Now that our normal flu season is beginning there will be great concern about Ebola, because the first three days of Ebola symptoms are the same as those of the common cold or flu. First the victim feels tired and temperature challenged, the next day there’s an irritation somewhere like the nose or throat, then a temperature rise. Then, sourced from The Huffington Post, about the fourth day after the beginning of the mild onset an Ebola victim will begin vomiting and diarrhea, and as the bodily tissues lose fluids the blood pressure will drop. About 7-10 days after onset spontaneous bleeding from the nose or eyes may occur, with non-visible bleeding in the tissues and organs. Without any supportive care the death rate is 90-100 percent. With excellent care from the first onset of symptoms the death rate may be 20-0 percent. The supportive care begins with maintaining bodily fluids, and outside of a hospital that means drinking water with both 1 spoon salt and 8 spoons sugar added to 1 liter of water. Drink enough of this sugared salt water to maintain body weight.

How rapidly a victim develops Ebola is probably dose-related, and a person with a very slight exposure takes 21 days to get sick, and has the best chance of recovery. A person who gets a large dose from directly contacting the fluids of a very sick Ebola victim, probably has a sudden onset in a few days and has a poor prognosis. Being infected with a large dose doesn’t give the body enough time to develop antibodies for eliminating the Ebola virus.
