Fourteenth century plague doctors who wore a bird-like mask were referred to as “beak doctors”.Straps held the beak in front of the doctor’s nose.The mask had glass openings for the eyes and a curved beak shaped like a bird’s. The mask had two small nose holes and was a type of respirator which contained aromatic items.
The beak could hold dried flowers (including roses and carnations), herbs (including mint), spices, camphor or a vinegar sponge.The purpose of the mask was to keep away bad smells, which were thought to be the principal cause of the disease in the miasma theory of infection, before it was disproved by germ theory.Doctors believed the herbs would counter the “evil” smells of the plague and prevent them from becoming infected.
The beak doctor costume worn by plague doctors had a wide brimmed leather hood to indicate their profession.They used wooden canes to point out areas needing attention and to examine patients without touching them.The canes were also used to keep people away,to remove clothing from plague victims without having to touch them, and to take a patient’s pulse.
Wearing these clothes actually helped to prevent getting infected by a diseased flea or a rat. Fleas couldn’t bite through the leather jacket and infected people couldn’t touch the doctor also because of his leather jacket.

The Teke Teke (also known as Tek-Tek) is about the ghost of a young woman, or school girl, who fell on a rail way line and was cut in half by the oncoming train. Now avengeful spirit, she carries a scythe or a saw and travels on either her hand or elbows, her dragging upper torso making a scratching or ‘teke teke’ sound. If she encounters anyone at night and the victim is not fast enough, she will slice them in half at the torso, mimicking her own disfigurement.
