PLAGUES OF PAST

#biology #microbiology #microdaily2000#microdaily#bacteria#biotechnology #science

Hello guys, I’m happy to meet you via my blog . So how’s quarantine going ?????

Hope you’re all enjoying ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…lol just kidding๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ . Introverts may enjoy it but not all can have fun during quarantine. Most of us are bored as hell ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ.

So today we’re gonna learn about some of the outbreaks from past . I have planned to write this blog as a duology which means this blog will have a sequel ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

PLAGUE OF ATHENS:

* The plague of athens was an epidemic that ruined the city of Athens in ancient Greece during the pelponessian war (430BC) and this plague occurred during the second year of the war .

The plague killed an estimated 75,000 to 100,000 people and is believed to have entered Athens through Piraeus, the city’s port and sole source of food and supplies.Much of the eastern Mediterranean also saw an outbreak of the disease, albeit with less impact

The plague had serious effects on Athens’ society, resulting in a lack of adherence to laws and religious belief; in response laws became stricter, resulting in the punishment of non-citizens claiming to be Athenian. In addition, Pericles, the leader of Athens, died from the plague.The plague returned twice more, in 429 BC and in the winter of 427/426 BC. Some 30 pathogens have been suggested as having caused the plague.

DEATH TOLL:75,000 -100 ,000

LOCATION: GREECE ,EGYPT ,LIBYA,ETHIOPIA

ANTONINE PLAGUE:

Antonine plague is also known as the plague of Galen. It was an ancient pandemic brought to the Roman Empire by troops who were returning from campaigns in the Near East. Scholars have suspected it to have been either smallpoxor measles.The plague may have claimed the life of a Roman emperor, Lucius Verus, who died in 169 and was the co-regent of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, whose family name, Antoninus, has become associated with the pandemic.

According to the contemporary Roman historian Cassius Dio, the disease broke out again nine years later in 189 AD and caused up to 2,000 deaths a day in Rome, one quarter of those who were affected.The total death count has been estimated at 5 million,and the disease killed as much as one third of the population in some areas and devastated the Roman army.

DEATH TOLL :5 to 10 million

LOCATION: Roman empire

PLAGUE OF CYPRIAN:

* The plague of cyprian was a pandemic that devastated the Roman empire about from AD 249 to 262.

It is named after St. Cyprian, bishop of Carthage, an early Christian writer who witnessed and described the plague.

Historians and researchers are not are not sure about the agent of plague but suspects have included smallpox, pandemic influenza and viral hemorrhagic fever (filoviruses) like the Ebola virus.

DEATH TOLL: 1 million plus

LOCATION: Europe

PLAGUE OF JUSTINIAN:

The Plague of Justinian is the first and the best known outbreak of the first plague pandemic, which continued to recur until the middle of the 8th century.

The disease afflicted the entire Mediterranean Basin, Europe, and the Near East, severely affecting the Sasanian Empire and the Roman Empire and especially its capital, Constantinople.

The plague is named after the Roman emperor in constantinople Justinian I (r. 527โ€“565), who was affected and later recovered from the disease according to his court historian procopius .

The contagion arrived in Roman Egypt in 541 and spread around the Mediterranean Sea until 544; in Northern Europe and the Arabian Peninsula it persisted until 549.

The bacterium yersinia pestis was responsible for the pandemic

DEATH TOLL: 25 to 100 million (40 – 50 percentage of population of Europe)

LOCATION: Europe and west asia

THE BLACK PLAGUE:

The Black Death, also known as the Pestilence and the Great Mortality, was the most fatal pandemic recorded in human history, resulting in the deaths of up to 75โ€“200 million people in Eurasia and North Africa,peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351.

Plague, the disease caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, was the cause; Y. pestis infection most commonly results in bubonic plague, but can cause septicaemic or pneumonic plague.

DEATH TOLL: 75 – 200 million

LOCATION: Europe ,asia and north Africa

A plague doctor was a physician who treated victims of the bubonic plague. In times of epidemics, these physicians were specifically hired by towns where the plague had taken hold. Since the city was paying their salary, they treated everyone both the wealthy and the poor .

Mankind has faced lot of pandemics like these over the years. I would rate these as the deadliest outbreaks of all time .

