Vampires empire demolished
There are a lot of diseases that are transmitted by blood. HIV is the most known. Though the risk of being contaminated when drinking blood is low (Don't be astonished, some people drink blood during ritual celebrations according to their beliefs. It looks sensless, but it makes sens for some...) still none denied its existance. This takes me back to my religious background. In Islam, drinking blood is forbidden "Prohibited to you are dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah..." Quran 5:3
I found it difficult to classify this hub until deciding to make of it a fiction story and started writing its big lines. Today, I am sharing with you its general idea.
It all started in the hospital where I had a hemobiology training. I had to be cautious, when taking blood samples or analysing blood, not to be contaminated. I don't know why a flash memory made me think of vampires. It's been months since I watched a comic version of it.
Noctrune creatures who live in castles and need human blood to survive. Scary individuals against whom humans could do nothing. Vampires are shown to be rare and long living. What if these fictive creatures really existed? How would be their state in a world where illnesses having a blood transmission grow fastly?
Will HIV find another transmission mode? Will it make of an accessory way of transmission, a principle one? How will vampires react to stop this distructive virus? Will they finally live in peace with humans and collaborate to make an end to this nightmare? Or will it be a chance for humans to extermine vampires? The answers of these questions will be the subject of my short story. But first, let us learn a bit about HIV.
Human immunodeficiency virus in short is a retrovirus that attacks our immune cells. More specifically TCD4 cells. It causes a progressive deficiency of our immune system called AIDS (or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) exposing our body to a lot of infections and making even of the binin germs, dangerous ones.
