Meningitis is a severe infection that affects the protective layers of the brain and spinal cord. It can be caused by bacterial or viral infections and can be fatal if not treated immediately. Young children, teenagers, and adults are most susceptible to this dreadful disease. Septicemia, which can lead to vein damage and be life-threatening, is a common complication of meningitis.

Necrotizing fasciitis is a bacterial skin condition that spreads quickly and can cause death in 30% of cases. Amputation does not stop the cancer from spreading to other parts of the body. Therefore, it is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted, causing brain tissue to die from a lack of oxygen. Recovery from a stroke varies depending on its severity. However, if a second severe stroke occurs within two hours, the risk of death increases dramatically.

Cholera is a severe form of diarrhea that can be fatal in a matter of hours if left untreated. The disease is caused by consuming contaminated food or drink. The World Health Organization estimates that cholera claims the lives of between 21,000 and 143,000 individuals each year.

Lung-related issues caused by the bacteria Yersinia pestis, which spreads from rodents to humans via insects, can lead to fatal plague epidemics. Though basic anti-infectives can cure the plague, it can be fatal if not treated within 18 to 24 hours. Respiratory side effects include coughing, which often produces bloody sputum, and shortness of breath.

Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a severe viral infection that causes internal bleeding due to organ destruction and many bodily punctures. It has spread to several African countries and has an estimated death toll of 50 to 90 percent. Patients can suffer fatal injuries within hours of experiencing negative effects.

Dengue fever, a mosquito-borne virus that causes fever and mild flu-like symptoms, can turn into a dangerous form, leading to blood loss. It is essential to seek medical attention immediately if you experience any symptoms related to this deadly disease.
