Ebola

Post  rosim. on Wed Oct 22, 2014 5:01 pm

Ebola is a disease of humans and other living things caused by Ebola viruses. Signs and symptoms typically start between two days and three weeks after having the virus. Some of the symptoms are with a fever, sore throat, muscle pain and headaches. Then, vomiting, diarrhea and rash usually follow, along with decreased function of the liver and kidneys. At this time, some people begin to bleed both internally and externally. if death occurs, it is in about six to sixteen days after symptoms appear which is due to low blood pressure from fluid loss.
It happens when the virus has contact with blood or other body fluids of an infected human or other animal. This may also occur by direct contact with a recently contaminated item. Spread through the air has not been documented in the natural environment. Fruit bats are believed to be the normal carrier in nature, able to spread the virus without being affected. Humans become infected by contact with the bats or a living or dead animal that has been infected by the fruit bats.

Ok, you just scared me with all this information about this sickness, but luckily Dominican Republic is suppose to be far away from being contaminated with Ebola. It is a very bad disease to have, especially if you could die in just a couple of days. I wish for no one to get this because it sounds awful. Shocked

Wow, this is very interesting Rosi, good job! Its a good thing that the Dominican Republic is very far away from were Ebola is. This is a very bad disease to have. I think that people should find a cure for this disease.

Good topic! That's such an interesting information. I've heard about ebola before, but i didn't know that you can die from it that fast. I've heard that it's a very common decease in Africa. Do scientists know how to cure this disease or at least delay the death?

Ebola...

Great work Rosi! My conclusion is that Ebola is a virus we still don’t have a cure for and people all around us are dying because of it and we don’t know what to do about it. Ebola started and originated from Africa and is slowly spreading worldwide. Some people have reported that Ebola is slowly getting closer to the Dominican Republic. This is not a good thing… hopefully we will find a cure!
