Infectious diseases: Safety precautions, Health, & Wellbeing
From time to time we hear about new types of Infectious diseases that we have not heard about before. According to the statistics of the World Health Organization, pneumonia is the third largest cause of death in the world, after stroke and heart diseases. The most infectious diseases that cause death are digestive system related diseases, pneumonia, and AIDS. Prevention of these diseases is easy and does not require specific procedures or is it limited to the medical staff only, however, epidemic diseases that spread quickly and in a short time need cooperation between all parts of society and departments to prevent their spread and ensure immediate treatment for the patients.
The basis for prevention begins with the individual, so if the individual has sufficient awareness about the microbes that cause infectious diseases and how to distinguish the affected person and know the symptoms associated with the disease, it will aid the medical staff to take the appropriate action as soon as possible, in addition to taking the necessary measures to prevent infections and limiting the spread and exacerbation of the disease in the community.
