As the world changes, infectious diseases and their causative agents changes also. A large number of infectious diseases have been discovered in the last 50 years: Ebola fever, avian and swine flu, ZIKA, HIV viral infections, etc. Koksaki viral infection, which is manifested by fever, rashes in the palms and soles, can cause meningitis.

New reasons create favorable conditions for the recurrence of communicable diseases. Irresponsible treatment of nature has created conditions for the development and spread of Ebola, legionellosis, mad cow disease. Another reason is the reactive approach to vaccines. The movement against vaccines interferes with vaccinations and therefore the number of diseases that have not been recorded for many years is increasing. The problem is exacerbated by drugs, alcohol, irresponsible sex life, which is the case to spread of hepatitis, AIDS, etc. Every year, 58 cases of infectious diseases per 1000 inhabitants are recorded. The largest part consists of post-grip complications, diarrhea, diseases distributed by mite.

Lithuania is the country with one of the highest rates of mite - borne diseases in Europe. From all diseases recorded in Lithuania, communicable diseases account for 10 to 20%. One of the most relevant communicable diseases is flu, whose virus changes very quickly, changes its genetic information. The use of antibiotics in unintended and irresponsible use increased bacterial resistance to antibiotics, and increased 100 times Clastridium diff caused by colites.
