Nausea – Irritated stomach lining leads to discomfort. Slight chance of infection when kissing.
Vomiting (Nausea)– The expulsion of infected material through projectile vomiting increases the risk of infection.
Diarrhea (Nausea)– Pathogen active in digestive tract, causing infection through feces and potentially lethal dehydration. Poor countries very vulnerable.
Dysentery (Nausea) – A complete breakdown in the digestive system causes infected sewage, dehydration, starvation and death.
Pulmonary Odema (Coughing, Nausea)– Potentially fatal heart abnormality causes breakdown of respiratory system, releasing pathogen into the air.
Pulmonary fibrosis (Coughing)– Scarring of the lungs causes shortness of breath and extreme coughing. Can be fatal when combined with intense exercise.
Pneumonia (Coughing) – Serious fluid build and discharge from the lungs. People in cold climates especially vulnerable
Coughing – Chance of infection by spreading pathogen into surroundings, especially in high density, urban areas.
Sneezing (Coughing)– Fluid discharge through sneezing greatly increases infection rates.
Immune Suppression (Coughing) – Pathogens attach to lymphocytes, suppressing immune system and allowing significantly greater freedom of mutation. Can be lethal.
Total Organ Failure (Coughing) – Catastrophic cell death of multiple types causes body-wide organ failure and rapid death.
Fever (Coughing, Rash) – Increase in temperature, contagiousness and severe dehydration, which can be fatal.
Sweating (Rash) – The loss of fluid through sweating also increases infection rates due to poor hygiene. More dangerous in cold countries.
Rash – The skin becomes blistered and painful, slightly increasing infectivity
Skin Lesions (Rash) – Breakdown in the epidermis causes large open wounds which significantly increase infectivity.
Necrosis (Rash) – Large swathes of infected tissue lose blood supply and become fatal sources of gangrene. Decomposed bodies remain a vector of transmission.
Insomnia – Inability to sleep makes people irritable and less productive
Paranoia (Insomnia)– Irrational delusions and mental symptoms. Victims distrust of others makes them unlikely to seek treatment or cooperate with others.
Seizures – Random blackouts and fits reduce the patient’s ability to function independently. Can be fatal.
Insanity (Insomnia) – Neuropathic action of the pathogen in the frontal cortex causes severe emotional and behavioral abnormalities. Significantly harder to cure.
Inflammation (Insomnia, Cysts) – Inflammation obstructs bodily process. Swelling can obstruct breathing and be fatal.
Cysts – Painful lumps containing pockets of the pathogen. Slight chance of bursting which can spread disease.
Hyper sensitivity (Cysts) – Increases likelihood of allergic reactions which can distract the immune system. Rich regions particularly vulernable.
Paralysis (Cysts) – Pathogen destroys motor neurons to cause paralysis. Significantly harder to cure and can be lethal.
Coma (Cysts) – Neuropathic effects in the brain stem cause loss of consciousness and sometimes death. Significantly harder to cure.
Systemic infection (Cysts) – Pathogen affects multiple organs and tissue types, causing body wide infections that spread fast and can be fatal
Abscesses (Cysts) – Pockets of infected flesh are painful and act as breeding grounds for the pathogen, increasing infection rates when burst.
Tumors (Cysts, Anemia) – Pathogen disrupts cell growth pathways, causing uncontrolled, eventually fatal tumor growth.
Internal Hemorrhaging (Anemia) – Flesh eating pathogen breaks down arterial membranes causing rapid internal bleeding and death.
Hemorrhagic Shock (Anemia) – Failure of the heart to pump effectively causes oxygen deprivation, loss of consciousness and death.
Hemophilia (Anemia) – Reduced blood clotting prevents wounds healing. Pathogen able to spread through infected blood.
Anemia – Decrease in red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood can lead to hypoxia in the organs.
