After the devastating typhoon in which Philippines have been strucked with,many people were left homeless without food not shelter.Many people are unable to obtain drinkable water due to its shortages.Many illnesses such ascholera,hepatitis,malaria,dengue fever and typhoid fever can be found in many victims today.Although many doctors and nurses are on scene, The amount of victims that were hit from the typhoon surpase the numbers of doctors therefore many death a occuring from the lack of doctors.Researchers have found out a new parasitic disease which is an epidemic could surge out any moment.Many citizens in philippines are burying their dead cautionsly from all the diseases dead bodies may contain.Many vaccines shortages are happening since so many people obtained a disease that the supply is running out.All of the population in the Philippines are at risk of  tetanus at any time.About 4000 people have been injured during the typhoon and 2357 have been reported dead.Many docotrs come to the conclusion of Philippines geographic location and with the water mixtures from the typhoon,it created a misture therefore more disease were spread through the typhoon and the air afterwards.Many people are suffering from respiratory infections due to the polluted air and debris everywhere.

 

In my opinion i think what we are seeing in the Philippines is just a beginning of what our world is doing it itself.In our future we might experience or see at television other areas where they ahae been struck with a natural disaster. i feel like our impacts on earth is going to play against us one moment and we will be the ones sufering.We all live on Earth and i feel we should all be helping each oher.This world is all about my ressources and not a  lot of sharing.We are a huge family living on this earth but we are killing our earth and killing the ecosystem.We all have the right to live on earth and why wouldnt we help someone who is in trouble.If a country is in trouble we must help them to rebuilt itself and make sure tht our world doesnt crumble to the sea.We must do what is right and humain.
