The disease caused by the Ebola virus,
known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a severe and frequently fatal disease. The virus transmits to people from wild animals and spreads from person to person.
The incubation period is from 2 to 21 days.
People are not contagious before the symptoms appear. The Ebola fever begins abruptly with a rapid rise in temperature (up to 40 degrees). There is also a strong headache, muscle pain, and weakness. In addition, patients complain about a strong dryness in the throat accompanied by a dry cough and a chest pain. From the first days of the disease, a patient’s face looks like a mask with sunken eyes.
