Ebola virus disease | WikiWand


From Wikipedia:  ‟”There is no specific treatment for the virus. Efforts to help persons who are infected include giving them either 

oral rehydration therapyor intravenous fluids.[1] The disease has a high mortality rate: often between 50% and 90% of those who are infected with the virus.[1][2] The disease was first identified in the Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It typically occurs in outbreaks in tropical regions ofSub-Saharan Africa.[1] Between 1976, when it was first identified, through 2013, fewer than 1,000 people a year have been infected.[1][3]The largest outbreak to date is the ongoing 2014 West Africa Ebola outbreak, which is affecting Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.[4] As of July 2014 more than 1320 cases have occurred.[4] Efforts are ongoing to develop a vaccine; however, none exists as of 2014.[1]
