Influenza

Influenza

By: Cole and Kanyon Tapp


The symptoms

The Symptoms

  • The symptoms for influenza are more severe and occur faster than most. If you have influenza the symptoms usually occur all at once and not just a single symptom (Decoded Science, 2013).

  • Some of the symptoms are:

    • Fever

    • Headache

    • Sore Throat

    • Fatigue

    • Achy Muscles


The transmission

The Transmission

  • Influenza is transmitted in three ways:

  • By direct contact with infected individual.

  • By contact with contaminated objects.

  • By inhaling the viral-laden aerosols(virology, 2009).


The prevalence

The Prevalence

  • Low Prevalence: below 5 % of the people are affected

  • Moderate Prevalence: around 20% of people are affected (CDC, 2013).

  • High Prevalence: around 40% of people are affected.


The prevention

The Prevention

  • The biggest prevention is getting a vaccine for it, which also isn’t 100% effective (Mayo Clinic, 2013).

  • Little things to help prevent:

    • Washing your hands

    • Containing your coughs and sneezing

    • Avoid big crowds


The treatment

The Treatment

  • Treatments can range in taking many medicines to just doing therapy.

  • Some treatments may target the virus itself or instead just relieve the symptoms.


The impact economic

The Impact: Economic

  • The average cost that influenza has on United states is usually over $35,000,000 and that is excluding distributions to commerce and society.

  • Each vaccine averages around $60 and %60 percent of the United States citizens get the vaccine.


The impact social

The Impact: Social

  • Influenza accounts for around 10% of sickness-related absences from work around the world.

  • It is contagious, so you can’t do your normal daily activities that involve being around people.


The model structure

The Model Structure

  • Hemagglutinin Spike- It is responsible for binding the virus to the cell

  • Neurominidase Spike- it enables the virus to be released from the host cell.

  • Caspid Layer- it helps viruses enter through the cell.
