discussion board Past Outbreaks & Covid-19
Learning Goal: I’m working on a health & medical discussion question and need support to help me learn.
After completing this week’s readings, videos, podcasts, and John’s Hopkins Module, compose a post that highlights the management of various outbreaks throughout history. Compare and contrast the trends related to the diseases as highlighted in the following questions:
- What role did cats play in stopping the Bolivian Hemorrhagic Fever epidemic? What part of the Machupo story struck you?
- How did the US manage Leprosy? What is the impact of leprosy in the modern world?
- Have there been ways to approach the management of Lyme Disease and other tickborne illnesses that are like those of other outbreaks?
- What actions from these historical outbreaks might compare to those that have been taken worldwide to contain the COVID-19 pandemic?
Response prompt: Respond to at least two of your peers by asking a question, sharing a thought, or offering an alternative perspective. Your responses should provide opportunities to advance the discussion — do not simply agree or disagree. Your answers should be written in your own words. Do not rely on quotations.
