Weather channel offers short film on Ebola virus
The Weather Channel offers an interesting short film on Ebola virus, “If You Get It, You’re Probably Going to Die”
The virus lives in the jungle, silently, and every few years breaks out when people hunt animals, especially primates (who may get it from bats), and bring them into villages.
The disease is spread by direct contact with blood and body fluids and cause the body to lose the ability to clot blood, leading to “bleed outs” and liquefication of tissues.
