When humans get rabies, their symptoms start out with simple headaches and fevers and later progresses to terrible things such as becoming hydrophobic because of painful throat spasms and paralysis. A definite diagnosis of rabies needs lab analysis of saliva and brain tissue to detect the virus. However, rabies cannot be diagnosed during the incubation period. This means that the definitive diagnosis is only possible late in the disease or after the victim’s death Symptoms Rabies is a viral disease that can be contracted through punctured skin by an infected entity. Not only can animals be infected by it, but humans can too.
The Rabies virus affects the central nervous system, and it is found in saliva, brain tissue, cerebrospinal fluid of infected animals and people. The disease is transmitted through saliva when an infected animal bites, scratches, or licks broken skin. As a Rabies infection progresses infected animals Almost everybody knows what Rabies is but do they know that 55,000. The topic of this paper is Rabies and how it affects the body. You will learn about Causes of Rabies, Having
Then the virus incubates in the infected creature’s body for approximately 3-12 weeks. The victim shows no signs of illness during this “incubation period”. When the virus reaches the brain, it multiplies rapidly, passes to the salivary glands, and the infected creature begins to show signs of disease. The infected creature usually dies within 1 week of becoming sick. Within four or five days, the victim my then either slip into a months long coma ending in death or die suddenly of cardiac arrest.
What is Rabies ? Rabies is an acute viral disease that can be transmitted from wild animals to unvaccinated pets and livestock, as well as to humans. It is caused by the rabies virus, which is present in the saliva of infected animals, and is transmitted through infected through the bite of a rabid animal. Once infection occurs, the virus spreads to the central nervous system and causes inflammation in the brain . Rabies is almost always fatal.
22-23). This small particle can be very deadly but death can be prevented if the action of going to a doctor is taken early. Rabies is a very serious virus. The case study of the only girl that survived rabies, the symptoms of rabies, and vaccines for rabies will be discussed later on. Rabies attacks the nervous system and can cause severe damage to the body.
The herpes viruses can do this over and over again. They hide in nerve tissue until prompted to erupt leaving painful ulcers as host tissue is destroyed. Human papilloma virus—HPV--causes genital warts and predisposes its victims to cervical cancer. Likewise, hepatitis viruses, especially hepatitis C can leave a patient vulnerable to liver cancer. Other cancers in humans are also known to be caused by viruses.
What is rabies? Rabies is a fatal virus that transmits from animals to humans. It initiates the center of the nervous system. It is called the encephalitis, which swells up the brain. Rabies occurs mostly from animal bites.
The bite of the infected animal easily introduces the virus into a fresh wound. In humans, rabies is not usually spread from man to man, rather the majority of infections occur from rabid dogs. After a person has been inoculated, the virus enters small nerve ends around the site of the bite, and slowly travels up the nerve to reach the central nervous system (CNS) where it reproduces itself, and will then travel down nerves to the salivary glands and replicate further. The time it takes to do this depends on the length of the nerve it must travel - a bite on the foot will have a much lengthier incubation period than a facial bite would. This period may last from two weeks to six months, and often the original wound will have healed and been forgotten by the time symptoms begin to occur.
Anthrax is a very real and dangerous threat to all people who come in contact with it. The bacterial infection is caused by the bacteriaium Bacillus anthracis. Anthrax is divided into three categories all are contracted in different ways. The first type is called Cutaneous Anthrax; this is where anthrax spores make contact with the skin. If there is a cut or a lesion then a person can be infected.
M5 Smallpox Smallpox is a deadly disease spread by a virus called varilola, this disease was once one of the world’s most dangerous and feared disease, before its eradication in1980.Smallpox was a dangerous disease globally, due to how contagious the disease was and the rate of how the disease spread on a global basic. The smallpox virus spreads from person to person via saliva droplets, through face to face close contact, coughing; sneezing and talking, where an uninfected person comes into contact with the saliva droplets that contains the smallpox virus and therefore contract the virus.

The program also provides countries that have no malaria death rate with action plans and strategies to ensure the rate remains. The program provides a range of different products that help to control malaria which includes; • Indoor residual sparing • Insecticide nets • Prevention treatments for pregnant women The malaria control program allows for the monitoring of the control measures and plans put in place by a country to ensure that the implication are being effective.
