EBOLA VIRUS DISEASE

EBOLA VIRUS DISEASE:-

INTRODUCTION ;




SIGNE & SYMPTOMS

Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a severe disease that causes haemorrhagic fever in humans and animals. Diseases that cause haemorrhagic fevers, such as Ebola, are often fatal as they affect the body's vascular system (how blood moves through the body). This can lead to significant internal bleeding and organ failure.

The current outbreak of Ebola is in Central and West Africa. There have not been any cases of Ebola in Canada.

The Ebola virus can spread through:

contact with infected animals
contact with blood, body fluids or tissues of infected persons
contact with medical equipment, such as needles, contaminated with infected body fluids
Exposure can occur in health care settings when staff do not wear appropriate protective equipment, such as masks, gowns and gloves.

As long as precautions are taken, there is low risk of contracting EVD in a country where the disease is present.

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.
