Ebola Virus formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans.

It is one of the most deadly disease in the world.

"It is a highly infectious virus that can kill up to 90% of the people, who catch it, causing terror among infected communities".

The WHO said preliminary tests on the Ebola virus in Guinea in March Suggested that the out break there was this strain, though that has not been confirmed.

EVD is a severe acute viral illness often characterized by the sudden onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is follwed by vomiting, diarrhoea, rash, impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases, both internal and externam bleeding. Laboratory findings include low white blood cell and platelet counts and elvated liver enzymes.

People are infectious as long as their blood and secretions contain the virus. Ebola virus was isolated from semen 61 days after onset of illness in a man who was infected in a laboratory.

The incubation period, that is the time interval from infection with the virus to onset of symptoms, is 2 to 21 dys.
