Ebola Virus Disease
Ebola is a severe, often fatal hemorrhagic disease caused by a virus. It affects the body’s vascular system and can lead to significant internal bleeding and organ failure. The Ebola virus spreads through direct contact with infected bodily fluids, not through casual contact. There have been no cases of Ebola in Ontario; however, outbreaks of Ebola have occurred in Africa.
