Tuberculosis in the Victorian Era Tuberculosis has been one of the most fatal diseases since the beginning of history. However, it was especially dangerous during the Victorian Era. All Victorians experienced the distress of tuberculosis in some way, making it a tremendous problem for society at the time. The eternal search for an effective, absolute cure of this dreaded disease has lasted for centuries, from the Ancient Egyptians on the Nile, to modern times. Nevertheless, several crucial leaps were made in the medical field during the Victorian Era that helped to curb the toll of tuberculosis on society.
Dimmesdale's sickness symbolizes guilt because it caused by him feeling guilty. He was feeling guilty for what he did with Hester. The Massachusetts bay colony and the city of Boston symbolizes guilt and sin because these events happen here. The city of boston symbolizes sin because the town is still known for Hester's sin and the townspeople can not forget. I also think the town feels guilty for letting such a thing happen.
The most devastating example of this was the way that Cholera was brought back to Britain from the Indian sub-continent with devastating results. The imperialists also had a habit of moving slaves and laborers around the world to tend the new plantations and factories. This would increase the danger of introducing disease to populations that had no natural resistance against
The doctor advised Brian that the tissue being used was disease free but was the tissue of donor 58600 who after death Clostridium sordelli bacteria took over his body. Brian Lykins died soon after the surgery. Brian was not the only person who received tissue from donor 58600; others also got sick or died. Some concerns related are that there is no way to regulate human remains without someone trying to make a profit. It started off as a way to advance science and help society but the greed of money took over.
This environment was the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, while the close proximity of people allowed for the spread of diseases to occur more rapidly. In addition, many of the diseases spread due to improper sterilization of medical instruments. “Before the late nineteenth
This mass hysteria has happened in other cases in history. For example in 1899 in America everyone was scared of the “kissing bug.” Someone made up a story of someone with a bite on the lips was bite by a bug, and this bug was going to start a new plague. After that anyone with a wound on their face panicked thinking they had the disease. Some people called of work for this “kissing bug” sickness, saying they needed financial aid. One woman even said she felt like it was a vampire bite instead of a bug.
The eradication of smallpox in the year 1979, is perhaps one of the greatest highlights in vaccinology. Also, outbreaks of numerous contagious diseases like measles, chicken pox, tuberculosis, yellow fever, rubella, only to mention a few, have been greatly contained by vaccines ain a way that no other physical or chemical component has accomplished. This is because, physical barriers often fail, due to the continuous movement or air, which contributes to the transmission of many diseases. Physical barriers are also futile because global travel is easier in this
The disease is very contagious. This fever can be transmitted by humans from the mouth and nose. Also, this can be spread easily by an infected individual coughing or sneezing in your presence In Frankenstein, Caroline Beaufort catches scarlet fever from Elizabeth. Caroline beaufort’s husband, Alphonse Frankenstein, suffers from the disease which he had carried from other events that took place in his life. Caroline becomes ill with the disease because she cares for Elizabeth and later becomes a victim of airborne respiratory.
The counterclaim will talk about how Fredrick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs narrative talk about how how women had it worse than men did. The reason why women had it worse was because of the sexual abuse. Men was physically and emotionally abused like women but the fact that women were also sexually abused made it worse than men. In Harriet's narrative she talks about how beauty was a curse "If God has bestowed beauty upon her, it will prove her greatest curse." In Fredrick's narrative he talks about how he got abused for anything "My awkwardness was almost always his excuse for whipping
Vaccines are good for society because they save lives, they save people time and money, and they are safe. The main reason that people get vaccinated is to save their life. Vaccines make whoever took it used to the disease, so that when it spreads, they won’t get affected. “Some diseases that once injured or killed thousands of children, have been eliminated completely and others are close to extinction– primarily due to safe and effective
These programs can also benefit individual patients by improving clinical outcomes (Bebell and Muiruz 2014). Currently, patients infected by superbugs are treated either by radical surgery which may lead to amputation, or intense use of strong antibiotics which can cause many unwanted side effects (e.g. liver damage, diarrhoea, allergic reaction). Also pharmaceutical companies are not likely to invest in new drugs for superbugs as this has little financial profit for the companies making the creation of newly developed antibiotics with fewer side effects almost impossible (Pogson 2012). However, if the spread of superbugs is controlled by the AMS programs, no new drugs are needed and less aggressive treatments can be used for such bacterial infections.
Also, he ensured from his experiments that the inoculation process had less fatal structure of the disease in the human body. The author illustrated that several obstacles were overtaken to prevent the outbreak from spreading, a contamination which infected numerous people in 1721, and there were many controversies about the inoculation process and experimentation to inoculate the disease into a healthy person. The inoculation process was harmless and had satisfied the safety of the patients with the experiment. This inoculation method showed a huge result of survival rate in the New England colonies. The death rate was reduced by a greater number and the survival rate increased vastly because of Boylston’s inoculation for smallpox disease.
