Problems that micro-
organisms can cause after a
natural disaster and what
solutions have been
developed to overcome these
Micro-organisms are tiny living things that
cannot be seen with the naked eye, it can be
seen using a microscope. There are different
types of micro-organisms such as
bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi and protozoa.
Natural disasters are not caused by men but is
caused by our natural environment. Our
environment is our surrounding nature of
plants and trees of all types and sizes.
What happens to micro-organisms
after a natural disaster?
After natural disasters like
hurricane, floods, tsunami, tornadoes and
earthquakes causes diseases. These diseases are
caused by micro-organisms. People who were
injured during a natural disaster should have a
medical evaluation to determine what additional
care may be required for wounds potentially
contaminated with soil, or saliva, or that have been
exposed to fresh or sea water that could be
contaminated with parasites or bacteria.
Effects natural disasters cause
It mostly effects everyone and everything
within it’s range. Sometime it also takes effect
around the world because of people leaving the
country with a disease after a natural disaster.
Natural disaster are not the only thing that
effects the world, there is also disasters that are
caused by humans themselves, it is called a
man made disaster. A man made disaster can
also be global warming.
What Sicknesses Are Caused
The sickness that can be caused can be
ranged from fever to gastro. Some
countries need vaccinations to prevent
sickness from spreading. Sickness can be
spread by any contact made with other
people. The micro-organism that causes
these sickness/illness is mainly caused by
Australia’s common natural
The most common natural disaster in Australia
are floods. Floods are caused by heavy rain that
causes oceans, seas and lakes to overflow. When
it overflows it starts to come to shore and
eventually floods the place. Sometimes the
flood is not too bad and only floods a little.
Micro-organisms are helpful and unhelpful but
in this case it is unhelpful because it causes
disease. Avoid making any contact with other
people to prevent passing micro-organisms.
Making contact to spread is as simple as
coughing or sneezing in a persons face Wash
your hands when you touch something
dirty, after using the toilet, touching something
that many other people have touched and
before and after eating.
When you get an injection to put some
type of liquid in your body to prevent any
sort of sickness in your body is called
vaccinations. Sometimes in some countries
everyone has to get a vaccination after a
natural disaster to prevent illness. They
also need to check if they already caught a
disease. This is done to protect other
citizen to catch the disease.
