Symptoms and Treatment
With 'Necro-Mortosis', the first signs of illness are fever, headache, weakness, and rapidly developing flu like symptoms, with shortness of breath, chest pain, cough, and sometimes bloody or watery sputum. The virus progresses for 2 to 4 days and may cause respiratory failure and shock.
Second stage is followed by severe chills, extreme lethargy, some disorientation,
and a gradual slowing of the heart rate. At this point, many fall into
coma or suffer stroke or heart failure. This is due to the massive shock
to the bodies immune system. Necrosis and mortification follow shortly afterwards.
Reanimation can occur within minutes. Studied subjects have nearly
always reanimated within the first hour of death
Early quarantine is essential. To reduce the chance of spreading the infection beyond the carrier , a professional quarantine must be given within 24 hours of first symptoms.
None effective procedures: Streptomycin, gentamicin, the tetracyclines, and chloramphenicol are all NONE effective against Necrotic plague.
Effective procedures: Avoid contact with open wounds , sores or saliva of first and second stage carriers. Avoiding all physical contact with second stage sufferers is essential. Wearing a close-fitting surgical mask also helps protect against infection.
A Mortosis virus vaccine is not currently available for use in the United States. However, the Inhibitor XL-6 is currently undergoing phase four tests. According to Amcalon Corporation's web site, in reference to XL-6 Test results:
'Studies in Berlin suggest that Antiviral test drugs can interrupt the process by which a virus reproduces at several stages. The inhibitor XL-6, for example, prevents the virus particle from opening after it enters the cell and can inhibit the manufacture of virus proteins. It also stop the virus from exiting the cell.'
