The first case in the United States of a deadly virus that surfaced in Saudi Arabia in 2012 was reported in Indiana. The Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus, or MERS-CoV, infection was confirmed by a traveler in Saudi Arabia. The patients are hospitalized, and in isolation.
"We have been preparing since 2012 for this possibility." said by Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the CDC. This virus has infected 401 people in 12 countries since it appeared in September 2012 and has killed 93 people.
This virus first emerged in China in 2002 and infected 8,000 people worldwide. MERS causes severe pneumonia, however, unlike SARS, which tended to affect younger and healthier people, MERS appears to mainly infect people with underlying chronic conditions.
This case reminds us that we are all connected by the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. The symptoms, including shortness of breath, coughing and fever.
Experts are also unsure how the virus spreads, and there is no specific treatment or available vaccine.
To protect against this illness avoid touching their eyes, noses and mouths; wash their hands often; avoid coming into close contact with people who are sick; and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
The topic I found interesting is what is the real cause of the Syrian Revolution. I think it was because the president Bashar al-Assad. He had the power to help prevent the drought and stop people from cutting down the trees because that is one of the main reason why there is a huge drought. Also the they have no farm land and that hurt over millions of people. Next, the hotbed of the riot, seething with anger as living costs soared and jobs remained scarce. Syria rapidly growing young population was also was very bad and also played a big role in why the Syrian War started. The fear of the state is one of the reasons why so many Syrians simply take the government as a part of life. The protest of Syria started from the brutal response to the security forces. Lastly, the Syrians was feared that was not broken at that time.

Automobile accident are the number one cause of teenager deaths. It ranges from huge age from 15-29 years old kids. Teenager are under a lot of stress which is a recipe to getting in crashes. It is important that teenagers make the best decision that they could make while they are driving. They need to be cautious, focus, and stay committed to being safe behind the wheel. Children thy are more stress tend to get into more accidents. I know the stress that teenagers have, so when I drive, I will be more attentive and realize that I can kill someone or myself only because of stress.
A study showed that people that are more disciplined and neat at the age of 26 were more healthy years later than others.
