Abstract: Our team has chosen to do our project on the Ebola virus. It is a fatal virus that affects humans and primates. Ebola was discovered in 1976 near the Zaire river. Ebola is a microorganism that is shaped like a hook. The lees intense symptoms of Ebola are like high fever or diarrhea. The longer you have the virus, the symptoms get worse. An example is vomiting blood, blindness, or bloody diarrhea. Ebola can be easily transmitted through personal contact from another person who is infected. It is important for us because we want people who are unaware of Ebola virus to be a bit more cautious about it.
Our purpose of the project is to warn people about Ebola. We plan to research more about Ebola through the internet, books, or magazines. We will plan to work on gaining knowledge through the computer to illustrate the Ebola and how it spreads.
