One of the most common complications of the flu is a bacterial infection. Sporadically, this can become serious and progress into pneumonia. A bacterial infection can be treated by a round of antibiotics but can occasionally become life-threatening, particularly in the frail and elderly. However, because some bacterial infections can produce signs and symptoms similar to influenza, bacterial infections should be considered and appropriately treated, if suspected. In addition, bacterial co-infection can occur as a complication of influenza.
The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses. This book is very important because it teaches the reader things they didn’t know well or proves to them that they are wrong if they believed that the Holocaust was not harmful. No one had the right to treat these people in that way and no one has the right to ban this book because this will be censorship. Night also shows the truth about the Holocaust and teaches us that this period in history should be prevented from happening
Because of this, those who read the article then relate their feelings towards the Grim Reaper and death, a known and understood feeling, towards Ebola, without having dealt with the disease at all. For many, reading these metaphors in news media outlets are the first and often only places they obtain information about the disease. if this is their first interaction with any description of Ebola, readers will automatically become scared and panicked without being educated. The metaphor implies that that anyone that Ebola is everywhere, leaving a trail of destruction and death, when in reality, there were only about 2 deaths total in the United States due to Ebola (Center for Disease Control, 2016). This type of fear-mongering language has many consequences.
The Black Death was one of the most devastating epidemics to hit Europe, and affected the dynamics of society in many ways. The best way to understand how the Black Death really affected society is to look at the writings and art from that time period. The writings from Jean de Venette express’s how many people felt about the plague during that time and makes it easier
The reason I chose to investigate this topic is because; I am planning to pursue a career in medicine and the statistics and working of the spread of an epidemic greatly interests me. Studying how researchers and epidemiologists come to a conclusion whether or not a disease will turn into an impending epidemic would help in my later years studying in the field of medicine. Exploration Mathematical Modeling of Ebola Brief History The Ebola virus was first discovered in the year 1976, and the most recent outbreak in West Africa (March 2014) is considered the largest and most complex outbreak since. The numbers of deaths in the 2014 outbreak are far greater than all the previous outbreaks combined. It has spread to countries starting in Guinea to various other land borders; Sierra Leone and Liberia, These being the most severely affected due to weak health systems and lack of human and infrastructural
Although it was a bloody war, disease was the number one cause of death due to all the unsanitary equipment being used. Not only did the cleanness of things factor in the deaths caused by disease, but so did the knowledge of the people back then. They were not familiar with bacterial transmission, so not much was done to keep things sanitary. Luckily, today we have way better technology, knowledge and medical equipment. If it wasn’t for the Civil War and all the people who put their lives on the line, the world wouldn’t be how it is
However, it is questionable how accurate his representation of the Holocaust is since he did not actually live in the concentration camps. Furthermore, it must have been difficult to write about Anja’s life considering that all the details of her life are from memories since Vladek destroyed all of her writing and journals to cope with her committing suicide. Unlike my assumption that a graphic novel would belittle the severity of the Holocaust, this novel is very successful in narrating the events
The critics of the growing body of studies that pointed the finger at smoking cited the amount of subjects and methodology of those studies as common ways to undermine the reality they pointed to. They did not “constitute ‘proof’ in its scientific, medical, and social definition” nor did they effect consumption according to Peiss (129). It was not until statisticians such as E. Cuyler Hammond and Daniel Horn designed studies addressing issues with a scope of “the largest study population anyone had yet assembled” (145). Only then did some critics change their minds. With this turning point, anti-tobacco research gained steam and by the mid-1950s leading figures in medical science “now argued that the evidence was clear, convincing, and scientifically persuasive” (156).
He felt this is what his country had become as a result of prohibition and had no other option than to write about it. F. Scott Fitzgerald like many writers, felt America was getting too rambunctious, F. Scott Fitzgerald and other famous writers left the country for a while to get away and write about what they had saw and experienced. Prohibition is what made this book even possible to be written. In the Great Gatsby we are taken on a
The Holocaust, a moment in the history of fear, survival, hiding, and death. A time of one of the most feared actions taking place globally, World War II. Many people believe that the Holocaust did not exist, but it was very, very, real indeed. The Holocaust is the most unforgettable event that all survivors could not remove from their mind, it was used as an extermination process for Jews(Allen 6). Many say that there was an alternate path that could have been taken to avoid the war, and they are correct, there were multiple ways to avoid both World War ll and the Holocaust, but humanity and society were blinded by fear and bloodthirst, they really are not to blame, it was the most brutal events in human history(Vail 9).
The most interesting part was how the people hadn’t any idea what was the best for them, or even the Doctor’s hadn’t looked at each other 's research as thoroughly or respectfully enough to come to a legitimate conclusion about the disease. The overall descriptions provided by the author was enough to explain to the reader what had been the situation in Philadelphia 1793. Jim Murphy had spread his efforts in all of the sections in the book equally, and to the reader it would make it less complicated to understand the concepts. “An American Plague” provides a strong educational opportunity to the reader, and the path Jim Murphy had taken in writing in a memorable way gives plenty of information about the summer of 1793 in Philadelphia. The audience of this book should be for young adults, and “An American Plague” is suitable with the vocabulary, description and maturity to be exposed with certain
Wilcox gives us very detailed information, however, he never admits if Patton was murdered nor did he deny it. The proof is indirect. Target Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton is a very suspenseful book, it leaves you at the edge of your seat waiting for more. It is very different from most books that are written about history and is definitely worth the read. Anyone that is learning about History should read this
England currently provides health care to all its citizens free of cost. This system began in 1948 and the man who created and designed this free healthcare system became a hero in England. (Sicko) However, if the government made an effort to dismantle the system, the people would revolt. England could easily become bankrupt from the overpowering expense and would no solution to solve the problem without upsetting the public. This situation is extremely dangerous for a country and is not worth the risk.
