There have been many theories about the death of Edgar A. Poe. Many of these theories includes brain tumor, heart disease, flu, alcoholism, rabies, etc. The stories have been supported but, how accurate are they? Out of all the different theories, alcoholism and rabies are the most accurate ones. But, the most common and accurate one is that Edgar A. Poe died because of rabies.
In my opinion, I don’t think it’s accurate to say that disease is an “unseen enemy” throughout history. The diseases mentioned by John Aberth are smallpox and the bubonic, also known as the Black Death. They both show symptoms of it taking place inside the human body. So in a way, they are not an “unseen” enemy. For example, the bubonic plague is spread through the bite of a flea. if a person was struck with the bubonic plague, swelling of the lymph nodes or buboes would occur in the neck, armpits, or groin, depending on where the fleas infected the target. Accompanied symptoms would include internal bleeding, high fever, and headaches. This would ultimately end in death. The symptoms of smallpox are another example that disease is a visible
When an individual has this disease, symptoms such as pyrexia, migraine, queasiness, upchucking, chills, and having pain on one’s back would appear. Yellow fever has no cure and treatment incorporates merely of endeavors in order for the convalescent to be consoled and at ease. Patients would recuperate up to three to four days but, about fifteen percent would enter another stage of this sickness after a respite. This stage consists of a reappearance of high fever, abdominal pain, the skin will turn yellow and there is a possibility that the eyes can become yellow as well, bleeding from the eyes, nose, mouth, stomach, heaving, and degrading kidney function. Yellow fever is known to exterminate thirty thousand people yearly.
I believe that finger monkey’s should be illegal to have as pets in the United States. In California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Wyoming finger monkeys are illegal since 2012. First, I think the monkey’s should illegal to keep as any kind of private ownership because finger monkeys can be very aggressive and scary. They can do this because they have very sharp teeth that they could bite thing or people. These monkeys could seriously damage your house. Next, they could also scare their caretakers because the monkeys want to be in the wild, not held up inside of a house for their whole
One of the most scariest diseases, if not the scariest disease, was smallpox. Smallpox was a game change in the 1500’s. The smallpox most definitely had one of the biggest impacts on the world. People often say that had it still been occurring it would have wiped out mankind and possibly all mammals, reptiles, amphibians and possibly most birds, and bugs. The cause of the civil war was because of an epidemic of smallpox. That was classified as the first recorded smallpox epidemic in the New World. This epidemic took place in 1518, it spread to Mexico and South
“In the morning when a large number of bodies were found in the pit, they took
TENS is the most serious of these diseases. In many cases, the papules and lesions appear to mimic SJS. Within a few days, there is large, widespread denuded areas. Lateral pressure may cause the surrounding skin to separate easily from the dermis. This is called the Nikolsky sign. (Porth’s, 2014).
The bacterium uses the blood as transportation machine that helps it to spread all over the body. Treponema pallidum progresses through four stages, and each stage has different symptoms. The first stage or the primary stage is the stage at which sores appear in the position where the bacterium entered the body. After the entrance of the bacterium to the body, it goes to the nearby lymph node within hours then it continues to spread in the body. The appearance of that sores usually happens in 2 to 10 weeks following exposure, and chancres, another name for the sores, are red, oval, and painless. Therefore, most of the infected people are not aware of having that disease in its primary stage. The sores may develop into ulcers that secret uncolored, very infectious fluid. The lesions most of the time are healed without treatment in about six, or it will develop into the secondary
He highlights the outbreaks of Ebola Sudan and Ebola Zaire, which simultaneously appeared in dozens of villages as a result of the use of dirty needles and poor living conditions within those villages. Amid the horrific outbreaks and victims of the filoviruses, Preston also focuses on several American scientists and military personnel who spend their lives within “space suits” researching hot agents. Despite the dangers surrounding them at every corner when working with lethal viruses, each of these scientists strive to learn as much as possible, in the hopes of one day finding a vaccine that will save the human race. As the book continues, we see that a monkey facility in Reston, Virginia is marked as a “hot zone” with a new, unknown strain of Ebola wandering in and out of the monkey facility infecting and ultimately killing many who inhabit it. While the SWAT team is tasked with entering the building and euthanizing hundreds of monkeys in the facility, they must also keep in mind that if the news of a lethal virus got out to the public it would ultimately would cause even more chaos. At the end of the book, we finally find out that all of the employees who had worked at the monkey house had tested positive for Ebola though they were never affected by
The disease in question was Smallpox. Smallpox is a fatal, infectious disease in which the infected become covered in fluid-filled bumps. The disease goes through 7 distinct stages in which the
Clostridium difficile (C. difficile or C. diff) infection is a condition that causes inflammation of the large intestine (colon). This condition can result in damage to the lining of your colon and may lead to colitis. This condition can be passed from person to person (contagious).
2. Describe the disease from question 1. Psoriasis- “is a skin disorder. It 's characterized by skin cells that multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. As underlying cells reach the skin 's surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales. Typically occurs on the knees , elbows, and scalp, and it can also affect the torso, palms, and soles of the feet.” http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/psoriasis/understanding-psoriasis-basics#1
Here, the virus was called Ebola Zaire and the virus spread faster here because the doctors were not using clean needles when treating patients. Once the world noticed what was happening, doctors from all over the world travelled there to try to find a cure. Later on, with the help of the samples of dead boy, Doctor Johnson figured out it was the Marburg Virus. Johnson then discovered that the boy and Monet had both explored the same caves. So, it was determined that the original virus came from the caves, but they could not find the exact source within the caves. The monkeys came in contact with the virus and then transmitted it to
Once the virus infected the first being was when it became out of control. Dealing with the monkey house was relatively easy compared to dealing with it when humans were infected. At the monkey house they knocked the monkeys out with an anesthetic, took samples of blood among other things, then euthanized them with T-91. With humans, they couldn’t do much more
Human monkeypox is a viral zoonotic disease caused by the monkeypox virus (MPXV), a member of the genus Orthopoxvirus (family Poxviridae, subfamily Chordopoxvirinae), that occurs mostly in the rain forests of central and western Africa. People living in or near the forested areas may have indirect or low-level exposure, possibly leading to subclinical infection. However, the disease recently emerged in the United States in imported wild rodents from Africa. Monkeypox has a clinical presentation very similar to that of ordinary forms of smallpox, including flulike symptoms, fever, malaise, back pain, headache, and characteristic rash. Given this clinical spectrum, differential diagnosis to rule out smallpox is very important. Primary transmission believed to occur through direct contact with
