This essay focuses on Emerging Infectious Diseases of Humans.Emerging means newly discovered or newly appearing in humans or newly appearing in a distinctly different geographic area.
A pathogen is a biological agent that causes illness or disease to its host. Emerging means newly discovered or newly appearing in humans or newly appearing in a distinctly different geographic area. Therefore, Emerging Pathogens or Emerging Infectious Diseases are those which have been discovered recently, within the last 10-30 years.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines an emerging disease as “one that has appeared in a population for the first time, or that may have existed previously but is rapidly increasing in incidence or geographic range.” This week, we will examine some emerging pathogens and diseases!

For your first post, you must tell us about your chosen emerging infectious disease pathogen: where and when it was discovered, the signs and symptoms of disease, transmission, course of disease, virulence factors, laboratory diagnosis, treatments, preventions and sequelae. Your discussion should be well-written, in your own words, paraphrasing from only credible academic sources. You may not directly quote from your sources. You must also cite your credible academic reference sources in text and provide full end ref information in APA format. The initial post must be at least 300-400 words and is due by 11:59PM ET Friday.
