The reason why smallpox could pose such a great threat is precisely that it has been eliminated, and few Americans born after 1973 have received vaccines. As the population on our planet continues to increase, and as issues like global climate change arise, the threat of emerging infectious diseases intensifies. In addition, many of USAID’s global health programs (like many CDC global health programs) support general health systems strengthening in developing countries, which can include activities to build surveillance and laboratory capacities that have applications for EIDs as well.

Respiratory complications include, rarely, upper airway obstruction due to pharyngeal or paratracheal lymphadenopathy; respiratory complications may respond to corticosteroids. This occurs most often in children and debilitated and immune incompetent adults. Other organizations with important roles include the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) – since many EIDs have origins in animals 8 – and the World Trade Organization (WTO) – since sound trade practices can help prevent and address outbreaks.

Paroxysms (short, sudden bursts) of staccato-like coughing can occur up to 50 times per day and can be followed by a characteristic "whoop" resulting from the vigorous inhalation following the coughing fit. It's pretty hard, though, because you take it off for a while or you put your hands to your mouth or your nose and you can continue to spread disease. If bacterial meningitis is suspected, antibiotics should be administered even before the spinal fluid is collected to confirm the diagnosis.
