Task 2

Define these terms in your words. If you need help I encourage you to look them up online or better yet go bother your parents to see if they know the answer.

Task 4

Some major diseases that have occured within my lifetime have been HIV/AIDS, H1N1 (Swine Flu), H5N1 (Bird Flu), CoV-2 (SARS), Zika (Rio Olympics 2016) are a few that come to mind and maybe you have heard of them. The one I know you have heard of is the Coronavirus (COVID-19), which you are experiencing as a Pandemic and will remember this time for the rest of your life. When in the classroom I talk about critical incidents.

A critical incident can be defined as any event that has a stressful impact sufficient enough to overwhelm the usually effective coping skills of an individual. Critical incidents are abrupt, powerful events that fall outside the range of ordinary human experiences.

Whether you realize it or not the world is going to change when this all clears. How it will look different I am not sure…possibilities may be…your turn to finish the list. It is okay to ask your parents or call on other students if you need help.

  1. Going to work/school sick
  2. International travel
  3. My RVHS weight room daily sanitation protocols
  4. Flu Season and who is required to get a flu shot

Finally COVID-19 breakdown. Some of you may be able to do this without looking anything up online. Tell me about COVID-19’s Causative Agent, Incubation Period, Symptoms, Mode of Transmission, Long Term Effects, Treatment and Prevention.
