                  As I read this case study, it says that there are 200 cases of severity of respiratory diseases. A hypothesis that I can comment is that maybe people there are not using face masks to protect themselves from dusts particles that can damage their lungs when inhaled. It is an alarming case that there are 200 cases recorded associated with seven deaths.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

  • Severe respiratory disease such as  lung cancer, pneumonia  and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are the biggest contributors to the causes of death worldwide which causes an increase in hospital admissions.
  • Poor communities are areas that have chances of smoking habits of people,  air pollution and exposure to occupational hazards.

There are national respiratory programs that are focused on developing a healthy approach to stopping respiratory diseases and to help people with an underlying respiratory condition.
