We would like to share this piece of information that might help you identify an Ebola case. Below are the Signs and Symptoms of Ebola courtesy of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Symptoms of Ebola include fever (greater than 38.6°C or 101.5°F), severe headache, muscle pain, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal (stomach) pain and unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising).
Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to Ebola, but the average is 8 to 10 days.
Recovery from Ebola depends on good supportive clinical care and the patient’s immune response. People who recover from Ebola infection develop antibodies that last for at least 10 years.
Keep safe everyone!
