Gustave Flaubert lived in this house when he wrote his historical novel Salammbô. This 19th century house, in the Carthage Punic Harbor, seems now abandoned.
The novel Salammbô is set in Punic Carthage during the 3rd century BC and tells the mercenary revolt which took place shortly after the first punic war between Rome and Carthage.

This is the most realistic rendering of Ebola virus. It takes Ebola virus only 12 days to get rid of its victim right after the appearance of the first symptoms. EV disease outbreaks have a case fatality rate of up to 90%. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission. Fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family are considered to be the natural host of the Ebola virus.
