Why Diseases Strike Back?
Diseases are caused due to many reasons. Some of the primary reasons are unhealthy surroundings, malnutrition, pollution, and carelessness. Unfortunately, all these reasons are present in plenty in our country. If one looks around, one finds fly and pest-infested garbage dui.ps, overflowing gutters and sewer lines, stagnating water in potholes on the roads, and a ‘couldn’t care less’ attitude of the general public towards it. Overflow ing garbage and exploding population together have shaken the foundation of the health infrastructure of the country. The creation of new health facilities are not keeping pace with the increasing number of patients. All the general and public hospitals are overflowing with dirt and patients. The situation has come to such a pass that instead of healing the patients the hospitals are playing an active role in the spread of diseases. Vaccinations and preventive medicines are overused, with a result the disease spreading agents have developed an immunity towards them. It is because of all the above-mentioned reasons that many diseases thought to be vanquished by mankind like malaria, small-pox, etc. are returning with renewed vigor and in more virulent forms.
