This paper studies the Ebola virus, its history, symptoms and treatment. The author explains that the virus is only thirty years old and no one is able to determine its origins. Since there is no vaccine, the paper concentrates on treatment research and efforts to contain the virus.

From the Paper:

"Throughout history, the cause of most deaths among humankind has been infectious viruses. There is no more horrific and lethal infectious virus than Ebola. The Ebola virus has an extremely high lethality rate, killing approximately ninety percent of those people that become infected. To make matters worse, there is no treatment or vaccine to counter the effects of the virus. This research paper will explore the Ebola virus in three segments: history of the Ebola virus, symptoms of the Ebola virus and the treatment/containment of the Ebola virus."
