Recent Question/Assignment

Introduction
Module 7 is concerned with a variety of infectious diseases, its causes and transmission, host immune response and management of disease. There is a wide range of pathogens responsible for disease in humans, animals and plants. In this task, you will focus on the impact of infectious diseases on human populations during epidemics and pandemics.
Your task involves 5 parts (A, B, C, D and E).
Part A:
Create a tact sheet which provides information about Dengue Fever. This fact sheet should be one A4 page. The fact sheet can be single or double sided but ensure it is clear and concise for your target audience whic is the general public in South East Asia. You may also want to include relevant pictures to capture the attention of your audience.
This fact sheet must include the following:
- Scientific name
- Cause
- Mode of Transmission
- Host Response/Symptoms
- Strategies to prevent, control and treat disease
Part B:
Dengue fever is not endemic in Australia, which means the virus isn't here permanently/continuously. The majority of Australian confirmed cases acquired their infection overseas. The following data provide information about the number of overseas acquired cases of Dengue fever in Australia in 2017 and 2018.
State Number of overseas acquired cases in 2017
ACT 15
NSW 324
NT 40
QLD 302
SA 24
