Ebola hemorrhagic fever, also known as Ebola virus disease is a disease of humans and other mammals caused by Ebolavirus. Fruit bats are believed to be the normal carrier in nature, able to spread the virus
without being affected. Humans become infected by contact with the bats or a living or dead animal that has been infected by bats. Once human infection occurs, the disease may spread between people as
well. Male survivors may be able to transmit the disease via semen for nearly two months.
