    • The Most Influential Parasite in History
      by Erin McCarthy – September 24, 2018


      Theodore Roosevelt’s fever was approaching 104 degrees, and he was delirious. “In Xanadu did Kubla Khan / A stately pleasure dome decree:” he mumbled. “Where Alph, the sacred river ran / Through caverns measureless to man / Down to a sunless sea.” Then he began again: “In Xanadu did Kubla Khan …”

      The situation was dire. It was early 1914, and the 55-year-old former president—accompanied by his son, Kermit, naturalist George Cherrie, expedition co-commander Colonel Cândido Rondon, and a small team of other Brazilians—was deep in the Brazilian rainforest, attempting to navigate the 950-mile-long Rio da Dúvida, the River of Doubt (and, these days, the Roosevelt River). They were all in rough shape—dirty, malnourished, bug-bitten—but none more so than Roosevelt: He’d been hobbling along since he’d bashed his leg against a rock a few days earlier, and it was getting infected; now, the fever.

      As Roosevelt recited poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s lines over, and over, and over, a storm thrashed the camp. “[F]or a few moments the stars would be shining, and then the sky would cloud over and the rain would fall in torrents, shutting out sky and trees and river,” Kermit wrote. Roosevelt, on a cot, was shivering violently, wracked with chills.

      He was given quinine orally, to no avail; it was then injected into his gut. By morning, he had rallied. Still, he was weak, and urged the men to leave him behind. But they refused, and their difficult journey over two sections of rapids continued as Roosevelt’s fever rose again. “There were … a good many mornings when I looked at Colonel Roosevelt and said to myself, ‘he won’t be with us tonight,’” Cherrie would later say. “And I would say the same in the evening, ‘he can’t possibly live until morning.’”

      Roosevelt had suffered from recurring bouts of what he called Cuban fever since his days as a Rough Rider during the Spanish-American War. But what he was actually suffering from—and would ultimately survive when he emerged from the Brazilian rainforest—was malaria.

  2. “Roosevelt’s African Trip” 1909
    By Frederick William Unger

    Chapter XXXVI – Stanley’s Search for Livingstone – pg. 337
    Page 340 – Excerpt

    The caravans had been twenty-nine days on the march, and they had covered 119 miles since leaving Bagamoyo. When encamped a day’s march from Simbanwenni, Stanley experienced his first attack of the mukunguru or fever of East Africa. He was destined to have no less than twenty-three of such attacks before regaining the shores of the Indian ocean.

    The remedy, applied for three morning in succession after the attack, was a quantum of 15 grains of quinine, taken in three doses of five grains each, every other hour from dawn to meridian. I may add that this treatment was perfectly successful in his case and in all others which occurred in the camp.

    An American journalist goes to Africa to find a lost Victorian explorer.

  3. I recently posted a link here in which someone was praising how the indigenous people of Brazil were innovating cures for COVID from their native remedies. Ironic how a leftist praises someone resourceful presumably using quinine, but the rest of us are denigrated.