Hope you guys like it , since this is a duology , I’ll write about the other outbreaks in my next blog which will be the sequel to this and I’ll publish it as soon as possible.

MICRO ORGANISMS – rise of a lethal weapon

Hello guys, I’m meeting you all after a long time . It’s been 9 months since I’ve written a blog . I’m glad to meet you all through this blog guys .

We’re going through difficult times people and yes we’re facing a pandemic just like we’ve seen in movies like contagion

Contagion is an scifi film starring matt damon and was theatrically released on September 9 ,2011.

This film has renewed popularity during this covid19 pandemic

BUT WHY?????

Because it is similar to what we’re facing right now ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

We have faced outbreaks worst than this in the past and if we go through the pages of history ,the first outbreak was recorded in 165 AD .

It is known as the ANTONINE PLAGUE which was an ancient pandemic that affected Egypt, Greece, Italy and minor parts of Asia. The death toll was estimated to be about 5 million

Antonine plague(165-180AD)

PLAGUE OF JUSTINIAN(541 -542)

It was caused by bubonic plague which is thought to have killed perhaps half of the population of Europe . It is generally regarded as the first recorded incident of bubonic plague . The death toll was about 25 million people

And some major outbreaks are

THE BLACK DEATH(1346-1353)

ASIATIC FLU OR RUSSIAN FLU (1889-1890)

1918 PANDEMIC (SPANISH FLU)

and many more .

But almost all of them were natural disasters .

But………………..

WHAT IF ????

What if man is able to design a virus that’ll have the ability to decimate half of the population

Yeah I’m talking about coronavirus

There are many conspiracy theories in the internet.

When the outbreak begin several people started pointing out that a passage from the 1981 book โ€˜The Eyes of Darknessโ€™ by Dean Koontz eerily predicts the Coronavirus outbreak.

And you’ll be shocked too if you go through the detail give in the novel

In a passage of the novel , a character named Dombey narrates an account of a virus called โ€˜Wuhan-400โ€™ which was developed at the RDNA lab outside the city of Wuhan, and โ€˜ it was the four-hundredth viable strain of man-made microorganisms created at that research centreโ€™.

Shocking isn’t it ??

That’s not the only theory surfacing the internet .

Ever since this outbreak begin , there were claims that the chinese government was trying to cover up the outbreak and the official figures

The fact that the Chinese Government tried to suppress the attempts of the whistleblowers (the insiders as well as eight doctors), who tried to warn the public of the pandemic, is rather alarming and didnโ€™t help their cause.

Even the president of the United states of America mr.donald trump claimed that it(coronavirus)was made in a laboratory.

The Chinese government has declined the claims regarding coronavirus made by the US GOVERNMENT

CASES OF INFECTION:

COVID-19 has now infected 3,753,219 people worldwide and 263,843 people have been killed due to this pandemic. Around 1,245,560 people of that tally have recovered.

There are also other claims stating that coronavirus is not a bioweapon.

But the truth is that the officials have failed in keeping it (covid19)at bay.

Now let’s keep this theories aside .

So what if researchers are able to create a biological weapon that can wipe out populations of a entire country.

Scary isn’t it ???

This type of warfare is called biowar

BUT WHO STARTED IT????

the late 19th century, it was finally possible to isolate, produce and weaponized biological agents.

Germany may be credited with opening of the modern biological warfare program during World War I. Covert operations in Romania infected sheep destined for export to Russia with anthrax.

Many countries have been experimenting on pathogens especially virus and they are trying to weaponize it.

What Countries Have Them? Only 16 countries have them or being suspected to be having them.

The use of biological weapons is prohibited under customary international humanitarian law as well as a variety of international treaties. The use of biological agents in armed conflict is a war crime.

But what if it gets in the wrong hands ???

Then that’s called bioterrorism. If they are able to lay their hands on bioweapons then we’re all doomed.

We may be facing a biowar in the near distant future

So we should be prepared to face against bioterrorism. Many countries have taken steps against bioterrorism.

So we must pool all of our resources and set up labs with cutting edge technology. We must make investments in research and development of tools that are able to detect lethal bacteria and virus in the environment .

