Artificial intelligence is a modern tool for creative individuals. It can do what is impossible to create with human intelligence. With its help, we discovered how diseases would look if they were people.

To prepare the material, the following sources were used: the Instagram page of the medical community "Svij doc," the medical website "," the Public Health Center, and the website of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

What would diseases look like?

Artificial intelligence showed how common diseases like Covid-19, cystitis, chickenpox, and the flu would look if they were people.

Specifically, COVID-19 would be represented by a woman wearing a mask with mysterious hair.

Cystitis would be depicted by a man sitting on a chair. Overall, it looks very cunning, much like the disease itself.

Chickenpox is represented by a woman with a rash on her body, characterizing the disease.

The flu, a widespread illness in the cold season, is portrayed by a woman with a masked face, indicating the rapid spread of the viral infection.

Disease symptoms


Chickenpox runs in 4 periods: incubation, prodromal, rash period, and scabbing period.

The incubation period for chickenpox lasts from 13 to 17 days for those under 30 and 11 to 21 days for those over 30.

The incubation period may vary, depending on the body's readiness to fight the infection.

Symptoms of the disease appear approximately a day before the rash: fever, lower back pain, and headaches. In children, the prodromal period is often absent, and the appearance of the rash reveals the disease.

Rashes in most children occur without any disturbances in the general condition, and manifestations of fever coincide with the appearance of the rash. The rashes appear in waves in several stages. In adults, rashes are often more massive, and the temperature rises, accompanied by intense itching.


The flu has symptoms similar to other acute respiratory viral infections (ARVI) but is much more dangerous. Consult a doctor at the first signs. Self-treatment can be harmful to your health.

Clinical signs of the flu:

  • sudden onset
  • headache
  • muscle and joint aches
  • sore throat
  • body temperature rises to 38 °C and higher
  • cough
  • in some cases, vomiting and diarrhea

The flu virus is transmitted by airborne droplets, dust (virus particles are transmitted through the air from an infected person to a healthy one during talking, coughing, and sneezing), and through close contact - about 2 m.


Usually, the cause of cystitis is bacteria that enter the human body through the urethra. The most common causative agent is Escherichia coli. Its habitat is the rectum. It is also possible that other bacteria can cause the disease.

The signs of cystitis are difficult to notice because they manifest in an acute form and disrupt normal life. Symptoms of cystitis in women and men are similar and most often display as:

  • Frequent urination, sometimes within an hour. Usually, a person should empty the bladder 5-7 times a day
  • sharp pain pulling down the lower abdomen, general malaise, and sometimes an increase in temperature
  • always wanting to go to the toilet, occasionally unable to hold urine
  • sharp and intense pain when emptying the bladder
  • urine of cloudy color, blood may appear in it
  • painful sensations may return, turning into chronic cystitis


Vaccination helps minimize the risk of severe course and death from coronavirus disease, including from dangerous strains.

A mild course of the disease is characterized by:

  • Low-grade fever (up to 38 ° C), which is amenable to correction
  • malaise or nasal congestion
  • headache
  • muscle pain
  • cough without signs of respiratory failure (such as difficulty breathing, an increase in the frequency of respiratory movements)
  • gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea) without signs of dehydration
  • lack of changes in mental state (consciousness disorders, lethargy)
  • loss of smell or taste

Notably, the symptoms of a mild disease course do not mean the patient's condition will not worsen.
