Ebola begins with a headache, back and neck ache. It proceeds to bloody vomit, and diarrhea, and bleeding gums and nose. Rashes, hiccups (odd symptom) Bruising (due to internal bleeding) forms on the skin and also redness of the eyes form.

In pregnant women, miscarriage and heavy vaginal bleeding are common Ebola symptoms.

Followed by Extensive internal and External bleeding, Jaundice, shock and Death

Death usually occurs during the second week of Ebola symptoms. Death in Ebola victims is usually from massive blood loss.

Between 50 and 90% of infected people die, there is at present no known cure.

And 15 fatal deaths in '04.
