This is a very important aspect of the Black Death, for, of course, you can’t know to find cures for the Black Plague if you don’t know that that is indeed what you have. In my great great grandfather’s journal, he explains how he helped the sick people, and therefore was able to determine the symptoms of the plague. There are three types of the Black Plague according to his diary. The most common plague is that of the buboes, commonly called the Bubonic Plague. With this version, you die in five days, and you develop flu-like symptoms (like fever, headache, chills, and weakness).
The government agencies response to the outbreak of influenza proved to be useless, with ignorance, failure to act, and disregard to those in need, as displayed in documents one, three, and six. Document one was written by a anonymous medical doctor in the United States, 1918. As stated in a letter written to a friend, hoping to inform them about the serious outbreak of influenza, the change influenza had caused increased medical need, as well as doubled the amount of paperwork. He continues in a meloncholy, rushed, tone, that “For several days there were no coffins and the bodies piled up something fierce” (line 8). Therefore, the governents response to the outbreak proved to be for merely business issues, as the paperwork was treated better
Since ancient times, Smallpox has devastated the world, killing millions of people. Often referred to as the speckled monster, the smallpox disease originated in the new world when Spanish and Portuguese conquistadors and early English settlers arrived in the Americas. Although there had been attempts to cure the disease, including variation, (that came from Asia 2,000 years ago), they all had a high risk of death. It wasn’t until 1796, when Edward Jenner, a English paleontologist came up with a new form of vaccine, it was called inoculation. The disease decimated the local population and was one of the main reasons for the fall of the Aztec and Inca empires.
Never before had they experienced summers so warm and winters so cold, especially as they arrived to America during “the little ice age”. Disease affected both natives and colonists. Smallpox devastated the Indians, “their flesh became so consumed with sores that their flesh adhered to the mats on which they slept,” (pg 172). Influenza also killed hundreds upon thousands of Indians and Colonists. Settlement & Migration The colonists may have been wary of traveling to far into Indian territory when the first arrived to America, but they soon spread along the coast.
The flu vaccine has claimed many lives over the past year.The CDC states that”There is a risk that respiratory illness in young kids and old people when they got a flu shot”.People that get the respiratory illness have a bad chance that they won’t survive killing thousands each year.In addition, the article “Why are so many healthy people are dying of the flu vaccine” Dr.Mark Geier(Genetisit and a professor at John Hopkins University) explains how this flu vaccine is more like an expirement than curing people .Therefore it proves that flu vaccines kill lots of people each year. The flu vaccine is a very controversial topic here in the United States. Flu vaccines kill and gives us extra diseases.Although getting a flu shot will protect you it is not very effective and it cause more disease that you don 't want to have in your body.If we do not stop using flu vaccines we might have more cases of GBS and loads of other diseases caused by the flu shot.When people realize all the bad stuff happening people we will take action against the flu
If polio paralyzes the chest muscles of the victim, it can be fatal by not allowing the person to breathe. At this time there was no reliable cure for polio, but most people did recover with at least a partial return of their mobility. Beginning in 1916, large outbreaks of polio swept through cities and towns, crippling and killing thousands. Most years saw “summer outbreaks” that would seem to stop with the cold weather. When polio hit this small, western North Carolina town
He had been recovering pretty well but he fell ill again and never recovered. Death has been commonplace here in Germany the last few years with ex troops dying from battle wounds and people succumbing to the effects of poverty. Even years after the end of the war, death is still a prominent factor of everyday life. With the war and its consequences came hardships for many countries but because Germany was the antagonist of the war we got the brunt of the reparations for the war. The entire country has been made to suffer for Germany.
Black death VS Swine flu (H1N1) Black death and Swine flu were similar.The Black Death was one of the most devastating pandemics (disease) in human history, resulting in the deaths of one 3rd population of Europe in the years 1346–53. Both of diseases are spread by animals. Both diseases kills a huge amount of people and Both diseases change the society by killing their people. The Black Death is originated in Central Asia, where it then travelled along the Silk road. It was most likely carried by Oriental the black rats.Black Death, now known as the plague, is spread by a bacillus (bacteria) called (Yersinia pestis).A French biologist Alexandre Yersin discovered this Bacterial cell in 19th century.From the research of Alexandre Emile Jean
Spanish Flu Jaden Morrow I am going to be talking about the Spanish Flu in 1918. One of the questions I was asked to answer was how did the Spanish Flu enter the United States. The Spanish Flu originally came from Spanish and when they traveled over to America it spread to the Native Americans. Once it reached them everyone started getting it and a bunch of people died and they didn’t really know why. That is what I know about the Spanish Flu.
The Black Plague, also known as the Black Death, was a massive problem causing many deaths in the fourteenth century. Believe it or not, there were about twenty million deaths in just two years. The plague started in Central Asia, where there were tensions between Christian merchants from Italy and the local Muslim residents, causing war. Unbelievably, the Muslims took advantage of this situation, as if there could be a positive thing about this, and threw the infected dead bodies of soldiers over the walls into Catha. These rotten courses traveled through the air, leading to the water being poisoned.
