Vomiting, shock, viscera falling out of the body... Tell a True Story of "Heavy Bleeding"

Today's story happened more than 40 years ago.
The hero of the story is Charles Monet, a handsome French naturalist.

The French are somewhat romantic. During the Christmas holidays this year, he decided to have a different life. He would take his female companion on a trip to Mount Elgon in Kenya .

Ergong volcano

Ergong volcano is located on the border between Uganda and Kenya, inhabiting various tribes, a small part of which is divided into Forest National parks. More than seven million years ago, Ergong volcano had a strong explosion. The ash covered the original rain forest and formed a new rain forest on the ash. Charles Monet and his female companion camped in the rainforest and spent a few sweet days. After New Year's Day, they walked along the valley, through the clumps of olive trees and grasslands, and found the largest natural cave in the park - < strong > Chitam Cave . The cave is covered with green mucus. This disgusting thing is the excrement of < strong > fruit bat < strong > strong > strong > which lives on plants.


Monet and his friends roamed the cave for a whole day, illuminating the cold and wet stones with flashlights.

No one knows whether he reached out to touch the sharp stones or whether he touched the excrement of the fruit bats... On the seventh day after visiting Chitam Cave on New Year's Day, that is, January 8, that year, Monet felt a dull pain in the back of his eyes, and the temple began to ache. Aspirin was of no use, and the pain even spread to the whole back. On the third day of headache, he began to nausea, fever and vomiting. As vomiting became more and more serious, it eventually turned into nausea. < p > < p > Eyes are the earliest changes. First, they can't open, their eyelids are drooping, their eyeballs are coagulated, and then they gradually become bright red. Then the skin turned yellow and there were bright red spots.

family sent him to the hospital, but the doctor injected him with antibiotics has no effect, they recommend that the patient be transferred to Nairobi Hospital, where there is the best private hospital in eastern Africa. On the plane, his situation was getting worse and worse.

He covered his mouth with airsickness bag, coughed from deep lung, and when he looked up, his lips were mixed with red mucus with black patches. Eyes have become like rubies, and anyone who sees them will be frightened. The red spots on his face had spread and turned into large purple masses, so far as he could see, his < strong > head was black and blue. The face is like dissolving, and the muscles begin to droop.

Vomiting seems to have caused the rupture of nasal vessels, and he began to bleed. The nosebleeds are bright red and spray thin, dripping on the teeth and under the chin. The blood can't stop because the < strong > coagulation factor has been exhausted .

Finally, he collapsed in his seat, all the passengers around him retreated far away and whispered about his life and death.


Fortunately, he did not die on the plane, but was sent to the hospital in Nairobi.
By the time he arrived at the hospital, he was completely exhausted, dizzy and extremely weak. His spine collapsed, flabby and unbalanced, leaving him spinning around even as he lay down in bed. < p > < p > but he did not have the strength to howl, and then < strong > went into shock < / strong >.

Suddenly, he uttered a spasmodic groan and a huge amount of blood gushed out of his stomach; he had lost consciousness, but his physiological reaction still drove him to vomit bleeding fluid and black substances. At this time, a wet mass of things fell from the bed, which was his internal organs!

Ebola patient's corpse in the street for several days, the whole body was melting bleeding

His large intestine was completely opened, blood was ejected from the anus to the outside, blood mixed with intestinal wall tissue, intestinal wall tissue fell off, with a large number of fresh blood discharged outside the body, falling under the bed, it was his own internal organs! Everyone in the waiting room was shocked by the sight, even the most experienced doctors had never seen it. Everyone was hiding behind his mouth and nose in a hurry. Not even a doctor dared come forward to check on him. He had run out of blood.

mysterious virus

the story above is true.

Richard Preston, Ph.D., Princeton University, in his documentary work Blood Disease, records an early Marburg virus infection in Africa that can be traced back to.

The outbreak in Sierra Leone in 2014

Marburg virus disease (formerly known as Marburg haemorrhagic fever) is a serious human disease, usually with lethality .

Marburg is a place name in Germany. In 1967, when the disease was first recorded in human history, a disease with a mortality rate of more than 88% occurred in Marburg, Germany. People began to recognize the virus and named it after the place where it was first discovered.

Marburg and Ebola virus infection are very similar, both of them are rare diseases and can cause a large epidemic with high fatality rate; both belong to filovirus family members, and the two diseases are highly similar clinically, both of which are with "bleeding" as the core manifestation . < p > < p > < p > < p > < p > Left: Marburg virus < br > < / P > < p > Right: Ebola virus < / P > < p > So it is included in the book "Blood Disease". The Marburg and Ebola epidemics in many places are also introduced concurrently.

The first human Ebola epidemic reported by the World Health Organization was in 1976, the first of two simultaneous outbreaks, one in a village near the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the other in a remote area of Sudan.

The quiet and beautiful Ebola River

Ebola virus is also named for this beautiful river. Ebola virus disease (formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever) is a serious and often fatal disease caused by the Ebola virus of the filovirus family, with a mortality rate of up to 90%. The origin of the virus is unknown. But according to the available evidence, fruit bats may be a host of Ebola virus.

Who is the most susceptible to infection? During the epidemic period, health workers, family members or other persons who have close contact with infected persons, mourners who have direct contact with dead bodies during funerals are easy targets of infection.

In 2014, Martin Salia, a surgeon infected with Ebola virus, died in the United States.

Salia is a Sierra Leonean citizen, but lives in Maryland. He worked as a general surgeon at Kissy United Methodist Hospital in Freetown, the capital of Serbia. He contracted Ebola at work and was treated at a biology research center in Ohama after being taken back to the United States. Jeffrey P. Gold, director of the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, once said with great sadness, "We have provided the most supportive care and used all kinds of available advanced technologies in an attempt to save his life. But even if this is the best place to treat advanced Ebola patients, even if we can use the most modern technology, once the patient reaches the critical point, it will not be enough to save the patient.

People are infected by contacting infected animals (usually at slaughter, cooking or eating) or by contacting the body fluids of infected people. Most cases are caused by interpersonal transmission. Infected person's blood, other body fluids or secretions (feces, urine, saliva and semen) enter healthy human body through damaged skin or mucosa, which will cause interpersonal infection.

Infection can also occur when the damaged skin or mucosa of healthy people come into contact with objects or environment contaminated by body fluids of infected persons. Contaminated items include dirty clothing, sheets, gloves, protective equipment and medical waste (such as used hypodermic syringes).

But don't worry, there is no Ebola epidemic in China at present. When and where the Ebola epidemic occurred, Laogong sorted it out for you:

p>14 August 2014, the World Health Organization in Geneva reiterated that The risk of transmission of the virus by air travel remains low. Dr. Isabelle Nuttall, Director of the World Organization's Global Warning and Response Division, pointed out that Ebola was not transmitted by air, but by direct contact with patients'body fluids.

But if you have any intention of traveling to the above epidemic areas, please keep in mind the World Health Organization's recommendation (see figure below):

1. During the journey: fever, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, or vomiting, diarrhea, bleeding, must tell the airline staff . < p > < p > 2. Arrive or leave the epidemic area: It's better not to touch people with suspicious symptoms, especially corpses, < strong > If you touch, wash your hands well and disinfect them with alcohol. <<<<<<<<<<<<<
