The diffusion of the Ebola virus and various methods of its prevention in healthy people
Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a rare but severe, often fatal illness in humans. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
Symptom of Ebola
The initial symptoms of Ebola can include a sudden fever, intense weakness, muscle pain and a sore throat, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). And that is just the beginning: subsequent stages are vomiting, diarrhea and in some cases both internal and external bleeding.
As there is no cure for Ebola we need to be very careful about what we go, what we are eating to protect yourself.
In order to protect yourself from Ebola what you can do is avoid areas of known outbreaks. One of the countries where Ebola is seen is Africa. So before travelling to Africa, find out current epidemics by checking the centers for diseases control and prevention websites. Also you can wash your hands frequently and eating bush meat. Furthermore you can avoid contact with infected people. In addition follow infection control procedures.
