- fatigue, malaise, and weakness

- joint and muscle pain
- nausea and vomiting.
- stomach pain and loss of appetite
- cough, sore throat, and difficulty swallowing
- chest pain
- breathing problems."
"It is much easier to control Ebola infections in isolated villages."
"We also need to provide more personal protective equipment for health care workers and those who are infected."
"International and national health officials trying to track the epidemic have noticed an unexpected pattern: There are far fewer people being treated for Ebola than anticipated."
“The numbers are decreasing, but we don’t know why”
