MOM! I don't feel good at all. I feel like vomiting and everything hurts.
I will take you to the doctor after I am done eating.
Hello! I am doctor Dave Daniels. What seems to be the problem kiddo?
My stomach, throat , nose, and everything hurts. I feel like vomiting. I've never felt like this before!
Your heart is beating really fast. You're forehead is burning. And your fever is... 104.5 degrees!
That's impossible. That only happens in Africa. He can not stay here.
Your son, Issac has been diagnosed with this new disease Ebola. It is very bad. And fatal. I don't want to freak you out.
The disease spreads very easily. But direct contact of blood, with other body fluids of someone who has it. With treatment you can get better. Prevented by washing your hands multiple times a day from now on.
Symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, dehydration, chills, nausea, headaches, sore throat, etc.
So, the cause of the disease is unknown. I think you got it from infected waters or fatal animal jems. It is very uncommon here.
Ebola has no cure. But the symptoms can be treated. When treated help workers MUST wear protective gearing so they don't get infected.
We will get through this. You just need to take steps to let you and others stay safe.
