Recently, the World Health Organization has reported that two people have died in Ghana, Africa due to the virus called ‘Markburg’, and its impact will be as severe as the Ebola virus.
In a report published by the World Health Organization, “The tests conducted in Ghana confirmed that these two have the Markburg virus. However, this can be confirmed only after the results are confirmed in the laboratory in Senegal.
The report also said, “They had symptoms like diarrhoea, fever, nausea, and vomiting”.
In this test, if the virus infection is confirmed, the second case of Markburg virus infection in West Africa is common. It is noteworthy that before this, Markburg virus was confirmed in one person in Guinea last year and no one else has been diagnosed with the infection since then.
Also, the World Health Organization has said that it is taking necessary action before the test results are out.
The World Health Organization reports that the virus has spread 12 times in eastern and southern Africa since 1967, and the fatality rate has varied from 24 percent to 88 percent depending on the severity of the virus.
