Case study- Small pox

Name of Patient
Shelley Shell-shocked

Date let out
Head ache
High fever

Severe fatigue
Severe back pain
Pusses (similar to measles)
Shelley Shell-shocked first came had an appointment on the first of January 2012 after experiencing a serious headache and nausea. Previously her symptoms were thought to be a hangover from the wild New Year’s party she attended the night before. The doctor checking her decided that it just was the start of flu and prescribed some antibiotics. A couple of days later Shelley returned to hospital in an ambulance, her body was covered in red blisters. She was vaccinated and immediately put into isolation as small pox can be very contagious. Doctors have asked how she got small pox as the World Health Assembly declared the world free of small pox in 1980 but she refuses to answer and claims she doesn’t know. Unfortunately for Sally, by the time she’s better again she’ll be scarred for life.

Great work with the case study Meghna.
You can add the links to sources you look at during your research, so that you can always know where you got the information from (even though you have clearly paraphrased it and made it your own).
You can add all your homework tasks to here (eg the Malaria One World practice task)
Off to a good start with your wiki page,
