Are You Concerned About the Ebola Virus?
CLINIX is too! Our medical staff is committed to staying abreast of the latest information from the CDC. Because of our concern, we would like to provide you with a summary of what you need to know:
Symptoms: The Ebola virus causes an illness characterized by fever and chills, severe headache, joint and muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, eye redness, chest pain and cough, and hemorrhage. Infected people typically don't become contagious until they develop symptoms. The incubation period can be as long as 21 days, but most people develop symptoms in 5-10 days. Family members are often infected as they care for sick relatives. (hem·or·rhage: a condition in which a person bleeds too much and cannot stop the flow of blood)
