Ebola is a virus that causes an infectious illness. Signs and symptoms typically start between two days and three weeks after contracting the virus with a fever, sore throat, muscular pain, and headaches. Then, vomiting, diarrhea and rash usually follow, along with decreased function of the liver and kidneys. At this time some people begin to bleed both internally and externally. The disease has a high risk of death and is especially dangerous in poorer regions, as for example in Africa, where outbreaks of Ebola threaten the well-functioning of the society.
The last outbreak of Ebola in the 21st century is still very present in the mind of many people, but appropriate images are hard to find. Here on Colourbox.com you may find suitable pictures that respect the human rights of all individuals!
