Dengue and Corona Virus
Dengue and corona have both been known to cause death in their most severe cases, but which of these deadly diseases? According to the World Health Organization, dengue causes roughly 50 million illnesses each year, while corona only affects around 400,000 people every year. With numbers like that, it’s no wonder dengue has received significantly more attention than corona. The dengue virus has a mortality rate of 2.5% while the coronavirus has a mortality rate of 20%. The coronavirus spreads much more rapidly than the dengue virus, which means that even if it’s less deadly overall, it has a higher chance of killing you in the short term.
Every year, there are close to 100,000 deaths caused by Cholera. At any given time there are approximately 5 million people at risk of contracting this disease. It typically affects the small intestine because the organism spreads through food or water contaminated with fecal matter.
Cancer is a horrific disease, even on its own – but there’s nothing more dreadful than lung cancer. It claims the lives of both genders alike and is at the top of the list of causes of death among those who suffer from cancer. On average, 1.38 million people die every year due to lung cancer; numbers that horrify us all.
The Ebola epidemic cannot be forgotten. Its deadly grip still lingers over those who are plagued by its memory. Victims often complain of muscle weakness, fever, and internal and external bleeding, among other symptoms. Scientists and researchers continue to try to find a cure for this terrible plague that claims too many lives. Throughout history, there has never been an outbreak so terrible or deadly as this – claiming countless souls every day!
A person may catch Tetanus from either a deep puncture wound or even just a small cut. The sufferer will experience sudden and drastic muscular contractions of their whole body; most notably of the facial muscles which will result in them being unable to fully close their mouth for weeks at a time.
This sexually transmitted disease takes the lives of more than thirty million people every year. More are infected each and every day. A virus called HIV is spread through sex, blood transfusion, or contact with bodily fluids from an infected person and damages a healthy body’s ability to fight off infection. These microbes cause illnesses including cancers and bacterial infection so they can feed off them without fear of being attacked by the immune system because its ability has been compromised.
Malaria is an infectious disease that leads to headaches and fever. It is transmitted through mosquito bites. Untreated, it could potentially kill a person. In some cases, the patient may slip into a coma. There is currently no vaccine against this illness.
