Disease outbreaks are fundamentally the same as epidemics. Epidemics or outbreaks occur when there is a rapid growth of the infected. The rise of cases of infectious disease can happen every year and in any country. It can last for weeks or even for years. The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus two years ago started in Wuhan, China. When it spread rapidly to other neighboring countries, it became a pandemic. Pandemic has changed our way of life. Everyone is now adjusting to the so-called new normal. As we gradually adjusted to the effects of the pandemic, headlines about the outbreak of a new virus do not scare us anymore as they did before. Especially now that vaccination is ongoing and many citizens have been vaccinated. If we go back to history, a disease outbreak does not only refer to the spread of infectious diseases. A single case of a rare infectious disease can also be classified as an outbreak. An example of this is Anthrax.

Factors That Can Influence Outbreaks

Environmental factors – water supply, climate, sanitation facilities, and air quality- play a role in transmitting an infectious disease. Poor living conditions result in poor hygiene, improper disposal facilities, and lack of safe water are usually the significant elements of a diarrhea outbreak. Climate affects the outbreak of airborne diseases. Infectious diseases caused by viruses spread rapidly through air and infect a large number of the population in a short time. But a hot climate can also help lessen the spread of viruses. One example is the coronavirus. Though it can be transmitted through air, it cannot last long in hot weather. Therefore there are fewer cases in countries with hot climates than cold temperatures.

Things You Should Know

Do you know that there are other causes of disease outbreaks? Infectious disease is not the only cause of disease outbreaks or epidemics. There have been disease outbreaks caused by exposure to chemicals and disease outbreaks.

Chemical Disease Outbreak

An example of this is the Jamaican ginger paralysis. The culprit of the outbreak is the tri-ortho-cresyl phosphate which contaminates the dialysis filter machines. It causes neurological illness to patients undergoing dialysis in six countries.

Disease Outbreak With Unknown Etiology

A disease outbreak is caused by a new modified pathogen, natural toxin, or exposure to a chemical released by an unknown source. One example of this outbreak is the Nodding disease in Southern Sudan which until the cause is still unknown.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
