Yellow Fever was like a massive fire burning through Philadelphia killing thousands and thousands of people! It was also like a lightning bolt which struck the earth as hard as a runaway train. If you did not know, Yellow Fever is a horrific disease which comes from certain diseased, or infected mosquitoes. The Philadelphian and French doctors had to come up with a solution, or clarification. They both came up with a cure that they thought would be able to help people with the illness. This certain event happened in the summer of 1793 in Philadelphia. The mosquitoes came from some ships that sailed over seas into Philadelphia ports . There was between 2000-5000 people dead.

Smallpox is an infectious virus that has influenced people for many centuries. Smallpox got its name from a latin word called ¨spotted¨ since you get those bumps that are red all over your body. You could easily prevent this disease.
The plague was caused by a bacterial infection carried by the fleas of rodents. When the fleas come into contact with humans the outcome can be devastating and horrifying. The Bubonic plague, also known as The Black Death, is one of the most well-known plagues in history. Between 1347 and 1353, Europe experienced a merciless outbreak of the plague and in just a few years, one third of the world’s population was struck down by the Black Death. Whether it is the many different symptoms, bizarre methods of treatment, or life after the plague, The Black Death, in all its morbid glory, is fascinating.
Typhus is a deadly disease. It is caused by infection, which comes from rickettsia bacteria. Fleas, lice, ticks, and mites transmit rickettsia bacteria when they bite you. There are 3 types of Typhus. The 3 types are endemic, epidemic, and scrub. Epidemic Typhus is caused by lice, ticks, and body louse. Endemic Typhus is caused by flea, rats, and cat flea. Scrub Typhus is caused by louse, mites, fleas, ticks, and lice. You can easily get scrub Typhus in lice-infected areas. Once the bacteria is in the bloodstream, they continue to reproduce and grow. Typhus can last for 10-12 days at a time. All of the symptoms can occur. Typhus leaves red dots on the human skin. It can become deadly if left untreated. Although the 2 major (most common) types
There 's at least one person we all know who maybe have a deadly disease and may not be receiving the treatment they desperately need. Michael Crichton a film producer, critic and author of “Patenting Life,” earned his degree from Harvard Medical School, and author John E. Calfee a resident scholar of American Enterprise Institution and economist author of “Decoding the Use of Gene Patents” both share their views on gene patents. Crichton and Calfee share similarities on the research itself, but do not share the same ideas on whether or not gene patents put a halt on research, and paying a royalty to study the gene.
American children are taught throughout their primary education. That the native American population was almost wiped completely out by a disease from early settlers and conquistador. However they are not told that the disease used by these early invaders was known as smallpox. An pox virus that had appeared from time to time in the old world and laid waste to population centers. But where did it come from, are there different forms of this mysterious pathogen, is their a treatment, and how has it affected our world.
population could be in danger. This is because portions of our population are unvaccinated which means they have the potential of contracting the diseases and spreading it. The large population could be a danger if this happens which would result in chaos throughout the world. Smallpox as a weapon could turn over any plan that is put in place even post vaccination and cause many deaths. It is the mode of transmission, low dose, and ability to cause a severe disease that makes it widely feared as a biological weapon (Weiss ea atl., 2004).
I think it was not a good idea. The population grow rapidly and bring troubles, such as Smallpox Epidemic. The disease spread quickly and it caused over half of the coastal First Nations population had died. It also caused debts and the economic declined. Then the gold was running out and the miners left. These debts were too much and caused the British Columbia to merge with
A plague is a contagious bacterial disease characterized by fever and delirium. The bubonic plague is an infectious disease that is caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis and it is transmitted to human from infected rats by the oriental rat flea. Some symptoms are buboes, which are painful enlarged lymph nodes, headache, fever, chills, and weakness. Bubonic plague also results in gangrene which is the death of tissue. (Medicine Net) The estimated origin of the bubonic plague is in or near China around 1347 to 1351 by oriental rat fleas. How it was transmitted was through several different routes including West Asia by Silk Road and Africa by Chinese travelers under explorer Zheng He. (Medical News) It was also said to reach Europe through

Corals play an important role in the marine environment, providing a habitat for many marine organisms and assisting in carbon and nitrogen fixing (Bauer). Corals also provide essential nutrients that many organisms need to grow. These very important functions make diseases that threaten them especially concerning. One disease that has become common in the Florida Keys and Carribean is white pox disease. White pox disease, also known as acroporid serratiosis, is characterized by irregularly shaped, distinct white patches lacking coral tissue (Sutherland et al. 2004). Though white pox disease only affects Acropora palmata or Elkhorn corals, a species of coral found in the Florida Keys and Carribean, the tissue-eradicating lesions spread throughout
Anthrax- a notifiable bacterial disease of sheep and cattle, typically affecting the skin and lungs. It can be transmitted to humans, causing severe skin ulceration or a form of pneumonia. The Bacteria is called Bacillus anthracis. Anthrax was recorded as the 5th plague in the Book of Genisis in 1491 B.C.. After the Egyptians discovered the disease by killing infected cattle, outbreaks were appearing in places where Romans, Hindus and Greeks lived. The 1st recorded cases of anthrax in the 1800’s were from European people working with dead animal bones and wool. The workers would contract it by the 2 types of disease, Inhalation Anthrax and Cutaneous Anthrax. Years later, Americans began to see infections in people who handled materials with
