The Ebola virus is one that has become rampant in Africa and continues to spread around the world. At my hospital, there have been trainings about the symptoms of Ebola and what we should do if we have a patient infected with it. Normally you'd think that the virus dies when if the person infected dies. This virus doesn't quite play to that tune.

All of the talk about the Ebola virus is pretty scary! Read on to find out what is happening with the nurse that was recently infected. The symptoms of Ebola are quite horrible. The World Health Organization states that they include "the sudden onset of fever fatigue, muscle pain, headache and sore throat...followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rash, symptoms of impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases, both internal and external bleeding (e.g. oozing from the gums, blood in the stools)." Yikes! Let's get this under control before it gets worse!
