WHO-Ebola Virus Signs & Symptoms are Often Deadly

Diseases - United States (on September 22, 2014 11:53 AM)

Ebola virus outbreaks are deadly, Ebola virus disease (EVD) is identified as Ebola hemorrhagic fever. Severe out breaks are recorded in the history countries such as South Africa but there are no threating signs of Ebla infection in United States, infect Ebola is condition of severe fever which causes the immense bleeding inner side & outer side to body.


 

Usually virus binge via body and completely hurt the immune system, organs of body and drop the levels of body cells to uncontrollable flow of blood. Anyone who is affected with Ebola virus ultimately experience lives threating deadly results or 90 percent people recorded loss of life infect.

 

People ask what is Ebola disease, causes, symptoms and how it transmitted, this virus is transmitted in people from wild animals, anyone who carries Ebola virus can easily transfer virus from one human to another human but it is not like other contagious disease. 

 

EVD case fatality rate is 50% but it varies case to case ranging 25% to 90% in recorded past outbreaks, fist outbreak was seen in distant rural areas of central South Africa, if community is united and committed collectively to control the health issues will greatly help to reduce the outbreaks in numbers.

Ebola can also diagnose from blood test, if Ebola test diagnose positive then you’ll be immediately separated from public to prevent the risk of Ebola virus to other humans.

 

Antibody capture enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)

Antigen capture discovery tests

Serum neutralization test

Inverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay

Electron microscopy

Virus separation by cell culture

 

Samples should be taken very carefully otherwise the extreme biohazard risk is present, for laboratory testing on non-inactivated samples should be directed under maximum biological control environments.

 

But health researchers are introducing many valuable treatments including blood products, improve immune therapies, drug companies are in process to develop the new vaccinations to counter the Ebola disease. Still there is no authentic vaccine is available and two vaccines are under testing process for human safety.  

 

Ebola Symptoms Can be Managed Somehow by Doctors 

Fluids and electrolytes
Oxygen
Blood pressure medication
Blood transfusions
Treatment for other infections

 

How to Prevent & Control Ebola

Still drugs vaccinations are underway, safety measures such as effective breakthrough control, intervention plans, case management, surveillance, healthcare service and community engagement is the key factor to prevent the Ebola infection.

 

1- You should avoid traveling those areas where possibilities of transmission of Ebola virus, in hospitals healthcare worker can prevent by following the medical health standards by wearing gloves, mask and goggles when they contact with infected Ebola virus human. 

 

2- We can reduce the risk of Ebola virus to follow the stick guide lines when contact with wild animals, avoid to eat any foot bited from wild animals, treat animals by wearing gloves in hand or appropriate clothing arrangements. Animal meet should be cooked at high temperature before eating.   

 

3- Safety measures should be taken while contacting with human infected with Ebola disease, importantly don’t touch body fluid, gloves and personal measures must take when taking care of infected person.  

 

Ebola Virus Background & Facts

Till now five type of Ebola viruses are identified, four can infect the human, fist Ebola virus symptoms was appear in human in the year 1976 outbreak in South Africa and populate its name by Ebola River near by the village where first patient was infected by this disease.