Countries like Netherlands and Israel have already taken these steps so we must all be set ,every step of the way to fight bioterrorism.

Bioterrorism is a major threat to humanity so we must be ready to be able to defend us from these threats.

Now that’s all for today .

I’ll see you all in my next blog.

The ugly guys in microbiology๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ

Hiiiiiii everyone ,this is the epic conclusion to the blog I have been writing for the past few months and fasten you’re seatbelts for this epic conclusion.

We have seen about the good and bad microbes and now we’re gonna see about the ugly microbes.

Ugly microbes are the ones that cause infection and disease to plants ,animals and us.

Plant disease:

I must mention a example from the past , the great famine of ireland.

The potato crops in ireland were affected by the eukaryotic organism called phytoptora Infestans.

The disease was called as the potato blight.

And other plant microbial diseases are wheat rust ,yellow rust .

THE WORST GUYS:

Urinary tract infections are caused by e.coli and staphylococcus aureus causes infections like boils and cellulitis(sort of skin infection).infections can be treated with antibiotics .

But what if they are antibiotic resistant???????๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Antibiotic resistant, so called super bug bacteria such as MRSA are responsible for life threatening bacterial infections

The above pic represents the super bug and the pic below is the infection caused by it.

And neisseria meningitis is responsible for meningitis in children and this disease has a mortality rate of about 10 percent.

That’s it guys we have come to the end of this blog ,this is a vast topic and can be explored further .

I hope you learned something today through my blog .

THE BAD GUYS :๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

#microdaily2000#microdaily#bacteria# microbiology

Hiiiiiiii everyone meeting you all after a long time through my blog .

Well this is the sequel to my previous blog so if you haven’t seen the first one go check it soon ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Everything was normal until their arrival๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข

They are responsible for the spoilage of our foods and also they poison our food and make us suffer.

Pic:the horde (fear them)and(beware of them)

This image is somewhat similar to the movie split ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

Microbes do a lot of good deeds to mankind but not all of them are good

Microbes are also responsible for food spoilage and food poisoning.

Molds ,bacteria, yeast and fungi take part in spoiling our food.

They’re the reason for food spoilage.

When exposed ,the microbes make our food as their habitat and they spoil them with ease.eventhough we have our own way of preserving and protecting our food,sometimes we cannot deny the fact that they get spoiled and these bad guys are responsible for this

Microbes that spoil our food:

Microbes like leuconostoc ,serratia and micrococcus are responsible for food spoilage

Pic:leuconostoc

Pic: Alcaligenes

Pic:serratia on a petri plate

Pic:micrococcus

Its not a big deal when microbes spoil our food because ,we’ll dispose it or discard it.

But the real problem comes when they poison our food . You may think that food poisoning is a common problem but if it is not treated it may be fatal and the main cause of illness and hospitalization and deaths because of food poison in foreign countries is salmonella-they are worse๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข

Salmonella is a gram negative bacteria and it is mostly transmitted when we come in contact with infected cattle and pig and sometimes in poultry items.

But we can avoid these guys by following some proper methods .

.

.

.

.

.

.

But the worse is yet to come๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

We have seen about the good guys

The bad guys but we’ll be learning about even worse in my next blog.

I would like thank everyone who encouraged me and supported me to do a sequel .first I thought of doing a duology but now I think I’ll be doing a trilogy .

You know just like nolanverse and shyamalans eastrail 177 trilogy.

I have planned to do a trilogy to this blog

The good ,the bad and the worse!!!

This is enough for today guys

The good guys in MICROBIOLOGY ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

Probably he is not the good guy we’re going to speak about today๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ.

Those who have watched childs play movie may know him because this doll here is the antagonist of the movie.

Today we’re gonna see about the good microbes which are used in various fields by the humans.

Food making:

Well I have previously studied about them in food and dairy microbiology which was a major paper in our department.

Many microbes are employed in food making. They are user friendly and do not harm us

LACTIC ACID BACTERIA:

The name says it all ,these guys produce lactic acid which is an end product of fermentation process.they are also found in our digestive system.

