with a title / topic of

Epidemiology of Respiratory Transmitted Diseases

Here are the 66 power point slides having a rich and up to date content.. (PDF, 3.7 MB)


A few tips to be kept in mind                                  :

  • Many leading causes of death receive little mainstream attention. If news reports reflected what children died from, they would say that around 1,400 young children die from diarrheal diseases, 1,000 die from malaria, and 1,900 from respiratory infections – every day.
  • Acute respiratory tract infections are the most common illnesses in all individuals,
    regardless of age or gender.ØEpidemiologic surveys and community-based studies conducted since the beginning of the 20th century have determined the rates of illness and the pathogens involved in such infections.
  • Acute respiratory tract infections (ARI) are the main cause of morbidity and mortality among children aged <5 years in the developing world.
  • Respiratory viruses are spread via three different transmission routes: contact, droplet, and aerosol transmission.
  • Respiratory viruses can be transmitted via 4 major modes of transmission:
    Direct (physical) contact, indirect contact (fomite), (large) droplets and (fine) aerosols.

As considering fight against Covid-19 pandemic, as a basicly respiratory transmitted infection, current content of slides, no doubt should be of valuable and important for all users.
