Hi Dxj Pls help Due on 02/15/12 In 2007 Andrew Speaker

Customer Question

Hi Dxj Pls help

Due on 02/15/12

In 2007 Andrew Speaker was diagnosed with an extremely drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis. Despite knowing his diagnosis, he traveled by commercial airplane to Europe to be married and to go on his honeymoon. He tried to re-enter the United States through Canada where he was eventually quarantined by the CDC. This was a very controversial case for many reasons and has implications on the role that various governmental agencies should play in the health threats such as tuberculosis.

Research the Andrew Speaker case to familiarize yourself with the relevant facts of this case, including both biological and legal aspects. Consider these facts in light of the legal and ethical concepts discussed in this week’s chapter on the public health strategies for epidemic disease.

Answer Questions below in 250-350 words:

1) Explain the purpose of containment strategies used to quarantine infectious diseases.
-I think to prevent the infection from spreading and possibly leading to an epidemic.

2) What were Andrew Speaker’s rights? What was he entitled to do?
-I think he had the right to get treatment of his choice.

3) Did he abuse his liberties as a U.S. citizen? Support your response.
-I'm not sure i dont think he did.

4) Was CDC justified in using compulsory powers against him? Support your response.
-In a way they were right to use compulsory power to make he was not spreading the infection

5) What are important implications of this case on how public health agencies address cases of tuberculosis?

-public health agencies may need to constantly evalute policies regarding infectious disease and traveling
