The appearance of this negative sense single stranded RNA (nonsegmented) virus is filamentous in structure(NIH, 2010)[8]. This Ebola was discovered in the Democratic Republic of Congo and is a species of the Genus ebolavirus. The Genus ebolavirus contains five different species. The five species are: Sudan ebolavirus (SEBOV), Reston ebolavirus (REBOV),Bundibugyo ebolavirus (BEBOV), Ivory Coast ebolavirus (CIEBOV), and Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV)(NIH, 2010)[9]. They were all discovered around 1976 with only one strain that is not pathegenic in humans which is the Reston ebolavirus. The filoviruses can cause up to a 90% mortality rate in humans as well(NIH, 2010)[10]. The Ebola is not considered to be living due to the fact that without a host the virus will die, although this topic is highly controversial.
