All over the world, there is an increase in cases of infectious diseases. This also includes new and unknown diseases such as Ebola and the novel coronavirus. This increase in infections is continually being investigated so we can answer the crucial question:
Why are infectious diseases on the rise?
In this post, we will answer this vital question while also empowering you to protect yourself from infections.
4 Factors That led in the Emergence of Infectious Diseases
1. We are more connected
Due to the increase in travel, foreign trade and globalization, viruses and bacteria can spread faster from country to country. Before, humans lived in small and isolated areas. But now, humans, animals, and goods can travel quickly across the globe, carrying deadly pathogens with them.
2. Global warming
Due to climate change, we are now experiencing warmer climates than ever before. And studies have shown that some infectious disease carriers, such as mosquitoes, thrive in warmer climates. Hence the faster spread of Zika, Chikungunya, and Dengue Fever (1).
It is expected that these numbers will continue to rise. What’s more, scientists believe that the number of infectious diseases cases will increase much faster because of extreme climates.
In places with lower financial resources, there is more limited healthcare. Also, many people can’t afford the eat healthily or take the necessary preventative measures. Poverty is one of the leading causes of infectious diseases because of these very reasons.
4. Overpopulation & Urbanization
Now that we are in the modern era, many of us reside in large cities. However, despite the many benefits of living in the city, there are some downsides. One is that these areas can become overpopulated, leading to a faster spread of infections. Cities can quickly become the breeding grounds of new and emerging infectious diseases.
Despite these reasons, we should strive to protect ourselves and our families from the spread of infections.
Here is how you can get started.
