Ebola virus the Forrest Deadly Virus

EVD outbreaks have a case fatality rate of up to 90%.
kahit Doctor at Nurse namamatay..
Symptoms typically start two days to three weeks after contracting the virus, with a fever, sore throat, muscle pains, and headaches. Typically nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea follow, along with decreased functioning of the liver and kidneys. At this point, some people begin to have bleeding problems


Alam nyo ba ang Ebola Virus ay pinangalanan sa isang River sa Africa kung saan eto ay nag simula at natuklasan sa Zaire (Now ay tinatawag nang Congo) noong 1976  at kumalat sa ibang area na malapit sa ilog Ebola . Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) unang tawag kasi nilalagnat muna ang unang sintomas tapos kalaunan naging  Ebola virus disease (EVD)

Sa ngayon mukhang may bagong Kamag anak yung si Ebola 
Uri ng Ebola  Filoviridae viral family of RNA viruses  katangian neto ay mahaba at payat.


Ang tagal na no 1976 ? at wala pang Vaccines  dahil walang interesadong kompanya na gusto gumawa ng gamot dahil daw isolated case lang yung sa mga Rain Forrest or Tropical Region example. Subalit ang mga Scientist at doktor sa ibat ibang bansa nag susumikap makatuklas ng pang lunas sa nakakamata na Virus.

Ebola disease—also called Ebola hemorrhagic fever or Ebola fever—is a rare and often fatal illness that humans and nonhuman primates (such as monkeys and gorillas) can contract.

Sinasabing sa Fruit bat  daw nag mula ang Virus na eto ang natural host di siya na iinfect at nasasalin sa pamamagitan body fluids  tulad ng laway  dugo sipon or sariwang karne. (bakit body fluids? review ko noong high school dead organism sila pag walang host ) at sa Tao at lahi ng Ungoy lang eto nakakamatay.



ALAM NYO BA ?
Crab-eating macque that were imported from the Philippines to Reston, Virginia in 1989 were found to have a virus similar to Ebola.
(Famliar ba sa isang pelikula ) Pero Good News Safe naman yung EBOLA galing sa Pinas hindi eto lumilikha ng sakit.

Yung unang  Experiment nila nag salin ng dugo  ng may common cold dahil meron natural na taglay na antibodies . sa Isang Nurse na nahawaan ng Virus. Kinontrahan eto ng Belgium Doktara.. pero iginiit ng Nigerian Doktor  na mas maganda mag try ng bago paraan at pumayag at pumirma  naman yung Nurse na i try sa kana yung experiment.. at gumaling naman siya.. at nag ry pa sila ulit ng 8 walong pasiyente  ,  isa sa walong pasiyente  lang ang binawian ng buhay.. 

There are five subtypes of Ebola virus name by where they Found:
  • Ebola-Zaire
  • Ebola-Sudan
  • Ebola-Ivory Coast
  • Ebola-Bundibugyo
  • Ebola-Reston
 All of these subtypes are found in Africa, except for Ebola-Reston, which is found in the Philippines. The Ebola-Reston virus is also the only subtype that will not cause illness in humans—it only affects animals.


Zaire Ebola virus has one of the highest fatality rates of any pathogenic virus affecting humans. In the 1976 outbreak, it killed 88 percent of patients, 81 percent in 1995, 73 percent in 1996, 80 percent in 2001-2002, and 90 percent in 2003, although none of these outbreaks were as large as the original. 

Sudan Ebola virus has a lower, yet still very dangerous, fatality rate of 53 percent in 1976, 65 percent in 1979, 53 percent in the over 400 patients infected in 2000, and 41 percent in 2004. It is clear the Sudan Ebola virus, although not as fatal as the Zaire strain, is still very lethal.

Ivory Coast Ebola virus was first discovered in 1994 when a scientist conducting autopsies on chimpanzees contracted Ebola hemorrhagic fever. This strain found was different than the Zaire or Sudan strains. However, this has been the only case of Ivory Coast Ebola known to have occurred in humans.

Most Ebola virus outbreaks have originated in Africa and have traveled only to other countries through shipment of non-human primates or through accidental contamination in testing facilities. Crab-eating macque that were imported from the Philippines to Reston, Virginia in 1989 were found to have a virus similar to Ebola. Over 150 animal handlers were all tested for Ebola and only 6 were found to have developed antibodies to it, none of which actually developed Ebola hemorrhagic fever. The Center for Disease Control concluded that this strain had a low infection rate for humans and it was later classified as its own strain named Reston Ebola virus.

The largest outbreak to date is the ongoing 2014 West Africa Ebola outbreak, which is affecting Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and likely Nigeria.As of July 2014 more than 1320 cases have been ididentified. Efforts are ongoing to develop a vaccine; however, none yet exists.
