Mosquito Mary!

Mary Mallon lived in the middle of nineteenth and twentieth centuries with a very peculiar strength (weakness?) -she was a powerful carrier of typhoid fever.

People in those days strongly believed that she was the cause of death of several typhoid-infected patients.

She was quarantined very often for fear of spreading the fever. However she managed to escape from the hospital where she was quarantined and joined work in the kitchen of the same hospital!

Her life appears to be as adventurous as that of the dreaded mosquito itself. She could dodge people as easily as the mosquito and escape quarantine easily.

She must have been a mosquito incarnation in short!
