Transcript of EBOLA
As the virus spreads through the body, it damages the immune system and organs. Ultimately, it causes levels or blood-clotting cells to drop. This leads to severe, uncontrollable bleeding.
What is Ebola?
Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), Ebola Hemorrhagic fever (EHF), or simply Ebola is a disease of humans and other primates caused by and Ebolavirus.
What kind of sickness is Ebola?
Early on, Ebola can feel like the flu or other illnesses. symptoms show up 2 to 21 days after infection and usually include:
High Fever, Headache,
Joint and muscle aches, Sore throat, Weakness, Stomach pain, Lack of appetite.
As the disease gets worse, it causes bleeding inside the body as well as from the eyes, ears, and nose. Some people will vomit or cough up blood, have bloody diarrhea, and get a rash.
There is no cure for Ebola, though researchers are working on it. Treatment includes an experimental serum that destroys infected cells.
Doctors may manage symptoms of Ebola with:
Fluids and electrolytes, Oxygen, Blood pressure medication, Blood transfusions, Treatment for other infections.
The natural reservoir of Ebola is unknown. antibodies tothe virus have been found in the serum of domestic guinea pigs and wild rodents, with no relation to human transmission. serum antibodies and viral RNA have been identifiede in some bat species, suggesting bats may be a natural reservoir.
Ebola chain of infection
- Close person or body fluid contact with someone/ something infected by the Ebola virus.
Portal of exit
Person-to-person transmission occurs via close personal contact with an infected individual or their body fluids during the late stages of infection or after death. Humans may be infected by handling sick or dead non-human primates and are also at risk when handling the bodies of deceased humans in preparation for funerals.
Mode of Transmission
Ebolavirus is spread through close personal contact with someone/something's body fluids that are infected with ebola.
Portal of Entry
The only susceptible host for Ebola are humans and primates.
"New U.S. Ebola Case? Possible Patient Arrives at Hospital
An American doctor who may have been exposed to Ebola in Sierra Leone is starting experimental isolation at the government's top medical research lab."
- Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a disease caused by one of five different Ebola viruses
-The first human outbreaks occured in 1975.
-Ebola is extremely infectious but not extremely contagious.
-Ebola is not transmitted through the air.
-Humans can also be exposed to the virus, for example, by butchering infected animals.
