Elgon in Kenya. He uses Charles Monet, the French owner of a sugar company to depict images and explanations of how the disease kills the infected after having undergone mild fever, body aches and blood vomiting. The victim, in this case Charles Monet, dies a terrible death after undergoing organs failure and extensive bleeding. The second case, which is very interesting, is a situation in a monkey house in Renton, Virginia which is just a short distance from the White House. Preston explains the discovery of a new type of Ebola virus at this place that kills the Monkeys imported from the Philippines.
“Using alternative evidence, critically evaluate Bennett-Levy and Marteau study ‘Fear of Animals’” Bennett-Levy and Marteau concluded that humans are biologically programmed to fear certain characteristics of animals such as how suddenly and animal is perceived to move. Alternate research includes Cook and Mineka, where monkeys were shown a video tape of other monkeys being fearful towards animals which monkeys are usually known to be feared of (fear-relevant objects) such as snakes. Later on, the monkeys displayed fear towards these animals when they were exposed to them in real life. The same monkeys were then shown a video tape of not fear-relevant objects such as toy rabbits and artificial flowers and when exposed to them in real life, the same observational learning did not occur as the monkeys were not afraid of the toy rabbit and flowers. This study found that monkeys can only learn fear of fear relevant objects and not of fear-irrelevant objects.
In February 2006, Emily Jerry, a two-year old child was at a Cleveland hospital to complete her last series of chemotherapy treatment. Her doctor ordered intravenous chemotherapy solution that was filled incorrectly by a pharmacy technician. The prescription called for 1% saline; however, a lethal amount of 23% saline was given instead, causing her to slip into a coma resulting in death. Eric Cropp, who was the supervising pharmacist signed off on the technician’s work despite her informing him that the mixture did not look right; nonetheless, he approved it. The pharmacy was so busy that day and short staffed, which led to a preventable fatal error that changed Eric’s whole life in a matter of seconds.

Throughout the book, the spread of this thread virus (another name for filovirus) is traced back to the exploration by a French expatriate named “Charles Monet”. Preston reflects on Monet’s exposure to Ebola back to the Kitum Cave in Kenya which ultimately spreads globally through a not heavily regulated monkey trading ring to its appearance in Reston, Virginia, where it became a worldwide epidemic . Ebola enters the body through an exchange of bodily fluids similar to AIDs but the aftermath is nothing in comparison. Preston identifies four filoviruses strains—Marburg, Ebolua Sudan, Ebola Zaire and Ebola Reston—all of which have different mortality rates but the same effects on the body . Marburg is the least fatal with a fatality rate of twenty-five percent, Ebola Zaire is the most fatal with a ninety-percent kill rate.
"The Hot Zone” by Richard Preston is about a disease that has been spread throughout different areas and countries. The disease originated in Germany when a fleet of infected monkeys were let out into the wild. The disease spread rapidly and once people realized what was going on, they began rounding up monkeys to test them. Animals should not be used for scientific experiments because the experiments may harm the animals and spread the disease among the testers. In the Hot Zone, scientists collected monkeys and began testing them to check for any traces or signs of viruses and/ or diseases.
However, in the study done by Harlow, H. F., & Harlow, M. in 1966, it was proven that attachment is equally, if not more importantly, an emotional bond as it is a bond of survival. This was proven in their experiment ‘Harlow’s Monkeys’ by placing a false motherly figure made of wire with a false motherly figure made of cloth in a cage with infant rhesus monkeys. The wire mother had a milk supply and the cloth mother did not. Despite the lack of food, the monkeys gravitated towards the cloth mother in times of distress. The wire mother was approached only when hungry.
On Christmas he carried a sick bird, which later died (also the bird may or may not have had a Level 4 virus). After a few paragraphs of description on Mount Elgon, readers are informed the Mr. Monet had taken a woman to accompany him to go camping on Mount Elgon. After some reading on Mount Elgon’s geography readers find out Mr. Monet and his friend had visited Kitum Cave on New Year’s Day. Our author gives a lot of details and descriptions of the cave and the
