The Heat Hi room 29, the book I will be writing about is called The Heat. In this realistic fiction book The Heat by Mike Lupica, Manny has a hard time controlling his temper. To, back up my opinion, I will state evidence from the story, why Manny has a hard time controlling his temper. Manny told Michael,"Please, pretty please, tell me that punk is going down" (69). The line means Manny wants something bad to happen to someone or he wants beat up someone.
The central idea of Richard Preston’s The Hot Zone is that the outbreaks of many deadly hot agents are due to the oversight of humans. Preston conveys his message through detailed descriptions of simple mistakes that characters make. One instance of human oversight that he wrote about was the usage of dirty needles in the hospitals of Sudan, leading to a massive outbreak of Ebola Sudan. The virus “hit the hospital like a bomb” and “transformed the hospital at Maridi into a morgue” all because “the medical staff had been giving patients injections with dirty needles” (74).

In response to the Ebola scare in 2014, many people evinced strong fear and xenophobia (Kim, 2016). Especially about the zombie-like symptoms of the virus. In addition how does the virus slowly kills the victim without even realizing that he’s suffering from Ebola virus by replicating and filling the body with crystallized viruses hence damaging the human cells just like a new living organism controls another’s body and killing it bit by bit. To exemplify my relatives used to live in kenya about 43 years ago they were surrounded by ill people that make them terrified and fearful of getting the highly contagious disease, therefore they left kenya and currently they live in the UAE. The most complicated part if you were surrounded by Ebola virus is to calm people down and instead of leaving the country finding beneficial solutions so that the virus won’t disperse from one country to another.

Most of the symptoms were similar, bleeding from the pores, and dying within a short period of time. The red death made it to if you came in contact with another sick person, then within the next few hours you got the symptoms you would die.

Ebola, despite being discovered in the 1970s, was still mysterious at the time of this big outbreak. The symptoms of Ebola includes internal and external bleeding, vomiting blood, Headache, difficulty breathing, and lack of appetite. Because we had no knowledge and preparation on Ebola, the virus was spread between others in a massive scale. At one point during the outbreak, a deadly strain of Ebola hit Zaire, erupting simultaneously in some 50 villages, killed nine out of ten people it infected. Zaire's president, Mobutu Sese Seko, called out his army to seal the Kinshasa hospital and the entire zone of infected villages, with orders to shoot anyone trying to come out.
The argument that all viruses are deadly is incorrect. In the Hot Zone, Preston explained how Ebola and Marburg caused an epidemic that killed over hundreds of people and animals. In the novel, Preston also mentions smallpox and malaria. Being diseases, there are cures for all of them which overtime will eventually prove to be not deadly. Although hundreds of lives were lost against the virus, there came a cure later on.
