Ebola

Another virus disease, like the COVD-19, Ebola is a rare ailment in people and nonhuman primates. Symptoms usually start within a maximum of three weeks of contracting the virus, and the common signs are fever, sore throat, muscular pain, and headaches. As the disease progresses in severity, one develops vomiting, diarrhea, rash, with eventually the liver and kidneys losing their capability to function in full capacity. It has a high fatality rate at an average of 50%. It spreads through direct contact of bodily fluids like saliva, mucus, vomit, feces, sweat, tears, breast milk, urine and semen. In 2014, Ebola, in the world's worst outbreak, killed more than 11,300 people, and recently took four lives in Congo. WHO said they are “very concerned about this new outbreak in Mbandaka.”
