Answer to Question #107819 in Microbiology for fa

Question #107819
Last Christmas your friend, Steve, took a trip to Brazil to hang out at the beach and to visit the Amazon (the place not the online store!). A couple of days back in the states from his trip, he tells you he can’t come to your party because he isn’t feeling well. You ask him what is wrong, and he tells you he has a headache and muscle aches. The next day he has a high fever, chills and some nausea/vomiting. He isn’t eating much at this point. You take him to the ER because he is so weak and in pain. They decide to do a full work up.

Which “samples” would they take from Steve? Name two. Be sure to explain why they would take these samples.
Expert's answer

They should take blood and mucus samples. From these samples they should be able to test for prescence of bacteria, diseases causing micro-organisms(germs) and also they should be able to determine the cause of any infection
