Neisseria meningitidis


Hello, my name is N. meningitidis.
You can call me the meningococcus.
I am a Gram Negative cocci (round) bacteria.
I'm carried in the noses and mouths of 5-10% of people, but I don't make them sick.
They can give me to other people by kissing and sharing drinks.

I have 13 different 'serogroups' - my most deadly groups are A, B, C and Y.
These can quickly kill healthy people.

Most of the time, I cause meningitis and a special purple rash made of bleeding in the skin.
I can also infect your blood.

Never seen such beautiful presentation of topics which otherwise would be a lot more colourless and dull.
Fine piece of work and keep it up.

Maverick said...

Hi
Adopt a microbe is an attractive name, but not more attractive than the content, which is not more attractive than the presentation of the stuff.

So overall it's an awesome place. Nobody had thought that you can make microbes look so interesting.

Soul Searcher said...
