Dengue Virus, although virtually unknown in the United States, is prevalent in Latin America and Asia. It is also known as the breakbone fever. Transmitted by mosquitoes, the Dengue Virus causes rashes, headaches, and muscle pain. The hemorrhagic form of the virus may often cause death in the patient. WHAT IS DENGUE FEVER?

The parasites that cause malaria rely on a human host in order to reproduce and thrive. The vector, mosquitos in this case, are simply the means by which the parasite finds its next human host to thrive again. As seen by the eradication of malaria in some areas the life cycle of malaria parasites is greatly dependent on the life cycle of the anopheles mosquito.Mosquitos need water to reproduce as the egg, larval and pupae st... ... middle of paper ... ...the most Widespread, Insidious, and Costly of Diseases.

If microscopy is not available, antigen detection tests can be used. In a year, there can be as many as five hundred million new cases of malaria, and of those five hundred million, 2.7 million die. That means, on average, a malaria-caused death happens once every twelve seconds. Malaria “threatens more than 40 percent of the world's population.” (“NIDCD,” 2002) So what exactly is malaria? What are its symptoms and how would someone diagnose this disease?
The three major diseases that included in vector borne are dengue fever, malaria and Chikungunya (CHIKV) [1,2,3]. First of all, recent statistics of dengue fever and fatalities in Malaysia are ringing alarm bells across the country in this few years . Dengue fever is usually transmitted by Aedes Mosquito. One is infected with dengue fever by the bite of mosquito and eventually he/she will have some sign and symptom such as frontal headache, retro orbital pain, body aches, nausea and vomiting, joint pains, weakness, rash, anorexia, altered taste sensation, and have a mild sore throat.  If those signs and symptoms occur, he/she should see the doctor immediately and get a treatment because dengue fever may cause death.
There is an estimated 50-100 million infections occurring globally in each year, with 500,000 cases requiring hospitalization and causing 24,000 deaths (Halstead, 1988; WHO, 1997). Furthermore, the increasing populations in tropical and sub-tropical regions, making dengue as a global threat to public health (UNEP 2009; Holden, 2009). 1. 2. Etymology The origin of the word dengue derived from the Swahili phrase "Ka-dinga pepo", meaning "cramp-like seizure caused by an evil spirit".
The first flavivirus to be identified was yellow fever. Flavi in latin means yellow, which is where the family name comes from. One of the most damaging epidemics in our history took place in the early 1800s. Nepoleon sent 30,000 troops to North America to look over French land. In less than three years yellow fever decimated his troops to less than 5,000.