Basically they are used in yoghurt and cheese making

Yum yum ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘†

Fig:Lactic acid bacteria

MOLDS:

One must know the difference between a good mold and a bad mold

I didn’t mean them ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Do you know why I uploaded this pic

When I googled uses of mold I got this one and after seeing this I was like what๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Jokes apart guys

Molds are used to make certain kinds of cheese and they can be found on the surface of the cheese or may be they may have developed internally

This one here is a blue viened cheese

Medicine:

You guys know about penicillin right

Pencillin-the wonder drug

Actually Fleming was onto something else but accidentally he found this one out.this is extracted from pencillium notatum and has been usefull to us.

Next medicine on the list is cylcosporin

It is one of the important immunosuppressive drug

Okay guys we have come to the end of the blog, I’m gonna do a sequel for this blog

The first one:good guys

Te second one:bad guys๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

So until then

Microbes in drinking water ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’งโ˜ฃโ˜ฃ

Hi everyone meeting you all after a long time through my blog

Actually I must have published this blog a month ago ,you know right after I posted about microbes in brain but I didn’t have enough time publish this immediately .

You know what I got the idea for this blog when I was watching the movie THE TUXEDO starring Jackie chan๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Pic courtesy:wikipedia

PLOT OF TUXEDO:

This is a spy spoof movie in which Jackie plays a role of a chauffeur who has to fill in the shoes of agent Clark Devlin who has met with an accident .

The movies plot revolves around a terrorist organization planning to take over the world by poisoning drinking water with a bacteria which is secreted by an insect know as water strider

Jc looking at the water strider insect๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

And finally Jackie saves the day๐Ÿ˜by annihilating the bad guy(actually he gets killed by a swarm of water striders๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ)

But what we’re going to see about is that do drinking water contain microbes in it ???????

Yes it does ……………………

The above list includes some of the microorganisms found in drinking water#top10drinkingwatermicrobes๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Drinking water actually contains lot of microbes than purified water

Yes even water which has undergone treatment may contain small trace of microbes๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Many water treatment methods are employed to purify our drinking water.but what about non purified water ,they contain a lots and lots of microbes in it such as legionella and enterovirus .

These microbes sometimes can be fatal and may cause disease to us

Pic courtesy:wiki

Will you drink something like this?????

Ewwwwww๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ

He is the main antagonist of movie tuxedo๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ๐ŸคฃHaha

Earth contains 70 percent of water and our drinking water contains 45 percent of microbes including virus ,bacteria and parasitic protozoa

You have just seen a glimpse of my topic we will further discuss about it briefly in the up coming blogs until then

Do microorganism live in brain????

Hello there , I’m writing after a long time and sorry guys I was unable to write for the past few days due to some issues .

Its vacation time for me and I haven’t visited anywhere ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญbut I enjoy my holiday just by watching television๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… and even sometimes I used to play online games in my mobile phone

Today I’m here to share a few information regarding the presence of microbes in brain๐Ÿง ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿง 

I have mentioned many times that microbes are ubiquitous and they can be present everywhere didn’t I????๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

Yes we have beneficial microbes in our body which helps us and does not give trouble to us

Pic courtesy:wiki

These are some fancy pics depicting the microbiota in our body

Did you know how I got the spark for this topic ??????

I was watching LUCY the movie this afternoon which has scarlet Johansson as the protagonist

Beautiful isn’t she๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

In this movie we may come across the idea of using 100 percent of our human brain efficiently , but the average human uses just 10 percent isn’t it

So while I was watching this movie I just got the spark for this topic

MICROBES IN HUMAN BRAIN๐Ÿง ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

First of all remember that microbes are ubiquitous and we might not worry about these tiny guys inhibiting our brain ,because a recent research done by some scientist states that they do live in our brain but they wont harm us. In the new study researchers analysed 30 plus postmortem report analysis and found that every brain had signs of microbial lifeform

But they did not find any inflamation or any infection in the brain but they found that the bacteria were mostly inhibiting certain regions of brain such as the hippocampus,prefrontal cortex and substantia nigra but most of the bacteria were from the gut which means they might have travelled๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš—๐Ÿšฆ๐Ÿšฆ

This new study gives rise to the possibility of the brain might have a microbiome similar to gut microbiome.

So I think this would be enough for today

Please do comment ,share you’re views and do like my blog .if you’re a wordpress user you can like it but if you’re not ,you cant like it anyways still you can comment๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… .

