Previously, the virus was known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, but nowadays it is more commonly called Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). The disease is caused by the five representatives of the genus Ebola virus. Each one can infect humans, however onlyBundibugyo Ebola virus, Zaire Ebola virus and Sudan Ebola virus species cause disease or death. The current outbreak is caused by the Zaire Ebola virus species, which is considered to be the most dangerous due to its 90 percent death rate.
The origin of the EVD remains a mystery. One theory suggests that dogs, bats and pigs could harbor the Ebola virus in their intestines. As a result, people who eat one of these animals could get infected. The first outbreak happened in 1976 in Yambuku, Democratic Republic of Congo, and in Nzara, Sudan, simultaneously. The outbreak in Yambuku was situated close to the Ebola River, which explains the name given to the virus.

Ebola is introduced into the human population
through close contact with the blood, secretions,
organs or other bodily fluids of infected animals.
In Africa, infection has been documented through
the handling of infected chimpanzees, gorillas,
fruit bats, monkeys, forest antelope and
porcupines found ill or dead or in the rainforest.
Ebola then spreads in the community through
human-to-human transmission, with infection
resulting from direct contact (through broken
skin or mucous membranes) with the blood,
secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of
infected people, and indirect contact with
environments contaminated with such fluids.
Burial ceremonies in which mourners have direct
contact with the body of the deceased person
can also play a role in the transmission of Ebola.
Men who have recovered from the disease can
still transmit the virus through their semen for up
to 7 weeks after recovery from illness.
Health-care workers have frequently been
infected while treating patients with suspected or
confirmed EVD. This has occurred through close
contact with patients when infection control
precautions are not strictly practiced.
Among workers in contact with monkeys or pigs
infected with Reston ebolavirus, several
infections have been documented in people who
were clinically asymptomatic. Thus, RESTV
appears less capable of causing disease in
humans than other Ebola species.
However, the only available evidence available
comes from healthy adult males. It would be
premature to extrapolate the health effects of the
virus to all population groups, such as immuno-
compromised persons, persons with underlying
medical conditions, pregnant women and
children. More studies of RESTV are needed
before definitive conclusions can be drawn about
the pathogenicity and virulence of this virus in

Ebola virus disease is a bad and dangerous disease originated frm liberia,it was first discovered in Nigeria 2014 when the ambassador of Liberia to Nigeria went back to his country and came back...he then had a serious disease,a severe illness,after the doctors treated him and it was later discovered that the patient had an ebola virus disease,even one of those doctors went home and kissed his wife and hugged his daughter,after some days it was later discovered that the doctor and his family are now ebola patient,and this disease spread faster than Hiv/AIDS even faster than Tuberculosis,pls my fellow Nigerians,my fellow Africans do not move with people anyhow or shake people any how and be beware of eating Bush meats and having contact with dogs,monkey e.t.c and wash ur hands,face or any open place in your body with Dettol before doing anything or before having contact with ur Family...pls be beware,EBOLA IS REAL...
