Ebola virus particles in infected tissue. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of ebola virus particles (bright red) infecting an ovary in a monkey. As well as the virus particles, intracytoplasmic ebola virus inclusion bodies forming crystalline arrays (darker red) can be seen within ovarian stromal cells. 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.
