Ebola Virus Disease Information
Ebola / Viral Haemorrhagic Fever in Perspective
What is a Viral Haemorrhagic Fever? Viral Haemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) refer to a group of illnesses that are caused by several distinct families of viruses. In general, the term “viral hemorrhagic fever” is used to describe a severe multisystem syndrome (multisystem in that multiple organ systems in the body are affected). Characteristically, the overall vascular system is damaged, and the body’s ability to regulate itself is impaired. These symptoms are often accompanied by hemorrhage (bleeding); however, the bleeding is itself rarely life-threatening. While some types of hemorrhagic fever viruses can cause relatively mild illnesses, many of these viruses cause severe, life-threatening disease.
Malaria, the Disease
Malaria is a parasitic infection of the health of red blood cells. It is acquired via the bite of female Anopheles mosquitoes. The ecology of the disease is complex, depending on factors such as altitude, climate, mosquito breeding sites and human behaviour for successful transmission of the disease in an area. There are four types of parasites namely vivax, malariae, ovale and Plasmodium Falciparum. Vivax, malariae and ovale can cause serious illness but seldom cause death in otherwise healthy patients. P. Falciparum on the other hand can cause cerebral malaria and ultimately death in a relatively short period of time if left untreated. Cerebral malaria and anopheles mosquitoes can be found in most African countries.
