Abstract: Ebola virus disease or Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a disease of humans and other primates caused by one of the five species of the Genus Ebola virus i.e. Bundibugyo, Zaire, Reston, Sudan and Taï Forest. The Pteropodidae family of fruit bats are considered to be the natural reservoir of the Ebola virus. In lay man’s terms, the virus interferes with the endothelial cells lining the interior surface of blood vessels and coagulation. As the blood vessel walls become damaged and the platelets are unable to coagulate, patients succumb to hypovolemic shock.
