    b.Bleeding          

    Internal and external bleeding may occur.This occurs after them first symptoms.Bleeding from mucous membranes or from sites of needle puncture has been reported.This may cause haematemesis,haemoptysis or blood in stool.Bleeding into the whites of the eyes may occur.Bleeding into the skin may create petechiae,purpura,ecchymoses or hematomas.Heavy bleeding is uncommon;if it occurs,it is usually in the gastrointestinal tract.           c.Recovery and death

Recovery may begin between 7and14 day after first symptoms.Death,if it occurs,follows typically 6 to 16 days from first symptoms and is often due to hypovolemia.People are often in a coma near the end of life. Those who survive often have ongoing muscular and joint pain,hepatitis,decreased hearing,and may have continued tiredness,continued weakness,decreased appetite,and difficulty returning to pre-illness weight.           Survivors develop immunoglobulin against Ebola that last at least 10 year,but it is unclear whether they are immune to additional infection.

Hey @Perpetual Mugambi (SWEETWATERS)

A really informative post! This had quite the world wide coverage when this broke out a couple years ago. While the big buzz has died down, this is still a relevant matter as all other medical symptom and issues. It was really interesting to read more about it and know more as I didn't look into it that much at the time. Very interesting! 

I hope these website homepages could help!

Hey @Perpetual Mugambi (SWEETWATERS)!

I really enjoyed reading your post! Personally, I'm very interested in medicine so I thought your post was super interesting! I also thought that the way you organized your post was very nice. Maybe you could also look into treatment options for your next round of research.

Good luck and great job!

Hi Perpetual!

Your research is amazing! Good work on making it very detailed. Today, Ebola has disappeared from the headlines, but I believe we should not forget how such a long and deadly attack of virus it was. I remember watching the news and feeling devastated that so many people were suffering from something that was so hard to contain. As a result, I'm glad you're bringing it back into highlight. Ebola continues to be an unpredictable and devastating opponent that needs human and financial resources. There were thousands of people were killed. Even more were effected during the epidemic. As you mentioned, Ebola survivors continue to suffer even after they've been cured. A lot of people don't necessarily recognize that they're still going through pain. Maybe you could look into how scientists are examining the long-term effects, causes, and if Ebola is contagious. I also suggest that you could look into previous large outbreaks of viruses and how it was confronted back then. For your future research, you may also want to look into the steps we can take to prevent there being another large outbreak of any virus.
