What is viral haemorrhagic fever?

Famous quotes containing the word fever:

    Y’know Pete, back where I come from folks call that love stuff “quick poison” or “slow poison.” If it’s quick poison it hurts you all over real bad like a shock of electricity. But if it’s slow poison, well, it’s like a fever that aches in your bones for a thousand years.
    Dalton Trumbo (1905–1976)
