When it comes to outbreaks, it must be identified, and it needs to be given to the people that need it the most which included the population and the world. When it comes to the information required what is most necessary is the age groups that the virus is affecting and understanding the information that is provided. With proper documentation it will be able to identify the groups that needs the most help and it will be able to provide the necessary resources needed for the locations that involve the patients.
Age Groups Most Affected
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), children, pregnant women, and seniors are especially vulnerable and take a relatively high share of the disease burden (WHO, 2017). When it comes to reviewing the information that was provided the it will state that the highest rate that is going for diseases are higher for the age under 18, when it comes to 61 and over, the ages between 31 to 60, and between the ages of 19 to 30 which decides which one are the most vulnerable groups.
Age Groups Least Affected
When it comes to the age group that were not affected then it will be between 19 to 30 years old and the ages between 31 to 60. When it comes to this age group it is mostly because they tend to be healthier in general because there immune system. One of the reasons these age groups are least affected is because these tend to be the healthier ages in general, so their immune systems are likely more tolerant and vigilant (Vos et al., 2016).
The evaluation that is presented above is the age groups that are least affected which are 19 to 30 years old. Individual influences lead to virus occurrences that can be recognized in nearly all incidents (Morse, 1995). This does not just show the age group and location but shows what are the odds of something happening and what to look out for because this allows the population to know the risks of their locations.
When it comes to the prevalence rate for disease than it varies among different ages among the cities. The population of the United States in 12/18/2017 is 325,365,189. (United States Census Bureau, 2017). But to be able to find the prevalence rate is per 100,000 for this disease, the by the number of infections by an age group which divides by the population, which then multiplies by 100,000. Presented below is the five cities affected by the disease by age group.
|City||<18 Prevalence Rate||19-30 Prevalence Rate||31-60 Prevalence Rate||61+ Prevalence Rate|
Having the necessary information is needed to be able to help find resources or care for a cure for the diseases presented. When it comes to diseases it is always recommended to have the age group because it filters numbers and people to help discover a cure. But to be able to have a healthier population then it is needed to have data to better resources for the needed population.
