In 2010, the World Health Organization warned us about Rift Valley Fever, remember that one? The viral zoonosis primarily affecting animals but had capacity to infect humans. In February 2011, WHO taught us about Monkeypox which can cause fatal diseases in humans another viral zoonosis, mainly found in Central and West Africa. August 2012 brought Ebola Haemorrhagic Fever, November 2012 the Marburg Haemorrhagic fever and Meningococcal meningitis. In January 2013 they discussed the Crimean-congo haemorrhagic fever, in February 2013, Measles April 2013 Poliomyelitis, June: Trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), and Buruli Ulcers, July 2013 WHO published updated information on Hepatitis A, B, C, and E. In September 2013: Dengue and severe Dengue – a mosquito-borne viral infection with flu-like illness which can develop into a potentially lethal complication called severe dengue, making ½ of the world’s population at risk. In 1970, only 9 countries had experienced severe dengue epidemics, but now found in 100 countries in Africa, America, Eastern Mediterranean, South-East Asia and Western Pacific. In 2013, cases were discovered in Florida. October was about Tuberculosis, followed by Malaria in December 2013, Leishmaniasis in January 2014 and Leprosy.
The point in all of this information is simple: infectious diseases are all around us, ever changing and requiring more aggressive treatments to contain them. Yet – it is all too often that more frequent and more virulent infectious diseases are coming into the picture. Join us to learn the new treatments for our “old friends” and learn about the new ones we are facing. Go to CT-CMSA Current Events.
