Almost thirty years ago Ebola climbed out of its unknown hiding place and caused the death of hundreds of people Fear gripped the victims faces and uncertainty tortured their minds The people of Zaire waited outside clinics churches and in their homes for a treatment of the horrible disease but there was no cure They were forced to watch people die hoping that they would be saved from the violent death of the Ebola virus Since the first outbreak researchers have searched for the origin and cure of the virus Scientist have carried out numerous studies and investigations but no one has been able to find the right explanations Prevention of a world wide outbreak lies in knowing what the virus is capable of doing how Ebola victims can be properly treated and by performing prompt action to isolate the virus before it has dispersed The Ebola virus is a member of a family of RNA viruses know as filoviruses Filoviruses are the viruses responsible for causing viral hemorrhagic fevers All forms of virus of viral hemorrhagic fever begin with fever and muscle aches Ebola Zaire attacks every organ and tissue in the human body except skeletal muscle and bone It is a perfect parasite because it transforms virtually every part of the body into a digested slime of virus particles The mysterious proteins that make up the Ebola-virus particle work as a relentless machine a molecular shark and they consume the body as the virus makes copies of itself Your skin develops blood clots under the skin Your organs turn to mush and the underlayers of your skin die and liquefy The skin bubbles up to form a blood rash Your mouth bleeds and you bleed around your teeth and you may have hemorrhages from the salivary glands Every opening in your body no matter how small excretes blood The surface of the tongue turn s brilliant red and then falls off It
