Ebola

35.00

Ebola is a rare and deadly disease caused by infection with one of several Ebola virus strains.  It was first discovered near the Ebola River, in Zaire, 1976, and the Infectious Awareables™ artwork mirrors the microscopy of that strain.  The natural host remains unknown, but the disease it is likely animal-borne, and can spread through direct contact or droplets.  The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, with two cases imported to the U.S.  It remains a particularly high risk to healthcare workers who come in close contact with infected patients.

“EBOLA virus causes severe hemorrhaging and has an extremely high mortality rate.  The natural host is unclear, and vaccines remain elusive.  The 2014 Outbreak serves as warning that emergent diseases may no longer be limited in geography.”
