Ebola virus is serious!!

If you see any of these signs let us know

How does the virus come into play

It attaches itself to cell and injects its DNA genetic material into the cell as it then causes the cell to sicken as it replicates and multiplies

The pathogfen itself

Ebolaviruses contain single-stranded, non-infectious RNA genomes. Ebolavirusgenomes contain seven genes including 3'-UTR-NP-VP35-VP40-GP-VP30-VP24-L-5'-UTR. The genomes of the five different ebolaviruses (BDBV, EBOV, RESTV, SUDV and TAFV) differ in sequence and the number and location of gene overlaps

History of the virus itself

The disease was first identified in 1976 in two simultaneous outbreaks, one in Nzara, and the other in Yambuku, a village near the Ebola River from which the disease takes its name. EVD outbreaks occur intermittently in tropical regions of sub-Saharan Africa. Between 1976 and 2013, the World Health Organization reports a total of 24 outbreaks involving 1,716 cases

How is it spread

It is nor airborne or non contagious. It is in fact spread through bodily fluids

Treatments and such

There is not yet a cure to treat it but

Water treatment is given in water rehabilitation and such where they give the patient slightly sweet and salter water.

It is very important that they be cautious though as it it passed through bodily fluids. It is important that the patient stays hydrated at they are drained of their hydration through loss of fluid in the body
