Questions and Answers
  • 1.

      Bacteria

    • B.

      Protozoa

    • C.

      Virus

    • D.

      Fungi

    Correct Answer
    C. Virus
    Explanation
    Rabies is caused by a virus. It is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system and is transmitted through the bite or scratch of an infected animal. The virus attacks the brain and spinal cord, leading to inflammation and ultimately causing severe neurological symptoms. This infectious disease primarily affects mammals, including humans, and is almost always fatal if left untreated. Therefore, the correct answer is virus.

    • C.

      Diarrhea

    • D.

      Coma

    Correct Answer
    A. Flu-like symptoms
    Explanation
    The first signs/symptoms of an infection are typically flu-like symptoms. These can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, fatigue, and sometimes nausea or vomiting. These symptoms are often similar to those experienced with the flu, which is a common viral infection. It is important to note that the specific symptoms can vary depending on the type of infection and the individual's immune response.

    How would the virus get into your body?

    • A.

      Scratches

    • B.

      Open wounds

    • C.

      Mucous membranes

    • D.

      Organ transplants

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The virus can enter the body through open wounds, scratches, mucous membranes, and organ transplants. Open wounds provide a direct pathway for the virus to enter the bloodstream. Scratches can also break the skin and allow the virus to enter. Mucous membranes, such as those in the nose, mouth, and eyes, can serve as entry points for the virus. Additionally, organ transplants can introduce the virus into the body if the donated organ is infected. Therefore, all of the mentioned options are potential ways for the virus to enter the body.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    _____ is a treatment for rabies.

    Correct Answer
    HRIG
    Explanation
    HRIG stands for Human Rabies Immune Globulin, which is a treatment for rabies. Rabies is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system and is usually transmitted through the bite or scratch of an infected animal. HRIG contains antibodies that help neutralize the rabies virus and prevent it from spreading in the body. It is administered to individuals who have been exposed to rabies to provide immediate protection while their immune system develops a response to the virus. HRIG is typically given along with the rabies vaccine to ensure effective treatment and prevention of the disease.

    Prevention for rabies:

    • A.

      Stay at home, don't touch any animals

    • B.

      Regular hikes through bat caves

    • C.

      Rabies vaccine up to date, report stray animals, spay/neuter pets

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Rabies vaccine up to date, report stray animals, spay/neuter pets
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above." This is because all the options listed - keeping the rabies vaccine up to date, reporting stray animals, and spaying/neutering pets - are effective measures for preventing rabies. Additionally, staying at home and avoiding contact with animals can also help reduce the risk of exposure to rabies. Therefore, following all of these preventive measures is the best approach to protect oneself and others from rabies.
