Walking Dead Season 4 Bleeding eyes might be sign of Ebola or Marburg virus?
Most of you probably have seen The Walking Dead Season 4 premiere, “30 Days Without an Accident.” By now dozens of recaps are already on the internet, so I am not going into the full episode. What I thought was interesting, and was not mentioned a lot on other websites is the appearance of the red eyes/bleeding eyes zombies.
Lauren Cohan (Maggie) told us earlier this year in a interview that season 4 will have a big new threat for the survivors, “It’s not even the walkers, it’s not even other people, it’s a whole new threat.” Also according to series creator Robert Kirkman, this new threat “could be more deadly than the other two combined.” We probably have seen some first looks of this new threat. In the opening of the episode when Rick is gardening he at one moment looks at the fence where there are a lot of zombies, but the camera takes a close up of one particular zombie, the one with the red eyes.
Also During the episode we not only see the sick pig at the prison but we also see the sick boar in the woods (when Rick meets Clara). When Rick returned to the prison he finds out the pig is dead. And of course on of the biggest hints that something deadly is coming there way is the death of Patrick, who begins to feel ill mid episode and he tells Carol he feels like he has to throw up. At the end of the episode we see Patrick coughing a lot and probably is having a fever, because he heading to the showers to cool himself. When he dies and he comes back as a zombie he has the same red eyes/bleeding eyes like the zombie in the beginning of the episode.
The Walking Dead bleeding eye symptoms:
- Bleeding eyes (might be also bleeding nose?)
There are a lot of deceases that makes your eyes go bleeding, but most of them is just the normal everyday internal bleeding of the eyes. The only thing I could find that comes close to this are the signs and symptoms of hemorrhagic fevers caused by Ebola virus and the Marburg virus.Both have about the same signs and symptoms typically begin abruptly within five to 10 days of infection.
Early signs and symptoms of the Ebola virus and the Marburg virus include:
- Fever (check)
- Severe headache
- Joint and muscle aches
- Sore throat
Over time, symptoms become increasingly severe and may include:
- Nausea and vomiting (check)
- Diarrhea (may be bloody)
- Red eyes (check)
- Raised rash
- Chest pain and cough (check)
- Stomach pain
- Severe weight loss
- Bleeding from the nose, mouth, rectum, eyes and ears (check, although we haven’t had a close up of his rectum ;))
