Amnesia

Normal memory function involves many parts of the brain, and any disease or injury that affects the brain can interfere with the intricacies of memory. Amnesia can result from damage to brain structures that form the limbic system, which controls your emotions and memories. These structures include the thalamus, which lies deep within the center of your brain, and the hippocampal formations, which are located within the temporal lobes of your brain.

Personal Protective Equipment
Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to the respiratory equipment, garments, and barrier materials used to protect rescuers and medical personnel from exposure to biological, chemical, and radioactive hazards. The goal of personal protective equipment is to prevent the transfer of hazardous material from victims or the environment to rescue or health care workers. Different types of PPE may be used depending on the hazard present. The types of hazards addressed here include biological warfare agents (BWAs), chemical warfare agents (CWAs), and radioactive agents. The most common routes of exposure to these hazards include inhalation (breathing, from the air), skin contact, and ingestion (eating or drinking). The use of personal protective equipment by the general public for protection against chemical and biological agents is controversial. Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) does not recommend that the public purchase respiratory protective equipment (gas masks) for several reasons.

Japanese encephalitis
Japanese encephalitis is a viral disease spread by mosquito bites. In most cases the illness is mild, with symptoms such as headaches and fever. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), at least 50,000 people in Asia develop visible symptoms of infection each year, and up to 60% of them develop serious inflammation of the brain, which can lead to permanent brain damage or death. Travellers are very rarely affected. The American Center for Disease Control estimates the risk for travellers to be less than one per million.
