10 Diseases That Can Kill A Person In Under 24 Hours

According to HPL magazine, many diseases constitute a serious threat to human life since they might kill a victim without providing them the opportunity to fight for their lives. The worst aspect about these diseases is that they can kill in a day by weakening and poisoning the victim's body in a short period, resulting in early death. The fact that some of them have no cure makes them much more dangerous. These diseases have a high mortality rate. Here are the world's most fatal diseases that you must stay away from.

1. Meningococcal disease

It is transferred by infected people's saliva and nasal secretions. People who are affected can develop serious neurological disorders, such as cognitive impairments, severe headaches, and depression.

The meninges, or lining of the brain and spinal cord, are attacked by the disease, and a person's reflexes can be severely hampered. They may become more sensitive to light, experience body aches, fever, stiff neck, and have a lower energy level.

2. Flesh-eating bug

This bug can quickly sweep across the body, consuming soft tissue. It's frequently caused by a combination of germs.

3. Stroke

It assaults and kills the connective tissue that surrounds muscles, nerves, fat, and blood vessels. This can result in limb or life loss.

A stroke occurs when a blood artery in the brain breaks or becomes blocked by a clot. It causes brain injury by cutting off the oxygen supply. One side of the body is affected.

4. Cholera

This is an intestinal infection caused by consuming tainted water or food. The affected person experiences diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and death.


This is a condition in which bacteria are resistant to a wide range of antibiotics. It causes minor skin illnesses such as blisters or boils. However, it has the potential to cause more serious skin infections, as well as infect surgical incisions, the bloodstream, the lungs, and the urinary tract.

6. Enterovirus

The virus is disseminated by the saliva, coughs, and sneezes of the sufferer. Fever, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, and muscle discomfort are some of the symptoms. It causes wheezing and serious breathing problems, which can lead to death.

7. Bubonic plague

A bite of fleas from an infected small animal, such as a rat, causes it. Fever and chills, headaches and body aches, vomiting, and nausea are among the symptoms.

8. Ebola

This virus is spread through close contact with infected animals' blood, secretions, organs, or bodily fluids.

9. Dengue fever

An infected mosquito spreads the disease. High temperature, headaches, eye pain, joint pain, muscle and bone pain, and a rash or bleeding from the nose and gums are all symptoms.

10. Malaria

The disease is spread by mosquitos and can be found all over the world. The parasite rapidly destroys red blood cells, which are responsible for delivering oxygen to the body's tissues.
