LYTIC CYCLE

Ebola uses the Lytic cycle to spread it self. The four steps in this cycle starts with penetration.


PENETRATION


Virus enters the cell and injects itself into the plasma membrane.


SYNTHESIS


Biosynthesis of nucleic acids needed for assembly of new viruses.


ASSEMBLY


Assembly of Nucleocapsid happens during this stage.


RELEASE


Mature viruses are released from the cell. Instead of lysing out, the viruses bubble out to gain an envelope. The bigger burst size, the even more viruses.

TREATMENT

Maintain your blood pressure and oxygen. Take medications if you need to control your fever. Also stop any secondary infections.

PREVENTION

Avoid major cities or countries with being known for people having Ebola. Practice good hygiene with body parts contacted with other people.
