Pages: 2 (460 words) Document Type:Questionnaire Document #:95467089

...Vaccination Q1. At present, COVID-19 has largely been a disease of the developed world. Even so, it has presented significant challenges for developed world nations such as the United States to contain its spread. What unique challenges are presented by Africa’s developing world nations in containing a disease for which there is no vaccine, and which is transmitted through social contact?
Q2. Unlike the West, Africa has already faced a relatively recent pandemic, that of Ebola. How are the challenges posed by COVID-19 similar to those posed by Ebola? How are they different? What particular precautions must be undertaken that were not necessary during the Ebola crisis, and how may existing resources be used to help fight COVID-19? What can be learned from the Ebola crisis, particularly from physicians who were there, treating patients at the time?

...Vaccination The Right to Due Process and Privacy in Times of Coronavirus
One of the major problems in the US and the wider world is the dissemination of news or information that is accepted uncritically as gospel truth because it comes from a trusted source, a trusted outlet, a trusted organization, or a professional with the right sort of credentials that get people to assume trust. With regards to the coronavirus there is a great deal of misinformation and a great deal of legitimate questions and points that are raised by professionals, doctors, scientists, researchers and people with extensive backgrounds in epidemiology and health care that are not promoted in the mainstream media because those questions and points do not provoke fear and hysteria, which are the main drivers of the lockdown. Governors across the US have used fear and hysteria, rather than common sense, as justification for locking down……

Pages: 8 (2400 words) Sources: 4 Document Type:Essay Document #:648841

...Vaccination Keywords:  corona virus, coronavirus, covid, covid-19


The novel Coronavirus COVID-19 appeared in China in 2019, quickly having a much more serious impact than prior evolutions of the coronavirus.  As it began to spread from Wuhan, the district in China where it originated, to other parts of China and to other countries, the world began to realize that the local epidemic could become a pandemic.  Efforts to contain the spread were varied and had mixed results, but Coronavirus eventually hit the United States and began to spread locally.  In this article, we describe what Coronavirus is, what COVID-19 is, where it originated, where it has spread, transmission rates, mortality, and efforts to contain the spread of the disease.  Because this is a constantly evolving situation, this article should be used in conjunction with developing news to fully understand the issue.

...Vaccination Norovirus: Symptoms, Causes and Treatment
When wintertime comes, most people are excited to get out, do some holiday shopping, visit relatives, and enjoy the holidays. However, there is always the risk at this time of year of catching a bug—aka a virus. The most common fear is of catching the flu virus, which is why flu vaccines are advertised around every corner at this time. Yet, there is another virus that people do not consider so much—and, unfortunately, it is related to food—which is especially worrisome, given that Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s all fall during the same season when the norovirus is most likely to strike. In fact, given that these social holidays are all packed tight into the winter season festivities, that is one reason the norovirus is so likely to hit so many at this time.
The norovirus is known as the winter vomiting bug or……

Henrietta Lacks And The Social Covenant Of Nursing

Pages: 6 (1650 words) Sources: 18 Document Type:Essay Document #:48566821

...Vaccination Nurses are always considered helpers and the profession is widely regarded as one for compassionate and helping individuals. The Nursing’s Social Policy Statement is a work that seeks to detail the many ways in which nurses can assist others. How nurses relate with the society is through a relationship. A relationship that is sort of a social contract complete with expectations from both sides. The relationship allows nurses to carry out their professional duties in the provision of care to individual clients and to the society. It also empowers nursing practitioners to engage in policymaking, legislative and political action for the purposes of improving the provision of care, improving nursing practice, improving nursing research, and improving nursing education. It also enables nurses to comprehend the concepts of justice and social ethics and the roles they play in individual and societal health (Fowler, 2015). This work discusses the nursing social contract……

Viral Gastroenteritis Diagnosis Case Assessment

Pages: 1 (393 words) Sources: 2 Document Type:Essay Document #:53209308

...Vaccination Viral Gastroenteritis Diagnosis
Based on the symptoms presented, the child could be suffering from viral gastroenteritis (or what is commonly referred to as the stomach flu). In basic terms, this is an intestinal infection that is in most cases developed either via the ingestion of water or food that is contaminated, or via contact with an infected person. It should be noted that in the present scenario, the 5-year-old attends daycare. Thus, he could have gotten the infection through close contact with an infected child. Some of the symptoms associated with viral gastroenteritis include, but they are not limited to, low-grade fever, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain/cramps, diarrhea, etc. Indeed, in the words of Churgay and Aftab (2012), “acute gastroenteritis in children is often defined as the onset of diarrhea in the absence of chronic disease, with or without abdominal pain, fever, nausea, or vomiting” (1060). The child’s symptoms mimic the……
