Ebola
Ebola has reached the United States with the first person being diagnosed in Dallas after returning from a trip to Liberia. This patient died and since new cases have begun trickling in and 1000s of people are under a watch due to poor decision making with the first patient. Will we see a pandemic outbreak of the virus in the USA? According to Wikipedia, Ebola virus disease (EVD), Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) or simply Ebola is a disease of humans and other mammals caused by an ebolavirus. Signs and symptoms typically start between two days and three weeks after contracting the virus, with a fever, sore throat, muscle pain and headaches. Then, vomiting, diarrhea and rash usually follows, along with decreased function of the liver and kidneys. Around this time, infected people may begin to bleed both within the body and externally. Death, if it occurs, is typically six to sixteen days after symptoms appear and is often due to low blood pressure from fluid loss.
