Transcript of Ebola

Ebola. Order: Mononegavirales
Family: Filoviridae
Genus: Ebolavirus Virus classification The Story Of Margret:
The Ebola Incident Margret had been rushed to the Ebola's symptoms resembles malaria, and subsequent patients received quinine when the first documented case of Ebola took place. after her mother had said she had the symptoms of Malaria. The first outbreak happened on 26 August 1976 in Yambuku. Mabalo Lokela, a 44-year-old schoolteacher, was the first to have reported her case. There are many different types of Ebola in the world.
Such as.... Zaire virus (ZEBOV) The Zaire virus, perviously named Zaire Ebola Virus, has the highest case of fatality rates, up to 90% in some epidemics. An average case of the Zaire virus' fatality rate is approximately 83% over 27 years. There have been more outbreaks of Zaire ebolavirus than any other species of Ebola. Sudan ebolavirus (SEBOV) This form of the Ebola virus was the second species of Ebola emerging concurrently with the Zaire virus. It was believed to have originated from cotton factory workers in Nzara, Sudan. The first case was reported as a worker had been exposed to a potential natural reservoir. Pathogenesis Of The... Endothelial cells,
mononuclear phagocytes,
and hepatocytes are said to be the main targets of infection. The endothelium is the thin layer of cells that line the interior surface of blood vessels.
They form an interface between circulating blood cells in the lumen and the rest of the vessel wall. Phagocytes are the white blood cells that protect our body by ingesting (phagocytosing) harmful foreign particles, bacteria, and dead or dying cells. Endothelial Cells. MoNONUCLEAR pHAGOCYTES. Hepatocyte A hepatocyte is a cell of the main tissue of the liver. These are the areas in attack when ther pathogens of Ebola enter our bodies. What happened to Margret's body? In the early stages, Ebola may not be highly contagious. Contact with someone in the early stages, may not even transmit the disease. So as margret and her mother made their way to the... Her mother was safe of the death-threatening virus. But on the way there..Margret's body was going through many things. The virus can get inside the body from skin abrasions... or unclean and unsanitized injection needles... and other cases were caused of the lack of barrier nursing, meaning the cleanliness in the practice of medicine. and they can also enter your body from uneven surfaces and opening holes that lead inside your body. But, by the time Margret had reached the hospital, her body had already entered the secondary stage of Ebola virus. Her lungs, liver, and spleen were all under attack. The Ebola travelled through the circulatory system and entered these organs. Her body entered the 3rd stage, which meant very little living conditins. she ended up lookin like this... i know...tell me about it... GROSS. so keep away from ebola like you would keep away from any std's.
