This dismisses the previous counter argument by showing how the medical education of the time was not knowledgeable of the virus that is the base of rabies and therefore makes it difficult to correctly diagnoses. Furthermore, in the article “Poe’s Death Is Rewritten as Case of Rabies, Not Telltale Alcohol” from The New York Times,it lists the recorded behaviors of Poe at the hospital before his death and compares them to that of a rabies victim claiming that this was a “classic case of rabies”.The article then points out, “Poe refused alcohol and could drink water only with great difficulty. Rabies victims frequently exhibit hydrophobia, or fear of water.” This comparison can lead many to draw the conclusion that Poe had displayed obvious side effects of rabies, making this the only logical theory. Over all after fully considering all of the evidence, the best assumption would be that Poe died of rabies rather than alcohol
Let 's head to NNN 's special laboratory, where the Zika virus is being tested and studied, in Chungju. reporter: Hello, I 'm Nawon. This is where the medicine and treatments are being developed by scientists. The infamous Zika virus still has neither cures nor any significant prevention methods up to this day. Moreover, some have already died in foreign countries.
. It lasts a duration of couple weeks to a month and during this time makes the person significantly ill. The virus can only spread to humans and has no cure/treatment . However, treatment to improve comfort/condition is available. Prevention can be done through vaccination of avoiding of any contact with an infected individual.
It may be directly from the patient, a member of the operating room staff or from other person in the hospital ward. Wound may be infected outside hospital ward via exposure to dust carrying infecting organism either in vegetative form or in form of spores. In fresh wound, bacteria have little time to multiply and there is practically no evidence of inflammatory tissue response, hence with few exceptions, bacteria are regarded as contaminants. But after a few hours, however, if sign of inflammation or other tissue response appear, then the bacteria must no longer be considered as contaminant but as infecting bacteria (Topley and Wilson, 1988).The commonest pyogenic bacteria often associated with infected wounds are Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Pneumococcus sp and coliform bacilli, such as Escherichia coli, Proteus sp, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other enteric bacilli. Aerobic organisms particularly Clostridium perfringes and other species of bacteriodes and aerobic cocci may also present (Klein et al.
This means to say that everyone should have access to good standard health. However this is not the case in public health systems. Their constraints limit the capacity to provide universal health. For instance with HIV, which is the biggest epidemic in South Africa, access to antiretroviral treatment for people who are marginalized, poor and living with HIV becomes difficult. Moreover if these individuals get access to the treatment, because they are poor, they might not have access to a balanced diet which needs to be taken with the pills and this ultimately worsens their health (Sen & Östlin, 2008).
At the beginning of this time period medicine was infrequent. There were only problems no solution; Infectious diseases such as The Great Plague were spreading but there we no medication for it. To cure the horrible epidemics they tried herbal remedies made out of plant and animals which had little effect on the patients due to lack medical knowledge. People again started to believe at the theory of four humors (Aristotle) and treatments by opposite humors (Galen) They used alcohol as a pain killers but it was hardly used due to the
Modern medicine provides people with the ability to protect themselves from the world’s most fatal diseases. Merely a century ago, it was not uncommon for a child to die as a result of diseases such as, polio, pertussis, and tuberculosis. Today it is highly unlikely for a person to contract these diseases, let alone die from them. However, refusal of vaccinations has been increasing throughout the years. This is due to individual’s unfounded fears and imagines consequences associated with the idea of purposely inserting a disease into one’s body.
Since then cases have been reported in 5 additional West African countries mainly affecting Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Senegal. It was an unprecedented outbreak in its scale, severity, and complexity. Extreme poverty, weak health systems and social customs were primarily hindering the control of the virus as these factors made breaking human-to-human transmission difficult. So, it was a big challenge for both WHO and United Nations to resolve this issue. The World Health Organization in coordination with United Nations made strategies to stop all chains of transmission in the affected countries, prevent the spread of the disease to neighboring countries and to safely re-activate life-saving essential health services.
In conclusion, it is always better to seek medical treatment early. This is because by delaying it, it can further cause complications which may lead to death. For example, even a fever we should not take it lightly because when we delay it by not going to see the doctor it may cause someone to have brain damage if complications arise. Furthermore, for patients whom are diagnose with cancer should seek treatment early when its at the early stage. Delaying it may cause the cancer to reach the last stage which is where nothing can be done to cure it because the cancer has spread all over the body which will cause someone’s death.
