Haemiphilus aegyptius

Howdy, my name is H. aegyptius.
I'm a Gram negative bacteria from the Haemophilus genus.
Some people consider me to be a special type of H. influenzae.

I cause conjunctivits, but what I really enjoy giving to people is Brazilian purpuric fever.
It causes fever, abdominal pain, vomiting and a purpuric rash.
It was very common in Brazilian children.

Great design!
With some more dark humor and it'll be better than Tim Burton's "Melancholy death of oyster boy"
