Today’s world has become a much smaller place than it ever was before. People are more connected and there is a better reach to one another. This globalization has made it possible for great things and advancements in the world like health care and education to the poor and needing communities that are of international standards and also helping to grow commerce around the world. People are now able to operate and do business with thousands of other people simply because the world is now more connected. However, with this globalization, a new threat has entered into the world that was not a threat a few tens of years ago. with people able to get across borders more easily, it has now also made it very easy for disease to spread across borders quickly, making a disease in one country a threat to all other countries. This was never better highlighted than with the spread of the Ebola virus. While thankfully the spread of this disease was well contained and its spread was not as bad as it could have been, it showed the potential danger that is present.
In order to fight this ever growing threat, governments and international communities are putting the responsibility of communal safe keeping down to those people and businesses in the community. One of the best ways to fight the spread of disease is to remove the disease carrying agent as much as possible where ever possible. This was highlighted in countries where the dengue fever is present. People or organizations in these countries are being forced to make sure that their immediate environments are kept clean with laws and communal threat eradication programs such as mosquito fogging singapore which, if successful is able to remove the threat of diseases like this.
Keeping a clean environment also helps fight against other disease bearing pests like mice, that can carry deadly diseases like rabies. These diseased seem simple enough to contain in theory, however due to not everyone being eager to protect themselves, a community can easily suffer. This is one reason laws to fight disease spread are so important, so that one person or entity could not harm the wellbeing of a community.
If it is possible to take steps such as making sure the environment is clean, it is possible to improve the quality of life of a lot of people in that community because everyone will be involved in safe guarding and protecting themselves. Thus making the fight against diseased much, much stronger and much more effective.
