PLAGUE


Introduction:

        Plague is an epidemic disease. This disease is known by many names too as Taoon and Goti Wala Jwar. It is contagious disease. A germ named besilus pestis is the cause of the origin of plague. Bacteria of this disease spread on humid areas and on a place where there are decayed and rotten things. Bacteria of this disease remain present in the spoiled things. Substances in which steam appear are the cause of the origin of these bacteria. First, the bacteria of this disease attack on the mice and people become the victim of these bacteria through mice. People, who have polluted substance in the body, become the patient of this disease earlier than the other. People with weak prophylactic power become the victim of this disease soon. Bacteria of this disease do not affect those people who have no polluted liquid in the body.

  • Bubonic plague
  • Pneumonic
  • Septicimic
  • Intestinal

        When any person suffers form plague, swellings like tumour occur in his muscles of thighs, neck and other body organs in which pain also is present and these tomours burst one by one. Sometimes, many glands become inflammed and cause pain. If glands burst within 4-5 days and fever subsides, it should be considered a good thing otherwise this disease can prove excessive dangerous. Sometimes, these glands burst within 7-10 days. This kind of plague is common.

Pneumonic plague proves troublesome for the patient.

        Many organs of the body start to decay when a person becomes the patient of septicimic plague. Blood of the patient becomes poisonous. Physical activities of the body stop.
