How Does Globalization Impact Diseases
What is Globalization?
Globalization is the flow of information, goods, and capital.
What are the models of disease transition?
-Animals such as mosquitoes, rats, foxes, ticks, bats, and other insects spread a lot of infectious diseases.
-Diseases can be spread by air, water, blood, and through insects or other creatures that carry germs from one species to another.
-Germs, people, outbreaks, etc. are other causes of infectious diseases.
What diseases get spread and how?
-Infectious diseases get spread, diseases such as Lyme, bubonic plague, malaria, HIV, meningitis, and more.
-Bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans, and worms are also causes of infectious disease, but not all the time.
-Diseases that spread from Europe to Asia were bubonic plague, influenza of similar types, and similar disease.
-Malaria comes from mosquitoes, and Lyme disease comes from ticks.
This is the transition of spreading a disease from from a vertebrate to a human. This is also something that when vertebrates spread a disease, nothing happens to them.

My Research Questions!
Mosquitoes flew in here.
India is high on mosquitoes, which is why children in India are given shots of Malaria.
- This can cause nerve damage and skin lesions, but also damages peripheral nerves and skin.
- It begins as an infection, and later on causes skin disease coming near infected nerves.
- Leprosy is curable, but deformities and nerve damage are often irreversible.
Mycro-Bacterium Tuberculosis
- This is generally spread when an infected person inhales the bacteria.
- Air travel and the other methods of travel which have made global interaction easier have increased spread of TB across different societies.
- This is an example of sitting next to a sick person in a flight.
Another place with the most infectious diseases is Ukraine. Diseases here re HIV, Tuberculosis, and Enteric Fever.
* Ukraine
* Ethiopia
-This is one of the places with the most diseases.
-This place has NO medical care access, very few physicians, very low life expectancy, and extremely high infant and maternal mortality.
- Diseases here are malaria, meningitis, cholera, and yellow fever.
Places with a lot of infectious diseases.
Bubonic Plague
Bubonic Plague was spread by fleas that lived on black rats, an animal in South Asia spread to Euorope in the 6th century.
Smallpox is a highly contagious disease caused by the Variola virus. It caused/causes in other countries, many deaths.
* Variola- technical term for smallpox.
* Protozoans- a single-celled microscopic animal of a group of phyla.
* Influenza- a highly contagious viral infection of the respiratory passages causing fever, severe aching, and catarrh, and often occurring in epidemics.
* Enteric- of, relating to, or occurring in the intestines.
