We all know how the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but a few weeks ago, a local news station asked the question, “What do dread disease policies cover?” The answers were so diverse and the variety of answers that I thought it was a good time to add some of my own.
I’m not sure that there is such a thing as a “dread disease policy” for a disease. I think that the common phrase is “disease prevention and control.
Actually, there is. It’s called a disease control policy. It’s basically a policy that’s meant to prevent a disease that is considered a “fatal disease” from killing people. If that sounds like something you might know, this list will hopefully help you out with it.
For the record, I haven’t been able to find any information on how to prevent a dread disease from being killed from killing people, or how to prevent a virus from being killed from being killed.
There are some diseases that have no cure, but have a vaccine. These diseases are known as vaccine-preventable diseases. They can be caused by viruses or bacteria, but can also be caused by other diseases. One example of a vaccine-preventable disease is smallpox. When smallpox first started to spread through Europe in the early 1600s, doctors stopped vaccinating people who had it. These people were left to die of the disease.
It may be that smallpox is the disease that we’re talking about here, but smallpox is known to be the one that comes with the greatest fear of all. People who have it fear that it will be able to spread among the very people they come into contact with. This is why the WHO (who are responsible for protecting people from deadly diseases) has a list of the diseases that they kill with the greatest fear.
For example, Ebola is known to be among the most deadly and contagious diseases. It is also an incredibly deadly virus that is capable of spreading the disease to an unlimited number of people. As such, it is a disease that needs to be contained by the WHO.
Fear of Ebola is often a great motivator for the WHO to do something about it. Imagine if the WHO was able to stop Ebola from spreading? That would be great. It would have to be the WHO that has a lot of power over a lot of people to prevent it.
Well, maybe not quite that bad since the WHO has its own authority. But it would be a huge victory for them to prevent Ebola from spreading. It would also be a major win for them since Ebola is a highly contagious disease. It would be like we have a disease that has been eradicated, and we can’t even get it on our own. I guess that’s the best analogy I can come up with.
This is actually the type of situation that the WHO has been striving to prevent for a long time. For example, every year since the 1930s, the WHO has been attempting to reduce the number of people that die from malaria. The idea is if you could prevent malaria from spreading, you would save lots of lives. But as we know, the WHO is a very bureaucratized organization, so the numbers of people that die from malaria are very low.
