On page 158, Preston writes, “Once the virus enters the cell, it becomes a Trojan horse”. Ebola is described as a very dangerous virus. The scientists try to find an end to this virus but know that it is unstoppable. Allusion is used when describing how Ebola invades the body. The Ebola virus enters the body and kills the host from the inside out.
The infected where placed in quarantines and isolated from the rest of the population. While the contagion theory, blamed the poor for the outbreak, justifying government officials to execute them. Clothing and “other personal items belonging to the victim were burned,” in order to kill the plague (217). Children where forced to leave their parents, who were victims of the plague, behind in order to survive. Many cities filled with the decaying corpses of the Black Death where locked away, and abandoned.
The Black Plague was a detrimental epidemic that affected every social class and still wreaks havoc to this day. The Black Death was a deadly disease that spread through Europe from 1346-1353 (Benedictow 1). This gruesome infection was caused by bacteria Yersinia pestis (Benedictow 1). Yersinia pestis is a bacteria transmitted to people bitten by fleas from infected rodents (“Plague” 1). It then takes over the whole human body (Aberth 19).
This chapter “The Ghost Soldiers”, showed us how Tim O’Brien and the other soldiers were dealing with the war both physically and psychologically. It also shows us how the Tim O'Brien behaved and felt when he was shot, wounded and had a bacteria infection on his butt and how the war changed the way he thought, and viewed the other soldiers around him. This chapter also contain a lot of psychological lens. From the way Tim O’Brien felt when he was shot and separated from his unit to a new unit to when he wanted revenge on Bobby Jorgenson for almost “killing” him. The chapter also showed how the war shaped and changed the way Tim O’Brien thought and dealt with things.
Survivalism: the Art of Self-Preservation Self-preservation is defined as the protection of oneself from harm or death, especially regarded as a base instinct in human beings and animals. It drives us to do things we otherwise would not do, to accomplish things we didn’t know were possible. Self-preservation can often be found throughout history and literature, always in the most desperate of times. Nowhere is it more prominent than in the history and literature surrounding the Holocaust, during which over six million Jews, including 1.5 million children, were brutally murdered in what has become known as one of history’s most deadly and widely publicized genocides. For almost 80 years, historians and Jewish survivors have authored and published their firsthand accounts of the pain they were forced to endure.
There have been many different "witch hunts" that have happened since 1692, that have shaped our world. One of the most known is The Holocaust that happened during WWII. This is important because a large mass of innocent people were killed due to their race. Some may say it was just a part of war; however, it's much more than that. It’s the fact that one person didn’t like a certain group of people besides their own so; they felt like they had the right to take away their lives.
These diseases often traveled ahead of the Spanish.” This tells us that disease was also very involved in the conquering of the Aztecs. In Millers book we are provided with a point of view from inside during the siege of Tenochtitlan. The passage suggests an excruciating and wide spread epidemic of small pox with many people dying from it while the Spaniards lay siege. The passage describes people covered in pustules laying down and being in excruciating pain. The image above shows a native infected with small pox and this illustrates exactly what was described in the passage.
In deeper analysis, Malaria, Yellow Fever, and Smallpox have occurred for over 4,000 years and is known for greatly impacting humans and their history during the Antebellum era. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highlighted in the beginning of the article, “Malaria became widely recognized in Greece by the 4th century BCE, and it was responsible for the decline of many of the city-state populations”. Since our medical resources weren’t available to individuals during the Antebellum era, they were able to infer when a person contracted malaria by analyzing their blood. They could also tell when individuals caught this said disease because they would show symptoms of fevers every third day, and the releasing of merozoites in our bloodstreams. Towards the end of the Yellow Fever epidemic, over 5000 individuals were dead.
“Prophet!”said I, “thing of evil!”------prophet still,if bird or Devil -----(page 191)Edgar Allen Poe wrote a lot of short stories and poems around the time of his wife's death of tuberculosis, so in his writing, there is a lot of deaths/murders.In the majority of Poe's short stories and poems the narrator(somebody) revenge(wanted) usually gets caught(but)and gets executed(so).

But, the most common and accurate one is that Edgar A. Poe died because of rabies. Rabies is known as a very deadly virus spread to people from the saliva of infected animals. The rabies virus is usually transmitted through a bite. In the late 1800 rabies was well known to cause different symptoms, including itching, fever, headache, excess salivation, muscle spasms, and mental confusion. These symptoms tend to spread through entire body.
There are two different forms of pneumonic pest. The primary pneumonic plague infects people by droplet infection from human to human being. The secondary pneumonic plague develops out of a bubonic plague. The pathogens enter the lungs via blood vessels and provoke the septicaemic plague. The plague killed so many people
Diseases in Victorian Britain and what the diseases were, how they were thought to be cured, how they actually were cured, and how it was like for people who had the disease is what I am talking about. The black plague was caused by fleas carried by rats that would go into the human skin that would cause humans skin to turn black and sometimes cause people to die. Bubonic plague (black plague) causes the skin and flesh to die and turn black. During the time of the black plague, also known as the black death or bubonic plague, it was one of the most devastating time ever and it caused millions to die.

The Holocaust is a destruction on a massive scale, it was significant part of today’s history because it teaches people how and where genocide can take place in. Although, the violence was targeted towards the Jewish people, non-Jewish people were also killed during this traumatizing event of world history. The memoir Night by Eliezer Wiesel tells the story about Elie’s Holocaust experiences. In his story, Elie experiences and encounters several relationships involving himself and other characters. The theme relationships are essential for physical and psychological survival are shown throughout the book when situations involving Mrs. Schächter, Stein, and Elie occur.
For instance an attacking army launched infected corpses via catapult over walls of the city they were trying to take siege on in hopes that the smell would make them flee. In reality all they did was kill off most of the city by infecting them all with the plague (Dobson 13). No one realized that before an outbreak of the plague, many rats died. The connection between rats and the plague was made only a century or so ago die to advances in science and technology (“Plague” 1). Sometimes the plague goes from being bubonic to pneumonic, meaning it was able to be spread from person to person in the air via droplets from their lungs (“Plague” 1).
