The World Health Organization says “drastic action is needed”. Possibly the proximity between the jungle is to be considered as an agravating factor for the actual Ebola epidemic, the specialists think. People traveling being infected also contributed to spread the virus. The good news is that a person isn’t contagious until is already showing symptoms. There is no cure or vaccine to treat Ebola but some good results are obtained if it’s treated early. Actually the death rate has dropped to roughly 60%. The incubation period is about 21 days. The common symptoms at first mimic the flu: headache, fever, fatigue. After, there are diarrhea and vomiting and finally patients  suffer internal and external hemorrhaging and many any die in an average of 10 days.
