The Ebola Epidemic has been found in the Bible Codes by expert Rabbi Glazerson. The codes show the epidemic may be related to sexual immorality among various populations. Ebola is a virus responsible for a severe and often fatal hemorrhagic fever. Many outbreaks in primates, humans, have been recorded. Initial symptoms are fever, severe headaches and muscle aches, and loss of appetite; blood clots and profuse uncontrollable hemorrhaging appear within days, followed by nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Death occurs within 8 to 16 days and fatality rates range from 50% to 90%. There is no known treatment. It takes its name from the Ebola River in northern Congo (Zaire), where it first emerged in 1976. The virus appears as long filaments, sometimes branched or intertwined. The virus particle contains one molecule of RNA. How it attacks cells is unknown. It can be transmitted through contact with bodily fluids; unsanitary conditions and lack of adequate medical supplies have been factors in its spread,  according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica.  A few eschatology experts believe the Ebola Epidemic will proliferate into Western nations and kill many in America and Europe.

The Ebola Virus is common name for several strains of virus and three of which are known to cause hemorrhagic fever in humans, which is characterized by massive bleeding and destruction of internal tissues. The Ebola virus belongs to the family Filoviridae. The viruses are long rods, 800 to 1000 nanometers (nm) long (1 nm equals one-billionth of a meter, or 4 x 10-8 in), but particles as long as 14,000 nm have been seen. Each virus consists of a coiled strand of ribonucleic acid (RNA) contained in an envelope derived from the host cell membrane that is covered with spikes. The virus is named for the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC, formerly Zaire), Africa, where the virus was first identified, according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica.

Three strains of Ebola virus that are often fatal to humans have been identified. Named for the areas in which the first recognized outbreaks took place, these strains are referred to as Ebola/Zaire, Ebola/Sudan, and Ebola/Tai Forest. A fourth Ebola strain, called Ebola/Reston, has not been found to cause disease in humans. As outbreaks of Ebola hemorrha

gic fever continue to occur, other strains may be identified. The cases of Ebola hemorrhagic fever have occurred in isolated instances and in outbreaks in sub-Saharan Africa. A significant problem in diagnosing the disease is that the viruses often strike in remote areas of developing countries, where access to laboratories for specimen analysis is limited. Of all the hemorrhagic fevers, Ebola/Zaire hemorrhagic fever is the most dramatic and deadly,  according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
