What affect does modern transportation have on emerging viruses?
Modern transportation makes it much easier for emerging viruses to travel around the world and infect people. It makes it easier for emerging viruses to travel around the world because with inventions such as planes, if one person has the virus, they are now a carrier for the virus. In a plane, air is recycled, so if the virus is airborne, the virus can potentially infect many people on that plane. Also that plane will land in a different place from where it took off so the carrier would be bringing the virus to a new place. It makes it easier to infect people because with modern transportation like buses and public transit, people are much closer together and easier to infect because of the proximity of each other. These factors attributed by modern transportation give the virus a boost in infecting and spreading.

Modern communication and transportation has affected movement in a significant manner. Movement has become easier and faster due to the various developments in terms of in…frastructure.
Viruses basically attach to a cell, implant off spring, which eat inside to out for nutrients killing the cell, then go to reproduce themselves killing multiple cells. T…hey're like parasites.
A malicious virus can be as harmless as annoying popups to being as serious as complete identity theft.
If your work computer gets a virus it can crash and once crashed you can't work anymore.
viruses latch onto a host cell and injects its own DNA into it, this DNA controls the cell and makes it produce more viruses inside the cell, when these are ready the burst ou…t of the host cell killing it, and land on another cell
Perhaps not the way they are spread but the quantity of people exposed is increased with mass transit of today as well as with travel in crowded airports and other busy transp…ortation hubs.

Because antibiotics are designed to fight bacterial infections, whereas antivirals are used to combat viral infections.

Linux (and other unix-like systems) were designed from the ground up to be secure and allow secure multi-user access and networking. One of the reasons why the Microsoft Windo…ws family of operating systems have so many security holes is that it was originally designed as a single-user system and much of the security has been bolted on as an afterthought. This means that many more (and more severe) holes will exist. There are actually viruses for linux, but they are generally far less effective.
Some common examples of human viruses include the common cold, influenza (such as H1N1 and swine flu), herpes (cold sores), and chickenpox (Varicella zoster or VZV). More seri…ous viral diseases include AIDS (HIV), polio, and ebola. Influenza viruses are spread by coughing and sneezing. The norovirus and rotaviruses, common causes of viral gastroenteritis, are transmitted by the fecal-oral route and are passed from person to person by contact, entering the body in food or water. HIV is one of several viruses transmitted through sexual contact or by exposure to infected blood. Viral infections provoke an immune response that usually eliminates the infecting virus. These immune responses can also be produced by vaccines, which give immunity to specific viral infections. However, some viruses including HIV and those causing viral hepatitis evade these immune responses and cause chronic infections. Microorganisms also have defenses against viral infection, such as restriction modification systems. Antibiotics have no effect on viruses, but several antiviral drugs have been developed.
Computer viruses are not built the same way iPod, iPhone, or iPad apps are built. They will not run, and probably will not for a very, very long time.
Don't affect virues and stop the growth of bacteria
Bacteria and viruses attack the body. Each type of bacteria and virus attack different areas of the body. Also, there are many different ways of gaining access to the body. Th…ey attack the body by trying to shut down a certain system, which without your immune system, would kill you. Bacteria and viruses evolve. However, viruses aren't presently categorized as living organisms.
They tend to be especially dangerous due to two reasons; first, we lack information about them, such as what causes the disease, and secondly, we lack treatments against t…hem. Because viruses can't be treated with antibiotics, they automatically impose a larger threat. Viruses can be fought with vaccines; however, we don't have these for emerging viruses.
