Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a deadly illness characterized by fever, fatigue, muscle pain, headache, and sore throat at the initial stages, followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, and internal and external bleeding at the later stages.
The virus spreads only through blood and other bodily fluids.
EVD was first identified in 1976, and the recent outbreak of the disease in parts of Africa has triggered a global concern.
Unfortunately, the disease has hit some of the poorest countries in Africa that have low healthcare facilities, causing their economies to slump further.
A total of cases of EVD were recorded in 2014, spanning a period of months.
The West African nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia constitute the epicenter of the current epidemic, accounting for % of the recorded cases, with Nigeria, Mali, the United States, the United Kingdom, Senegal, and Spain accounting for the rest.
