Ebola. The disease that has the entire world terrified.

There are currently five identified strains of Ebola, but the one currently infecting thousands of people is known as the Zaire strain.

The Zaire strain of Ebola’s symptoms first present similarly to the flu.

Preliminary symptoms include fever, muscle pain, headache, and sore throat. The virus will incubate inside a person after symptoms are shown for 2 to 21 days.

As Ebola progresses, symptoms will graduate to vomiting, diarrhea, and kidney and liver failure.

Ebola will also cause a rash. This is not just any rash, however.

The virus hitches on to the cells in the body that fight infections, and attacks every organ at once.

As each cell is destroyed, a particle explosion occurs, creating an inflammatory reaction.

This is what causes the early flu- like symptoms. But it also causes the rash.

An Ebola rash is reddish because the virus causes abnormal clotting in the blood vessels–causing you to bleed into your skin.

This also leads to bleeding from the mouth, eyes and ears.

But don’t worry. Ebola has not been proven to travel through the air. The virus travels through direct contact with the infected person or animal’s bodily fluids.

So as long as you keep direct contact with the infected to a minimum–

And make sure to thoroughly wash up and keep yourself clean–you should be fine.

Besides, even if you do contract Ebola, there are options.

Treatments that have been used so far include immune and drug therapies, blood donations, and supportive care and/or rehydration with intravenous fluids.

Beyond that, an Ebola vaccine developed at the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has begun trials in Africa. It won’t be widely available for some time, but the end of Ebola is clearly on the horizon.

For now, though, stay sanitary.
