History of Ebola Virus Disease
Imagine being isolated from your own family and feeling unsure as to weather or not you will ever see them again.The don’t want to go anywhere near you because you are a threat to their health, that’s what The Ebola Virus does to you. Ebola Virus Disease is a severe disease that causes internal bleeding and extremely high fever.In 1976 Ebola first emerged in Sudan and Zaire. The first outbreak of ebola infected over 284 people, with a mortality rate of 53%. A few months later, the second Ebola Virus emerged from Yambuku, Zaire. Ebola’s family tree was thought to have been extinct for over 23 million years, much longer than previously believed. Ebola is a very interesting disease to study due to the way it is transmitted and how it affects people of different ages.Ebola virus was first discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of congo by Boron Peter Karel Piot. The Ebola Virus probaly started with a single affected person in West Africa. (2013-2016)
The most outbreak of Ebola Virus disease mainly in countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. This quote shows the history of Ebola because it tells us how it started when it died and where. Some symptoms of the Ebola Virus are fever, severe headache, muscle pain, weakness, vomitting etc. The symptoms may appear from anywhere from 2-21 days after being in contact with the virus. EVD(Ebola Virus Disease) is a rare but severe and often deadly disease recovery from EVD depends on good supperative clinical care and the patients immune response. The symptoms are harmful and severe but we don’t know if it’s curable.Ebola then spreads through human-to-human transmission viadirect contact (through broken skin or mucus membranes) with the blood, secretions, organs or other body fluids. Scientist aren’t perfectly sure or not of how Ebola spreads and how the whole Ebola thing works but what they do know is most of the important stuff. If you are affrcted by Ebola it’s probaly because someone near you had it and you got inffected by it.
Mikey, Doerr 5th perid 10-4-18Ebola When living in or traveling to a region where Ebola virus is widespread, there are a number of ways to protect yourself and prevent the spread of EVD. Practicing good hand hygein is an effective method in preventing the spread of dangerous germs, like the Ebola virus. Proper hand hygiene means washing hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer etc. Ebola is a major risk of getting because if you get Ebola you have a chance of looing everything you love and might not be able to ever see the people you love or what you lover ever again. There really is no cure for the EVD but there are ways you can treat it like getting therapy to maintain oxygen levels, providing fluids and electrolytes, using medicine to support the blood preasure and treat anyother infections. There is currently no antiviral drug licensed by the US food and drug Administration. The EVD is a strange disease to study on and is crazy on how it works, it still is iinteresting but not as much because i know more about it now than i did before i rote this essay/typed. Ebola is very strange of how the disease works the cures and just everything about it.
