Signs of rubella

Rubella is an acute viral infectious disease. Her symptoms were first described by the German physician F. Hoffmann in 1740, but the causes of the disease became known only in the 20th century, when rubella virus was isolated and studied in 1961.

What does hemoglobin mean for the body?
Hemoglobin is a component of red blood cell cells and is a protein containing iron. It is because of this component that our blood is colored red.

Each hemoglobin molecule contains four iron atoms. This iron has the property of easily binding to molecules of oxygen and carbon dioxide and just as easily give them.
