Where in the Epidemiologic Transition would the Avian Flu fit? The Avian Flu would fit in stage 5 of the Epidemiologic Transition. While it is not completely accepted that there is a fifth stage in the Epidemiologic Transition I believe that  the Avian Flu only fits in this stage.   Why? Avian flu is a modern epidemic that has resurged and is spread through animals. It can affect modern countries that have good health care and sanitation systems. The article  suggests the all too real possibility that the disease could mutate and become communicable between humans. This would mean that Avian Flu would spread in well developed  countries due to the disease being resistant to drugs. Also modern travel would serve the flu well in spreading across the globe because of how interconnected our world is  today. The possible Stage 5 in the Epidemiologic Transition takes into account all of these attributes of the Avian Flu as it is the most modern stage in the model.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
