Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) is one of the female reproductive health condition that involves the inflammation of the organs found in the pelvic cavity and or floor (Hinkle & Cheever, 2017). PID can either be cervicitis, salpingitis involving the fallopian tube, endometriosis, or swelling of the ovaries. Inflammation of these organs can either be acute, severe, or chronic, depending on the causative agent. It usually occurs from a bacterial cause. Mostly, the condition is not a primary disease entity but a complication of either urinary tract infection or the sexually transmitted infection (Kreisel et al., 2017). During its early stages, the disease is asymptomatic, but the symptoms become prominent as the condition advances if not identified and treated.

Diaper candidiasis or diaper rash as it is famously known is a fungal (yeast) infections that usually affect babies who dressed in diapers. Treating this yeast infection has been proven to be effective with clotrimazole. Clotrimazole is classified under the anti-microbial class of antifungals. This drug achieves its therapeutic roles through inhibition of the process of the fungal cell membrane. To accomplish its effects specifically, clotrimazole inhibits the synthesis of the ergosterol component of the fungal cell membrane by interfering with the cytochrome p-450 enzyme necessary to catalyze the synthetic process (Akins & Sobel, 2017).

Senator Tom Cotton has reignited a debate on suspicions that coronavirus is an artificial creation in a lab.

Sen. Cotton claims that Wuhan based Cellular Level Biosafety Level 4 lab is the starting point of Coronavirus spread. This labor is a high-level operational security facility for research on dangerous pathogens. The lab is near the food market, where the first infections are said to originate.

Cotton wants a further investigation on the possible connection of the virus spread and Chinas sole biosafety level 4 super laboratory. He told Fox News that he does not have evidence to support his claim but relates it to chase the government’s dishonesty and duplicity from the start of the outbreak. There have been claims that the communist party had silenced doctors from revealing the existence of coronavirus.

How deadly is coronavirus ?

Coronavirus is a family of viruses causing illnesses ranging from the common cold to severe diseases like Middle East Respiratory Severe (MERS) and Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). They transmit between animals and people, although several Coronaviruses circulate in animals without infecting humans.

Coronavirus is from a Latin word corona that means a crown or halo. The appearance of the virus resembles a solar corona when it is under an electron microscope. The name that researchers gave to the type of coronavirus that Chinese authorities identified on January 7, 2020, is COVID-19. It has become more deadly since it is the first time for identification in human beings. The information available about it is minimal, although there is confirmation of human to human transmission.

COVID-19 is very deadly as it has spread widely in China, and reports of infection are coming from other countries. Below are the reasons why coronavirus is deadly.

How Coronavirus Spread From Wuhan City To The Rest Of The World

Coronavirus is a viral disease that researchers believe began in the food market at Wuhan City in China. The fast spread is mostly due to limited information regarding the infection. The virus spreads from person to person when people are nearby within about 6 feet. Respiratory droplets from a person with a virus or touching contaminated surfaces contribute to spreading.

Scientists have beyond the mystery trying to assess the reasons contributing to widespread infection from the epicenter to other cities in China and other countries.Below are some of the reasons for the fast spread from Wuhan.

Concealment by Government 

The Chinese government is more transparent about coronavirus that it was about SARs infection, but critics have concerns about a late announcement. The late acknowledgment delayed human intervention. A few doctors, according to Yaxue Cao founder and of ChinaChange.org political pressure group, discussed the threat of a potential outbreak in early December 2019.

A post by a Wuhan doctor in a WeChat group communicated the discovery of seven cases of infection connected to the seafood market. At the time, they thought it was SARS. The doctor had to retract his post after scolding the communist party disciplinary office. The report further reveals that Wuhan health authorities had overnight meetings about the “new type SARS” during the last days of December.

Golden Princess is the largest Melbourne based cruise ship that spends its time between Asia, Australia, and South Pacific .it has recently become a talking point for wrong reasons after the passengers and crew got coronavirus on board. It was put on quarantine for 14 days until February 19, 2020.

The quarantine became necessary after, at last, 542 out of 3,711 passengers and crew tested positive for coronavirus as of February 4, 2020. The high number of infections made the ship becomes the most infections site outside the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the infection began.

Purpose of quarantine

The reason for quarantine is that a passenger disembarked from the ship in Hong Kong on Jan 25, 2020, got ill and tested positive for Covid-19. Golden Princess was docked at Yokohama, Japan, for the period of containment before any passenger or crew members could leave.

Passengers had to stay in their cabins throughout the confinement. Crew members were the only lifeline for passengers when they require anything. The crew delivers the food, water, medication, towels, and anything a passenger might require.

Creepy crawlers scare humans, and they either run or kill anything that has more than 4 legs, glistening eyes, exhibits a stinger or protruding fangs. However, science has a different story because it shows that that venomof the natural world hasa potential for safe medicinal treatments and cures but after harvesting.

Researchers have investigated and found venom from spiders and other animals has therapeutic effects for a variety of poisons from insect and animal bites. When put into the right use, the poisons that can kill have properties that help to save the lives.

University of Rochester Medical Center researchers found out that loss of muscle stem cells is a core reason behind the decline of muscle. These findings challenge current belief that age-related muscle decline occurs because of failure of the motor neurons.

The findings show the reason that makes stem cells to be unique in regenerative therapy. A stem cell divides to stay in the current form or become another type such as a brain or nerve cell. Stem cells can with directing help to treat specific tissues and cell types that enable treating of diseases such as spinal cord injury, heart disease or stroke.
