Europe is threatened by 47 infectious diseases, including smallpox (measles), pandemic flu, Ebola and the Zika virus, according to the European Center for the Prevention of These Diseases.

The measles epidemic that is ruling Italy, France and the Balkan countries shows that infectious diseases are still a serious threat in the 21st century.

Despite medical advances and technological innovations, infections are spreading more successfully than ever.

According to a study by the organization "Public Health England", infectious respiratory diseases are still leading among travelers and tourists as they are quickly transmitted and can be fatal.

When it comes to trade and transportation of goods, people in these activities are exposed to diseases transmitted by mosquitoes, as well as hepatitis A and norovirus.

The European Commission recently presented programs and protocols in Athens that should enable a quick reaction in the event of the spread of dangerous infectious diseases and cross-border threats, such as climate change, chemical and radiation-nuclear threats, reports Nezavisne.
