Hospitals in some countries, including India, are managed and often owned by doctors. They refuse to share information about existing infections and often categorically deny they have a problem. Reporting infections to public health authorities is not mandatory, and so hospitals that fail to say anything are not penalized. Even now, the WHO and the CDC do not have accurate and up-to-date information about the spread of E. coli or other infections, and part of the reason is that for-profit hospitals are reluctant to do anything to diminish their bottom line.
Syria and Yemen are among those countries that are so weak and fragmented that they cannot effectively coordinate public healthcare. But their governments are also hostile to external organizations that offer relief. Part of the reason is xenophobia, but part is that this makes the government look bad. Relatedly, most poor-nation governments do not trust the efficacy of international institutions, and think that cooperating with them amounts to a re-importation of imperialism. They would rather their own people suffer and die than ask for needed help.
Creating Conditions for Infections to Spread
Superbug infections spread for several interlocking reasons. Some are medical-epidemiological. Most of the infections of the past thirty years have started in one place and in one family. As already noted, they spread because many infectious diseases are highly contagious before the onset of symptoms, and because it is difficult to prevent patients who know they are sick from going to hospitals, work, and school, or from traveling further afield.
But again, one reason for the problem is political, not medical. Many governments have no strategies in place to prevent pandemics because they are unwilling to tell their people how infections spread. They don’t want to worry people with such talk; it will make them, they fear, unpopular. So governments may have mountains of bureaucracy with great heaps of rules and regulations concerning public health, but they are generally unwilling to trust their own citizens to use common sense on their own behalf. This, too, seems very strange.
Until now, no one has come forward to help us develop strategies to educate people how to identify and prevent the spread of infection to their families and communities. The majority of stakeholders have also been oblivious to the use of new technologies to help reduce the spread of these infections. There are some exceptions. In a fun blog post called Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse, the CDC uses the threat of a zombie outbreak as a metaphor to encourage people to prepare for emergencies, including pandemics. It is well meaning and insightful, yet when my colleagues and I try to discuss ways of scaling up the CDC’s example with doctors and nurses, they shut down. Nobody plans for an actual crisis partly because it is too scary and hence paralyzing to think about. But it is also because it is not most health professionals’ job; it is not what they are trained and paid to do. It is always someone else’s job, except that it has turned out to be nobody’s job.
Worse, the situation is not static. While we sit paralyzed, superbugs are evolving. Epidemiological models now predict how an algorithmic process of disease spread will move through the modern world. All urban centers around the entire globe can become infected within sixty days because we move around and cross borders much more than our ancestors did, thanks to air travel. A new pandemic could start crossing borders before we even know it exists. A flu-like disease could kill more than 33 million people in 250 days.3
End Of Social Care
Sad to say the end of "Social Care" is likely to end the best healthcare service in the world. Healthcare providers in UK are now advising you not to consult doctors if you are suffering from a cough, cold, or flu and other common ailments. We think this is unethical because “The physician’s fundamental role is to alleviate the distress of his or her fellow human beings, and no motive, whether personal, collective or political, shall prevail against this higher purpose”.
This service has been piloted in north London at 10 practices in Barnet and Enfield and has proved so successful that its founders now plan to roll it out, with national coverage expected by 2018.
Airline And Travel Industry
Insecticide resistance already widespread
World Health Organisation has released statement stating insect resistance is wide spread. All major malaria vector species and all four recommended classes of insecticides. Since 2010, a total of 61 countries have reported resistance to at least one class of insecticide, with a 50 of those countries reporting resistance to 2 or more classes. However, our understanding of the extent of the problem is incomplete, because:
many countries do not carry out adequate routine monitoring for insecticide resistance in local vectors; and
monitoring data are often not reported in a timely manner.
Air lines, trains and buses travelling from country to another is now finding it hard to operate because of pests and insects that are resistant to chemicals and cleaning solution that does not clear germs and insects. We have proposed changes and also offering screening method to help reduce spreading infections.
Before booking an appointment in private or NHS, please refer and read all about the symptoms in this book or check using our Apps. This is what we expect the doctors to advice and or offer treatment. eBook can be stored in your smart phone and refer when you are travelling.
Majority of innovations, advances in knowledge and science occurred following a vision. We believe it is important not to through harmful chemicals or drugs that kill the friendly micro-organisms that have lived on earth for more than three billions of years. We must learn to "Live & Let Live" and help them fight their battle and kill superbugs.
