About Ebola...

I actually hoped i could escape writing about this till it fades away but it looks like it isn't about to go away soon. 

What is it?
I know that it is a very scary disease. The worst I've heard of so far in my life.
It is deadly, it is contagious and it is untreatable(for now).

Few facts on ebola fever. 
Ebola is what scientists call a haemorraghic fever - it operates by making its victims bleed from almost anywhere on their body. Usually, victims bleed to death from Ebola. 

Ebola is highly contagious; being transmitted via contact with body fluids such as blood, saliva, semen or body discharges.

About 90% of people that catch Ebola will die from it. It's one of the deadliest diseases in the world, killing in a few weeks. 

This is the sad part - Ebola has no known treatment or cure. Victims are usually treated for symptoms with the faint hope that they recover. 

Symptoms of Ebola fever:
Stomach ache
Joint and muscle ache
Lack of appetite

How do i protect myself?
Wash your hands with soap
Dont eat suya or bush meat
Disinfect your surroundings
Fumigate if you have pests

What else can i do?
Spread the word!!!

May God in His infinite mercy protect us all from this disease.

  1. Mehn I'm not even sure bout all I hear/read anymore.... It's just sickening that this disease keeps taking lives almost everyday...*shrugs*

  2. At this stage I think it's only God that can protect somebody. When you consider Nigeria and our population,the opportunities for the disease to spread is astounding.
    A lot of people have poor hygiene.A sick woman will still be selling tomatoes sneezing and coughing. There's just no way to avoid contact with people.
    God help us. i hope it's contained as quickly as possible.
