    Had just read forum discussion re ticks.

    Above is a handy cyber reference list for some of the diseases to include:
    - African Tick-Bite Fever
    - Tick-borne Encephalitis

    I did notice above link omits something I still have remnants of : Kala Azar. It's from sand flies and probably has more than 1 name.

    My use of the CDC link is primarily because it is easy to load and usually - but not always - I get human answers to my questions routed to them via their "further info" link.

    I think as far as post SHTF diseases are concerned the main ones we want to worry about are Cholera and Typhoid, these seem to be present after every major disaster.

    Lone Wolf,

    Agree.

    My triangular sense of symmetry requires me to also mention the downstream - whether measured in hours or days - mosquito-borne pathogens following the cholera and typhoid.

    disease will be greatest where the most number of survivors are, that's why all these tented "rescue" villages are full of disease, hygiene and sanitation being sadly lacking.

    Lone Wolf,

    Merci; I vaguely remember Thucydides.

    If those tented "rescue" villages are public sector provided emergency shelters: Yes, they are disease-laden from the initial opening and then it gets worst. Our co-located animal shelter for emergencies is cleaner and healthier.

    If I must work the emergency shelter, I'd be up and working during the night. For a couple of daytime naps, it is well known among the responders that I'll be resting with the dogs. Their area is cleaner, quieter, more tranquil. The registrants appreciate the responders - and I'll get some affection. Many a literary figure explained this.
