2. Why do you think the plague has been such a problem in the past? What effects has the plague had? The plague has been a problem in the past because people did not have much knowledge of the disease, therefore there was no cure. And people did not know how to reduce their risks of contracting the disease. Due to this over 100 million individuals were killed. 3. Why do you think it is so difficult to eliminate the risk of ringworm? What factors influence the spread of ringworm? It is difficult to eliminate the risk of ringworm because it grows in environments that are similar to our homes. Also they can live for long periods of time and are extremely contagious. Which in turn have affected many people, stalling the ability to eliminate the risk.

4. Which of the zoonotic diseases discussed in the unit do you think you would be most interested in studying? Why? The zoonotic disease I would be most interested in studying would be the hantavirus. I would like to research much more on the origin of the disease. As well as how rodents develop and or contract the disease. In doing this, we would be able to prevent a mutation earlier on that could potentially make the virus be transmitted from human to human. 5. Why do you think some zoonotic diseases have been used for bioterrorism throughout history? Some zoonotic diseases have been used for bioterrorism throughout history because they are fatal and can’t be controlled. Wiping out millions in a matter of time. Which is a huge factor in what bioterrorism is used for in time of warfare.

    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.
