Ebola and Zika Viral Infections Prevention and Control

Ebola viral infection is caused by virus transmitted through body fluids and through air. It occurs rarely but it is very deadly which results in death and outbreak. Ebola virus disease symptoms are very severe which appears in 2-3 days. Ebola primary symptoms include fever, sore throat, muscular pain and headaches then followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rash, decreased function of the liver and kidneys then loss of blood internally and externally finally leading to low blood pressure and fluid loss resulting in death.  Zika viral infection is caused by a virus transmitted primarily by aedes mosquitoes. People with zika virus disease can have symptoms including mild fever, skin rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain and malaise or headache.

Ebola is a deadly infection which does not have any treatment and any vaccine ultimately leading to an increase in the mortality rate. It is an infectious and fatal disease which causes fever and severe internal bleeding, spread through contact with infected body fluids by a filovirus (ebola virus) whose normal host species still remained unknown. Zika infection is spread mostly by the bite of an infected aedes species mosquito (ae. aegypti and ae. albopictus) and this mosquito is also responsible for the transmission of dengue and chikungunya. These mosquitoes are aggressive daytime biters and they can also bite at night. Zika can be passed from a pregnant woman to her foetus. Infection during pregnancy can cause certain birth defects. There is no vaccine or medicine for zika.
