From the symptoms of a common cold to bleeding out the ears and eyes: What happens when you are infected with the Ebola virus?


Quote:
  • The first symptoms include a fever, headache and sore throat
  • Within days as the Ebola virus attacks the immune system, chronic abdominal pain, muscle aches, vomiting and diarrhoea take hold
  • The virus pierces blood vessels causing bleeding from the eyes, ears, mouth and other orifices
  • The whites of the eyes turn red and blood blisters form under the skin
  • Ebola is highly-infectious and has a death rate of up to 90 per cent
  • So far, 672 lives have been lost to the disease during this outbreak
  • The virus has spread from Guinea to Sierra Leone and Liberia
  • And on Friday the first victim was declared dead in Nigeria
