The Spread of Disease and Transmission Awareness

When we think of the spread of widespread disease there is usually a focus on how to stop the initial susceptibility to the specific virus. But once the disease is out into the world and difficult to quarantine, it is usually much more of an involved task to get the strain of disease treated or eventually die out. This involves high amounts of communication between various networks and groups of people to develop methods that control the possible devastating effects of the disease. The changes in behavior that people have in response to the outbreak of disease can determine the outcome of the progression of the viral agent. Too many times has there been an outbreak of some contagious disease and the general population has not taken the necessary precautions to keep themselves safe from contracting and spreading the agent.

There have been several ways of clustering people together to protect the spread of disease. This has decreased the overall devastation of potentially viral diseases and the mortality rates through the years alongside the progression of medicine. The network that advises people what to do in epidemic situations and develops methods to transport medicine and advice to people in need has saved many lives. This is just one of the ways networks work in epidemics and our daily lives.
