Abstract

Ebola is a serious, often fatal disease with a fatality rate of up to 90%. The short-term objective of this letter to the listeners is to make known the signs of the Ebola virus to the population and to promote the early diagnosis in our environment. We applied an observation of the cases of the Ebola epidemic in our environment. It is not always possible to quickly identify patients with Ebola virus disease. For this reason, it is important that health workers apply the usual precautions to all patients, regardless of diagnosis, in any professional practice and at any time. With the support of the Congolese government and several other organizations, the Congolese government is expected to launch a program of mass awareness and vaccination against the Ebola virus.
