Ebola Virus Disease

Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a serious and sometimes fatal illness that is caused by the Ebola virus. The disease was first identified in 1976 and is found in several African countries. The virus is spread through close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, such as blood, sweat, vomit, feces, urine, semen, or breast milk. The Ebola virus can also be spread through contact with objects that have been contaminated with the virus, such as needles and syringes.

Symptoms of Ebola can appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to the virus and include fever, headache, muscle pain, and a sore throat. As the illness progresses, patients may experience diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In severe cases, patients may also experience internal and external bleeding. The Ebola virus is highly contagious and can be fatal in a matter of days. There is currently no cure for Ebola, but early detection and treatment can improve the chances of survival. Prevention measures include avoiding close contact with infected individuals and practicing good hygiene, such as washing hands frequently and avoiding contact with contaminated surfaces.
