There are many experts on this subject, Doctor Saldmann who wrote the book “Wash Your Hands!” says in his traveling content topics that could help travelers in repelling diseases and performing good hygiene “the spread of a disease come through in th airplanes cabin thus spreading it to other passengers, to their destination on words” (40). Articles I have research talk about my previous arguments, for an example on article named “Too Sick to Travel: Who Decides?”. By Linda Bubank, New diseases can spread by international travel to other countries, which they aren't prepared for. If airlines and cruises lines did not allow ill people to travel the world would probably be safer. Keeping the innocent from dying.
Luckily for them a document, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, was signed into law by President Barack Obama so that they may have the same opportunities for coverage concerning their health. It is necessary for everyone to have health insurance to prevent the spreading of diseases, end the depletion of the population due to illness, and to keep the core of America's workforce healthy. There have been several epidemics and outbreaks in our nation and in other areas of this world due to weak immune systems and no form of preparation to counterattack bacteria cells entering the bloodstreams of the population. As time progressed and technology advanced, those in the medical field discovered ways to stop certain reactions before they happened or cure them once they have already began to damage an individual internally. But if there is a large sum of the population unable to afford the things necessary to receive the aid that will boost their health, then diseases will only continue to circulate and morph into even more dangerous compositions that will eventually overpower our medicines.
The influenza was different from the other illnesses people faced, because it differed genetically from previous influenzas. At first, this was not a concern since physicians had already obtained vaccines and treatments for the flu. What these physicians did not consider was that each year the influenza changes because it becomes resistant to the antibiotics and changes in its genetic marker. This led to the importance of locating the source of the virus. Due to the lack of preparation and knowledge of technology in 1918, the plague was easily transmitted throughout the United States at a rapid speed, threatening the lives of numerous citizens.
Doctors have learned just how deadly the flu virus can be which has led to the importance of them educating their patients of the flu virus and explaining the importance of getting the vaccine in order for their bodies to get an immunity of the many flu viruses that many in our country have previously faced. Many in our county in the past have died from the virus due to no vaccines, poor precautions, and being uneducated on the virus because it was new, but new vaccines and precautions are being taken in order to prevent pandemics such as the Flu Pandemic of 1918. Influenza is a highly contagious virus that attacks the respiratory system and is transmitted when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks and the droplets are transmitted through the air to infect another individual. A person can get the virus by touching an area that the virus is and then touching his or her eyes, mouth or nose, which is why it is very important to always wash hands and keep surfaces clean. Vaccines are available to help prevent humans from getting the virus and causing a serious outbreak.
These actions may seem severe but they are necessary in order to make sure New York has as few fatalities from this epidemic as possible. The first step being taken is quarantining those coming in from Europe who are showing symptoms of the virus or have been in close contact with anyone else showing the symptoms. This is to ensure that these people do not ride in public transportation and transfer the virus to unsuspecting civilians. People are also being inspected for the influenza virus at railroad stations across the city. This is to ensure that the infected do not ride the train and pass the virus on to not only the people on board but also to the population of their destination city.
Introduction Every day people are visiting airport to board a plane. To get into the airplane, people have to pass the airport security system. The airport security system will check the people and their stuff that they bring such as luggage and bag. The checker can be security guard, people detector machine, baggage scanner machine, dog and CCTV. It aims is to avoid the passengers from the contrabands or dangerous object such as drugs/illegal drugs, bomb, dangerous chemical materials, firearm weapon, metal weapon, and the other dangerous objects that can affects human lives and safety in airport and airplane.
The lack of medical attention during the Black Death led to these horrid events that Anthony had to experience. The black plague of the 1350s was the foundation for the development of modern medicine by changing hygiene, doctor’s practices and the common man’s knowledge of public health, which has progressed to keep from disastrous plagues from happening. The everyday man, like Anthony, had little knowledge of public health but after the devastating pandemic, the population developed simple methods that could be used to help end the plague. Initially the public’s knowledge of what caused the outbreak was poor and showed their lack of basic medicine. People at the time usually blamed the disease on witches, bad air, and astrology and believed it was a punishment by God (Gale).
Being a strong advocate for any and all preventative medicine, it is hard to stand by and watch people pass on something that can help prevent them from being very sick each year. Being involved in my employer’s public health preventative medicine program, we work to reach as many people as possible with vaccinations in hope that we can prevent future unnecessary hospitalizations that could put them at risk for greater health disparities. In this review, a high level article assessment was completed to identify how American’s are responding to the influenza vaccination and what healthcare experts are saying about the illness and America’s health. Literature Review The concept of preventing and controlling any emerging illness or disease is important. In bringing back the question we previously discussed, “Why are American... ... middle of paper ... ...ed in America’s thinking?
During the inspection, nurses who were assigned to draw blood were seen handling the needlestick carelessly, leaving our organization concerned about their safety. This organization’s goal is to provide equipment and support for all countries, especially developing countries with any healthcare issues.

Countries like Canada, have regulations where it is mandatory that engineered safety needles are being used in all healthcare settings. With the help of the World Health Organization and Universal Fund Coverage, the funds can be received for hospitals with a high rate of needlestick injuries, or can purchase enough for all beginner staff in hospitals.
However, the benefits and security from the research far out weigh the drawbacks. Military research today does not concentrate on making the biggest and most destructive bombs or weapons. A great deal of military funds are used on how to save lives not destroy them, saving the lives of soldiers, civilians, and even the enemy. Medical research and technology has grown greatly. “If a soldier is critically wounded and needs to fly somewhere to receive better attention, the doctors can set up an operating room in the airplane and perform many surgical operations while in flight” (Herzog 234) .
