Are these sentence types correct?
scientists are studying past diseases such as the Spanish flu, they
constantly worry about the next pandemic to strike.
Various research facilities, such as the World Health Organization, are continually studying various new diseases, and tracking old diseases.
Because the W.H.O. continues to track older strands of the
influenza virus, it records the evolution of a virus, and may be the
to warn the world of a new disease.

Your first sentence is labeled correctly.
A compound sentence has two independent clauses. The sentence you labeled as compound is a simple sentence.
The sentence you labeled compound- complex is a complex sentence. Compound-complex sentences have two independent clauses plus one or more dependent clauses.
