Characteristics Of Sporadic And Endemic Areas For Diarrheal Disease?
Hello, I want to ask. Actually, what causes a region to be classified or categorized as a sporadic area u0026amp; endemic especially for infectious diseases Diarrhea? Can population density be a contributing factor? Please answer yes, thank you.
Endemic disease is a disease that attacks a geographical area or attacks a certain population group. This is much influenced by various factors. Some endemic diseases themselves include infectious diseases such as malaria, hepatitis, leprosy, filariasis, and others. As for the sporadic itself according to the Big Indonesian Dictionary is the spread of disease in an area that is uneven or found here and there.
Endemic areas themselves can be influenced by various aspects such as geographical aspects, social aspects, economic aspects, aspects of facilities and infrastructure in a particular area. In diarrhea itself can occur in areas with population access to inadequate clean water facilities, poor toilet facilities, habits to treat water for consumption, lifestyle or personal hygiene, weather or season factors, triggers for diarrhea such as bacteria, viruses or parasites and various other things that could be a factor. In addition, individual factors can influence such as self-immunity, medical history, vaccination history can also affect the spread of disease.
For more information, you can read textbooks or related literature on the determination of an area as an endemic area, epidemic criteria, or other matters relating to the epidemiology of a disease or population.
