Tobacco smoke harms childrenSmoking is harmful – the word has long since spread. But many people still don't realize how much children suffer from the vice of their parents and relatives.

"Phew, that stinks", Children often report when someone lights a cigarette near them. Children cannot choose their air. They depend on adults to protect them from the blue haze. Because Tobacco smoke is the most dangerous pollutant in the air she breathes.
Cloud by cloud, the ember cone of a cigarette tip enriches the room air with about 4.000 toxic substances. Many of them are much more concentrated in secondhand smoke than in one puff of a cigarette. Some of the substances, such as formaldehyde and ammonia, are particularly irritating to the respiratory tract. 40 others are even carcinogenic.

While tobacco smoke is also harmful to adults. Children, however, absorb many more pollutants through the air they breathe: they breathe in and out two to three times as much air per minute as adults and therefore absorb more environmental toxins. In addition, the ratio of skin area to body volume is greater in young children, so they also absorb more environmental toxins through this route.

By definition, infectious diseases are illnesses that are transmissible from person to person – or even from animal to animal or animal to person. Causes are Bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. How long an infectious disease lasts, how severe it is and whether it can be cured at all depends on the pathogen and also on the condition of the infected person. Sometimes people or animals are only carriers of the disease, without showing any symptoms themselves.

How infectious diseases are best treated depends on the nature of the disease. While there is still no cure for many viruses, antibiotics are effective against many bacteria. However, as the pathogens are increasingly developing resistance, this form of therapy is considered to be more and more problematic. There are effective remedies for fungal infections, such as skin or nail fungus.

Slums in Kenya The Corona plight of HIV-infected peopleIn Kenya, the Corona pandemic is hitting HIV-infected people particularly hard. In the slums of Nairobi, many of them no longer make it to the doctor. Money is lacking, there is fear of infection – and hunger is growing.

She can no longer leave her corrugated iron hut in the Mathare slum in the Kenyan capital Nairobi under her own steam. After an accident, she had to have her right leg amputated a year and a half ago.

Omia wants to know how Omondi is doing. And whether she is particularly afraid of contracting the corona virus. "No, if you take the drugs regularly, you don't get sick faster than other people", answers Omondi. Nevertheless, she is in big trouble because of the pandemic. "Those whom I used to be able to ask for money or other support, now have nothing either."
