Let’s face the facts: Infectious diseases are here to stay

We have been fighting infectious diseases for centuries. Pandemics and public health emergencies remind us that there is always more we can do to protect our organizations, communities, and families.

According to research, many of the root causes of climate change also increase the risk of pandemics. We need to be ready.

COVID-19

facts and figures

We have been seeing a surge in COVID-19 variants of concern that are known to spread more easily and evade the body’s immune system. These variants may decrease the effectiveness of available tools, such as public health measures, diagnostics, drug therapies, and vaccines.

Latest information about COVID-19 variants of concern

* The severity depends on the vaccination status. Unvaccinated people are at much greater risk of 1) being infected and 2) having severe reactions.

MONKEYPOX

facts and figures

Grupo 16531

Monkeypox is currently a public health emergency as the U.S. outbreak has grown into the largest in the world.

The primary
transmission

Although the primary transmission route doesn’t seem to be airborne; there is evidence that it can spread through contact with “respiratory secretions.”

Grupo 17156

Transmission via respiratory secretions usually requires prolonged face-to-face contact, which puts health workers, household members, and other close contacts of active cases at greater risk.

There are 31,799 confirmed global cases of monkeypox*

31,424 of which are in locations that have not historically reported monkeypox before.

*As of date

Grupo 17160

As with COVID-19 — wearing a mask and maintaining 6 feet of distance is still a good idea, particularly in parts of the country where monkeypox cases are high.

transmission

Direct contact with monkeypox rash seems to be the primary route of infection. However, touching contaminated objects & contact with respiratory secretions have also been reported.