Marine microbes and how do they survive????

You must have heard this caption somewhere ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… it’s nothing just take a look at the image given below

Pic courtesy :wiki

Now look at my version

How is it??

Any ways like I told you before today we’re gonna see how marine microbes survive in the ocean

In order to survive one must need energy and in order to obtain energy one must eat ie:consume so what do microbes consumes especially marine microbes , they consume chemicals which seep down from the rocks.

The rock contains iron ions that can react with sea water and then produce hydrogen, which the bacteria can use as an energy source for producing their own organic matter.

This is an type of chemical synthesis which is an alternative energy source to photosynthesis also occurs elsewhere on earth for example, this type of synthesis can be found in the warm springs of the sea bed .

My thoughts on marine microbes๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ

Hello to everyone who’s reading my blog post๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

It’s been a long time isn’t it????

The reason I didn’t post for a long time was because I had some issues .

And a good news to everyone I have started a page in instagram๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘ป . You can follow me there @microdaily2000. I couldn’t find a better user name than that ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

Today we’re gonna see about marine microbes ,so let’s not waste our time and get into the topic

So what I’m gonna say here is just my point of view ,so don’t think that’s accurate or not . I’m just gonna share my thoughts on this .

DO MICROBES LIVE IN OCEAN:

Fishes,carps(a type of fish),sharks(reminds me of jaws movie),dolphin(cute friendly creatures) live in marine environment and also I know a person who can live in both land and water that’s none other than aquaman๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Pic courtesy:wiki

Aquaman recently got his standalone movie which became an unexpected hit for dceu(DC extended universe)

It has grossed over 1 billion dollars ,we can see aquaman having abilities which makes him to talk to fish๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜…. That’s just an work of fiction isn’t it???

So let’s come to the reality in where is it possible for the microbes(tiny microscopic guys) to live underneath such pressure

Yes sir they can cause these tiny guys are ubiquitous ie:they can be present everywhere

Pic courtesy:wiki

Marine microbes include cellular lifeforms such as bacteria, fungi, plankton, viruses

Viruses are found abundant in the ocean If they are stretched end to end they would span farther than 60 nearest galaxies- curtis suttle, university of British Columbia

They’re eveeywhere๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Microscopic view of these guys(microbes)

But how do they survive????

What will they eat???

How would they reproduce ???

You’ll be getting you’re answers in the upcoming posts so until then ,

Do parasitic microorganism exist๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ????

#venom#bacteria#parasite

Hey there Im back with my blog. You guys must be familiar with the marvel antihero venom. For those of you who don’t know about him I’ll share some info about him

#venom#eddiebrock #instagram

Here he is! This big guy in the pic is venom

So in the comics he is the main antagonist who plots against spider man.

Venom is symbiote from outer space who shares a mutual relationship with his host. He gains his energy from his host whereas he gives the host superhuman abilities.

Omg spidey against venom ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Clash off between them#venom#spiderman

So while watching the movie I thought that are there symbiots like this in real life and since I’m a microbiology undergraduate I know it is not possible but there are some parasitic microorganism which live inside the host and feeds on them.

What are bacterial parasites???

While some bacteria are parasites, not all bacteria are. Neither are all parasites bacteria. Parasites can be any organism that uses another as a host, and sometimes that parasitic organism is bacteria. It depends on the life cycle of the parasitic organism and how it uses the host. The bacteria that causes strep throat acts as a parasite in the human body because it uses the host to multiply and eventually spread to another organism.

Chinese parasite pattern art

Source:Instagram ๐Ÿ‘ป

Examples of Parasitic Bacteria
If bacteria can infect a host, multiply inside the body and eventually spread to another organism, it exhibits the behavior of a parasite. Many bacterial diseases do this. In particular, food-borne illness such as salmonella exhibit this behavior. Other examples of bacteria that act as parasites are those which cause sexually transmitted diseases. The bacteria that causes syphilis and gonorrhea use the natural function of human hosts to multiply and spread. Additional bacteria that act as parasites include those that cause the diseases cholera, small pox and the Bubonic plague.

So guys I hope this is enough for today

I’ll meet you via my next blog

Until then good bye
