Infectious diseases for all


Infectious diseases known to mankind since ancient times. Epidemics covered vast territories, including whole states and peoples. It is not without reason that infectious diseases received the name of “mora diseases” Prevention of infectious diseases, the fight against them at all times and among all nations represented the most serious public problem.
It should be emphasized that the infectious process is one of the most complex biological processes in nature, and infectious diseases are terrible destructive factors for human society, causing enormous economic damage.
The euphoria of the 50s-70s of our century about the successful fight against infections and the complete elimination of some of them turned out to be premature. Only one infectious disease - smallpox - can be considered conditionally eradicated on the planet, because, despite the almost twenty-year period of absence of its official registration, the virus of the disease persists in a number of laboratories, and the layer of non-immune people is very significant and constantly increasing.
On the other hand, the number of new, previously unknown to science infections is increasing. It is enough to remind that if in the 50s there were about a thousand infectious diseases, now there are more than 1200 of them, hence the emergence of new problems (AIDS, Lyme disease, legionellosis, etc.) both for specialists and for society as a whole.
In recent years, in our country, as a result of a significant deterioration in the social conditions of the population, infectious morbidity tended to increase.
This was aided by trouble with water supply and sewage systems, late identification of sources of infection, late medical attention, etc.
Of particular importance is the medical ignorance, sometimes medical illiteracy of the population. This results in a later visit to a doctor and late hospitalization of infectious patients (diphtheria, borreliosis, Lyme disease, etc.). Health care is facing serious challenges in the prevention and control of infectious diseases. The difficulties of implementing these tasks in the current difficult conditions of our society are obvious. Therefore, it is necessary to use the entire arsenal of means and methods at our disposal to normalize the epidemiological situation and reduce infectious morbidity.
The purpose of this book is to help a wide range of people in recognizing infectious diseases, as well as what a particular sign (symptom) of an infectious disease indicates, how to behave when an infectious patient appears in a family, in an apartment, how to provide first aid, and so on. etc., etc.
