Q
Why do we fall ill?

Question:

Under which of the following conditions is a person most likely to fall sick?

(a) when she is recovering from malaria.

(b) when she has recovered from malaria and is taking care of someone suffering from chicken-pox.

(c) when she is on a four-day fast after recovering from malaria and is taking care of someone suffering from chicken-pox.

Why?

Answer:

A person is most likely to fall sick when she is on a four-day fast after recovering from malaria and is taking care of someone suffering from chicken-pox. This is because she is still in the recovery phase and is not completely disease-free. Her immunity will be low and she can get easily affected by other harmful microorganisms. Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease. So, because of her weak immunity, she can suffer from this disease while taking care of that person who is diagnosed with chicken pox.
