  4. I don’t think overdose had anything to do with it. It’s more likely that bringing down fever had much to do with the spread. Fever is a natural reaction of the body’s immune system mobilizing to kill the virus. Bringing down fever allows the virus to proliferate without opposition because the rest of the immune system is also crippled; fever is only the visible sign and symptom of the immune response.
    It’s also likely malnutrition had much to do with the spread and deadly results.
