The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention underestimated the threat from the emerging outbreak of the coronavirus in the US — and bungled. “When you don’t have enough information or you don’t have accurate information, the fear you’re feeling makes every threat seem much more likely,” said. however, most likely underestimate the burden of infectious diseases.
For example, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9) distributes infectious diseases across several categories, obscuring their public health impact (e.g., the classification of endocarditis among cardiovascular diseases and the classification of meningitis. The polarization could hardly be clearer: although roughly half (47 per cent) of Americans agree with the scientific consensus that the virus is a major threat to the health of the U.S. population. Infectious Diseases are the biggest threat to global health” “Infectious diseases constitute a major problem for the world, but even more so in the developing world” (Fonkwo, 2008).
Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be transmitted, directly or. Prospects that the infectious disease threat may not diminish, as compared to noncommunicable diseases, are further butressed by the growing body of evidence that infectious pathogens cause or contribute to many diseases-such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and ulcers-previously thought to be caused by environmental or lifestyle factors. Infectious diseases are a continuing threat to all persons, regardless of age, sex, lifestyle, ethnic background, and socioeconomic status (1). They cause suffering and death and impose a financial burden on society ( Table_1 ) (2-12). Suppressed Study: The EPA Underestimated Dangers of Widespread Chemicals.
