Document Summary

Broad spectrum of antibiotics - autopsy looking at cultures, doing spears -- plague pneumonia. Plagues only infect humans by accident -- only affect animals. Had a cat that had become sick during the week prior to her illness, outside cat. Before, cat brought in a dead chipmunk -- cat became ill, nursed cat. Cat was sneezing, wheezing, discharge from nose. Family reunion -- did not get the plague. Three types of plague - septicemia, bubonic, pneumonic (affects lungs) kills so fast that antibiotics are useless. Epidemics & society -- pathogen has its own life, interconnects in complicated ways with society itself -- plague evolved in rodents in central asia - more virulent causes disease - traveling (quiet transmission epidemic) 1345 - black death - buboes 1 in 4 people died, few to care for sick, stench in streets, overpiling, loss, angry, confused - crisis in faith -- blamed strangers (jews)
