Like WildfireRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
This deadly 8-letter word can really "put people in a frenzy," and for very good reason. If you drop letter 1 and order the rest of the letters like so , then you get exactly what the word can do. So, if you are affected by it, you had better get a good , or you could be taking a very long !
HintThe title intimates that this is something that spreads very quickly... it is extremely widespread, as well.
DEM is a Greek root for people. A (PAN- [DEM] -IC) puts people (DEM) in a frenzy (PANIC).
 = CIDE MAN
Cide is a Latin root for kill. A pandemic "kills mankind."
And of course...if you contract the disease, you need a good  = MEDIC, or you may take a long  = NAP (death).
