Symptoms of Ebola Infection
To prevent Ebola infection must be aware of the signals our bodies transmits. Therefore, high temperature, headache and sore throat are the first signs that Ebola virus enters into the body, attacking the immune system cells while leaving the impression that it is an ordinary cold. As the disease progresses, victims’ eyes turn red because small blood vessels burst, causing bleeding from the eyes, ears, mouth and other orifices. The virus destroys the same as those targeted cells by HIV, Ebola infection is even more aggressive by removing the cells from the immune system under formation.
