Caption: Computer artwork showing an ebola virus particle (red) infecting a cell. Glycoproteins in the viral envelope bind with receptors on the cell. The virus is taken into the cell via an endocytic process known as macropinocytosis. This involves ruffles on the cell surface enveloping the virus. This virus is the cause of ebola virus disease in humans and nonhuman primates. It is a severe and often fatal disease with symptoms including fever, fatigue, muscle aches, vomiting, diarrhoea and haemorrhaging (internal bleeding). There is no cure for the disease, but three quarters of patients can recover if provided with sufficient medical support.
