Ebola virus disease, or EVD, is a deadly disease with occasional outbreaks that occur mostly on the African continent. EVD most commonly affects people and nonhuman primates, such as monkeys, gorillas, and chimpanzees. It is caused by an infection with a group of viruses within the genus Ebolavirus.
The Ebola virus is a deadly virus that causes hemorrhagic fever in humans and other primates. Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after contact with the virus, with an average of 8 to 10 days. The course of the illness typically progresses from “dry” symptoms initially, such as fever, aches and pains, and fatigue, and then progresses to “wet” symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting as the person becomes sicker.
