Abstract: First paragraph: Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a haemorrhagic fever caused by Ebola virus (EBOV) with high infectivity and mortality. EBOV is an enveloped, single-stranded, and negative-sense RNA virus belonging to the Filoviridae family. In contrast to the genus Marburgvirus which contains one single species, the genus Ebolavirus contains 5 species: Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV), Sudan ebolavirus (SUDV), Taï Forest ebolavirus (TAFV), Bundibugyo ebolavirus (BDBV) which are pathogenic for humans, and Reston Ebolavirus (RESTV) which infects non human primates. EBOV was first discovered in 1976 in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and simultaneously in Sudan. Since 1976, EVD has appeared sporadically in DRC, Sudan, Gabon, Uganda, and Congo, with small to large outbreaks and lethality ranging from 50 to 100% with about 2500 cumulative cases until 2013.
