Ebola virus (Hemorrhagic fever)

The Ebola virus attacks immune cells and can cause the immune system to run out of control and release a storm of inflammatory molecules which cause tiny blood vessels to burst and this lowers the blood pressure and leads to organs failure.

Ebola gets its name from the Ebola river which is near one of the villages in the Democratic Republic of Congo where the disease first appeared..

We get infection only by direct contact with the infected person  and not by  air ,water etc.


Fever , headache, diarrhea, stomach pain , lack of appetite, severe weight loss, pain in joint and muscles, internal bleeding .

In severe cases bleeding occurs from eyes, ears, nose because this virus lowers the quantity of blood clotting cells .

No vaccine is available for this
