Because the natural reservoir of Ebola virus has not yet been identified, it is not known how the virus first appears in a human at the start of an outbreak. However, researchers believe that the first patient becomes infected through contact with an infected animal, such as a fruit bat or nonhuman primate. Ebola is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or unprotected mucous membranes in, for example, the eyes, nose, or mouth
Ebola is not spread through the air or by water, or in general, by food. However, in Africa, Ebola may be spread as a result of handling “bushmeat” (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats. There is no evidence that mosquitos or other insects can transmit Ebola virus. Only a few species of mammals (for example, humans, bats, monkeys, and apes) have shown the ability to become infected with and spread Ebola virus.
Ebola has spread from Africa then it went all around the world.
These are the symptoms for catching ebola
- Severe headache
- Muscle pain
- Abdominal (stomach) pain
- Unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising)
this is a pandemic outbreak because it is global. it spread all around the world the reason why it spread is because Africa does not drink clean water and they do not vaccinate they kids and then it spreads. when people dont take care of their planet and they kids that how people get sick. Ebola has caused many of deaths around the world.
about ebloa country is that they do not have enough money to drink clean water.. or make sure their kids are not getting every kid sick so they should give out shots and stuff to cure the sickness. people all around the world should help out Africa because we all know that Africa needs helps.
