People actually just packed up their life and moved away. Mark Sauer, a Polio Survivor is quoted with saying that Polio ‘was the robber of hope for a generation, several generations of children, there were many other diseases that were bad for America, but Polio broke its heart.’ The disease did not seem to have rhyme or reason and acted much like a tornado, affecting some but not others. With the absence of any concrete knowledge on how to stop the spread of Polio, panic and hysteria took over. Sunday schools closed and children under the age of 16 were not allowed to attend local theaters. Medical professionals and scientists initially blamed the spread on the filth and overcrowding in the immigrant neighborhoods.
Its almost like a lot of families couldn’t recoup from the whole thing. So starving people were always there. Also the dip in the economy in 2008 which made people lose their jobs took the turn for the worst.

The lack of school material, clothes, or even living in terrible conditions can lead to the not reaching their full potential due to the lack of motivation. The government in 2012 released 3.5 billion dollars to The Native American Reservations, which for 350,000 people is equivalent to 1000 dollars (Volz, “$3.4B Indian Lawsuit Ends, Disbursements to Begin”). However, how far might this money go in a struggling household? The insufficient environment that Native Americans live in is nothing like we might find in any cities in the Northwest. The lack of motivation caused by years of not having a job and watching your family suffer in poverty is a condition that not too many of us are familiar with.
Anyone that the plague came upon, caused reddening stains on the face and the body would appear, which caused the individual to be thrown in a secluded quarantine factory. This disease appeared in over less than an hour. During this time no one could find the cure for this impeccable disease. As time goes on mass destruction is steady rising in the city. When President Toro heard of this distraught news he was horrified of the mass destruction that was going on.
According to “Document D”, in 1607 August through October “Summer sickness kills half the colonists” The summer of 1607 was so severe that it killed 50 people. This was more than half of the amount of people left. They in anyway couldn’t have known that such an aggressive summer would hit them. Unlike the 21 century, the colonists then did not have radars which could predict how the summer would be. They could not have saved

In March 2012 four-year-old Daniel Pelka was brutally murdered by his mother and her partner. As the shocking news hit the headlines it quickly became apparent that his death resulted from months of abuse and neglect. And the saddest part is, that his death could have been prevented. Failure in social care led to Daniel becoming “invisible” in a system that was in place to protect him. A serious case review found Daniel Pelka, was simply "not heard" at times and "no professional tried sufficiently hard enough" to talk to him.
And 80% would die within a week. Back then thay had lack of medical knowledge and they tried anything to cure the disease but nothing would work. The towns and cities faced food shortage.
