Ebola Virus

The recent outbreak of Ebola virus disease in both developing and developed countries reminded us the great threat of emerging infectious diseases. Ebola viruses are highly communicable once early symptoms develop. The infected patients shed infectious viruses in all body secretions or fluids. If any individual comes in direct contact with any of these secretions it may cause virus transmission to them. The infection spreads by direct contact with blood and secretions, or the ones that remain on clothing, and by any equipments used to treat patients. There’s no cure for Ebola till date. Drugs like ZMapp and TKM-Ebola are being used for treatment. Specialists prescribe medicines such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) to reduce fever and pain. Treatment includes an experimental serum that destroys the infected cells.
