Ebola virus disease
Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a severe disease that causes hemorrhagic fever in humans and animals . Diseases that cause hemorrhagic fevers, such as Ebola, are often fatal as they affect the body's vascular system (how blood moves through the body). This can lead to significant internal bleeding and organ failure.
