Ebola in Africa

Ebola is the deadly disease marked by hemorrhagic fever.  The bleeding can be internal as well as externally. Due to the absence of precise medication and the potent vaccine to cure the Ebola virus occurrence of this disease is the cause of intense havoc in the World. Though the virus is known from a long time back its effective vaccination and medication have not been developed. It is extremely contagious nature transmitting due to this the cremation ritual of the dead needs to be done under standard guidance.


1. Incubation Day

This is the day of the invasion of virus and occurrence of disease. Depending on several circumstances the incubation day varies from two to twenty-one days.

2. Symptoms

Blood is seen in vomiting, coughing and defecating (1). In some cause bleeding from the eye and heavy bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract occurs. Rapid weight loss, chest, stomach pain, etc. are the common symptoms of Ebola although the symptoms are similar to that of common disease.

3. Treatment

The infected patient needs to isolated to prevent the other members of families and friend from getting infected. Treatment is followed by rehydration and practicing of the variety of drugs

4. Transmission

Due to high contagious nature of this virus, it can get spread by the variety of means some of the common means of transmission is through the contact of body fluid (2).  This is the zoonotic disease transmitted from the fruit bats, primates like gorilla, chimpanzee, antelopes, etc. Human contact with infected dead or alive animals spread this deadly disease. Due to the highly contagious nature, the healthcare professional can also get infected.

Ebola does not posses danger of airborne transmission.

5. Diagnosis

6. Outbreak

The outbreak of this disease monthly occurs in Africa. Due to this reason, it is also called as the disease of Africa.

7. Preventive Measure

Avoid consuming the undercooked bush meat of any kinds. Unnecessary touching of the wild animals should be avoided. A scientist doing taxidermy of the wild animals need to follow strict guidelines to prevent infection. The burial of the infected person needs to be done with the standard guideline recommended.

This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

The first application of the communism was done in French where the priests from the church are brutally put to death. It was the unsuccessful revelation. Later Vladimir Lenin from Russia makes the modification in this tenet and did the successful revelation. …

Any Facebook and Mobile number of Aghori Baba is almost all the potential traps.
The origin of Aghori Sects seems hazy. The scent of evidence suggests that a recluse of medieval Kashmir might have inducted this sect. Due to the varied of s…

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
