thank the age of transportation! (airplanes, ocean liners,etc). With the advent of these technological advances, the likelihood of outbreaks and pandemics increases 100 fold. now an infected patient can often get across boarders or continents without even knowing they are infected, as some of these viruses take up to two weeks to incubate in your system. Then a local mosquito bites you, and bites another person..transferring the sickness to the next, that person may or may not have intercourse with someone, or another mosquito may bite them, then someone else, spreading the pandemic further.. look at the Ebola scare of not that long ago.. how many people came back from helping people overseas and were infected, then those who they had contact with were quarantined... its only a matter of time, not to be a doomsday prophet... its just a matter of odds and statistics.
Before the CDC can get a grapple on the next new virus, it may be already too late to control.
your body is like Lego's, with the right building blocks and imagination you can build anything!
