Ebola is a dangerous disease that originated in western Africa in 1976. Experts believe that the first human cases of Ebola emerged due to contact with the secretions of organs, blood, or other bodily fluids of infected animals. This virus was discovered in people who worked with sick gorillas, chimpanzees, and forest antelopes, whether they were dead or alive.
The first symptoms victims had seemed mild at first, such as muscle pain, fever, chills, and headaches. However, after a while, these side effects become stronger and stronger, with victims experiencing internal bleeding. Ebola is contagious, and it quickly spreads through contact with bodily fluids of an infected patient or someone who has recently died from it.
The peak period of Ebola was between 2013 and early 2016, and a huge part of ending this deadly pandemic was vigorous methods of tracing and quarantining. There wasn’t a possibility of clinical testing during the time, so vaccines weren’t used a lot, but they have been used to treat smaller outbreaks of Ebola cases.
