How vaccinations can control disease
Vaccines can be widely administrated to people all over the world to stop the spread of
disease i.e. vaccinating someone against a disease in the UK which is currently only in
China would prevent the disease from posing any threat to the UK. Vaccinations are also
more effective than just treating patients as the catch the disease as this gives the
opportunity for the disease to spread and it also causes the likelihood of resistant strains
to arise as often people do not administrate the treatment properly allowing resistant
strains to form. So in summary vaccination is all about treating the cause not the
symptoms.
How Governments have reacted to disease (using Highly Pathogenic Avian
Influenza as an example
Animals thought to be carrying the disease were immediately culled and Governments set
up a compensation scheme to encourage farmers to help contain HPAI effectively (50%
of the lives. And the production, consumption and sale of poultry probucts was banned in
Jhapa, samples were also taken from major cities in the area but found no traces which
shows that the precautions were effective. So culling the poultry and stopping the trade
and consumption of poultry products proved to be effective against the spread of this
disease.
