On page 11 in the first paragraph it talks about Catherine LeMaigre and how she was becoming sick. “It was clear that thirty-three-year-old Catherine LeMaigre was dying, and dying horribly and painfully. Between agonized gasps and groans she muttered that her stomach felt as if it were burning up.Every ten minutes or so her moaning would stop abruptly and she would vomit black vile.” So Catherine was showing the signs of the Yellow Fever.
The novel, Fahrenheit 451, presents a future society where books are prohibited and the firemen burn any that are. The title is the temperature at which books burn. It was written by Ray Bradbury and first published in October 1953. In this novel, protagonist Montag changes his understanding in various aspects such as love or his human relationship throughout the book. However, among all of these, fire – the main theme of this novel – has the most significance as it also changes his understanding of knowledge from books. Bradbury portrays how Montag’s perception of fire and burning books with his personal development changes by the different choices he makes throughout the novel.
The red death in “The Masque of The Red Death” by Edgar Allen Poe was based most likely on the Black Death or the Bubonic Plague. The red death and the Black Death have similar symptoms but not exactly the same. Both viruses ended in death just as Ebola (usually) does. When comparing the “The Masque of The Red Death” and the Ebola article,, I don’t think that he was talking about Ebola. But, he could have heard something about a slave that had Ebola. And, the red death(basing it on the Black Death) and Ebola have different percentiles and time periods till termination. The patients were also treated differently, so I don’t really think Poe was writing Ebola. And, I don’t believe Poe was writing about Ebola because to me the chance he “guessed” that Ebola would come is extremely small.
Could Edgar Allan Poe, the author of “ The Masque of the Red Death” could have been talking about modern day Ebola? In Edgar 's story the outbreak had some similarities with modern day Ebola, but it was just a coincidence. There 's absolutely no way Edgar Allan Poe could 've known about Ebola before it actually happened. Although Edgar was the only author to use the sickness before it happened, it wouldn 't be that hard to come up with it. Having blood coming leaking out of you isn 't common, but it does make a good story and Edgar Allan Poe saw potential in his idea.
Do you think that Edgar Allan Poe was talking about Ebola in “The Masque of the Red Death?” Poe was not talking about Ebola. I am going to argue about the blood and symptoms, place and time, and the reaction to the diseases. First, is the Blood and symptoms. Secondly, is the place and time and lastly the reaction to the diseases. The symptoms of the red death are bleeding from the pores. Although, Ebola causes bleeding from the pores, it causes bleeding from certain places on the body like the ears, nose and mouth. The red death after you catch it you could die in a matter of thirty minutes. In Ebola’s case it could take up to three weeks to just show symptoms. Poe could be exaggerating the time period to show symptoms, but
Quiet and undetected like a ninja, a virus can quickly attack. Richard Preston describes the stealth behaviors of the different viral strains of Ebola and its development in the non-fiction novel, The Hot Zone. The Hot Zone explains the outbreak of the Ebola virus, demonstrating the danger of exposure to this virus. Several outbreaks and deaths are described in the novel, but through all Preston’s research and writing on the book, he has learned how to keep himself safe during his explorations. Viruses are spread from the lack of resources such as clean medical supplies, funding, and a general lack of medical treatment knowledge.
Edgar Allan Poe did not write about Ebola in his story "The Masque of the Red Death." He is not in the correct time period to know about the dreaded illness. There were no disease studies to be able to tell what the red death actually was. Finally, no one knew it was contracted, or where it was contracted from. Poe was not referencing Ebola. Here is why.

The Hot Zone is a nonfiction story written by the unique author Richard Preston who won several awards because of his outstanding style of writing. Briefly, this narrative describes how the Ebola Virus diffused from the rainforests of Africa reaching the suburbs of Washington, DC in 1998 using an attractive language that fosters imaging and imagining. To be more accurate, it highlights the issue of an epidemic lethal virus and its outbreak. In this report, I will write about two medical subjects that are mentioned in the book related to the microorganisms’ world: Viruses and Bacteria which share some similarities but vary from one another.
Chapter 1 Something in the Forest: In this chapter, a character named Charles Monet. a Frenchman living in Kenya, is introduced. Describing his daily life, the author points out some risky behaviors that may have led to Monet contracting the virus. Some of those behaviors include over-interaction with wild animals and sleeping with many women, as implied by the author. After contracting the virus, Monet goes through many symptoms such as headache and vomiting feverishly. After constant demise of Monet’s well-being, his colleagues get him to a hospital. However, the doctors recommend that he go to Nairobi Hospital. In the flight there, Monet becomes even more ill due to the addition of his airsickness. He is described as looking like a “zombie”
The author, Poe, wrote the "Red Death." However, the story is not about Ebola. If it was about Ebola it would not kill everyone. For instance he would not know that Ebola would become a Disease or reaction. But than again they both led to death they also have dizziness and pain.
In the film The Forgotten Plague by Chana Gazit, the story of a disease that usually resulted in death unfolds. Beginning in the early 19th century a disease named consumption swept the American nation, killing “one in seven of all the people who had ever lived”. This was devastating for the country and caused many people to travel towards the south and also to the west in hopes of a cure.
Viruses are all over the world and can travel around the world quicker than you or I can. Since viruses travel so quick it is difficult for humans to get ahead of an outbreak. The movie Contagion is a good example of how quick viruses can spread. In the movie a character named Beth is traveling home from China and soon after arriving home she dies due to unknown reason. When the CDC looks further into Beths death the notice that others from around the world have died in the same manner and had the same side effects as Beth. Once they noticed that their deaths are not a coincidence they start to worry and trace Beths steps to see if the victims crossed paths. . It turns out that the virus started in China from a butcher who did not wash his hands, instead he wiped his hands on apron, after slaughtering a pig. The pig got the virus from bat dropping and the bat got the virus from banana. To think that it all could have been prevented by good hygiene and proper hand washing. In the movie there are a number of characters who reacted differently. Three of the characters whom I thought handled the situation in positive or negative ways were Mitch Emhoff, Dr. Leonora Orantes, and Alan Krumweide. The movie shows how each character deals with stress of the virus in their life, in the field of surgical technologist there are many of the
The current hospital protocol for Ebola is to identify (screen and speak up); isolate (place or in private room on contact and droplet precautions); escalate (immediate coordination of care with infectious disease, department management, and administration); and protect (use proper PPE when caring for suspected or confirmed Ebola patients). It has been said that rules and policies arise from errors and mistakes. This may very well be true, for the educational push for the current practice of caring for an Ebola patient resulted from lack of training and education regarding the screening, procedures, and care for the Ebola patient in Dallas.
