Ebola hemorrhagic disease poses one of the most virulent pathogen to man. The disease is caused by one of the two genera of the family of filoviridae called Ebola virus. It is highly contagious and is easily spread through body fluids such as mucus, saliva, sweat and blood. The ranges of symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, general body pain, internal and external bleeding and fever. Bleeding occurs after 10-15 days of attack through the openings as mouth, nose, eyes and urogenital. The virus may attack the blood, liver cell and other vital organs leading to massive internal bleeding, shock, respiratory arrest and finally death. Early signs and symptoms such as inflammation, pain, fatigue, dizziness and rashes usually offer essential clues that guide physicians and other health care professionals to make a diagnosis early enough which may eventually make way for prevention and control with set goals for total eradication of the disease. The paper is both qualitative and quantitative. The paper made recommendations for effective management of the disease and called for the inclusion of communication experts as integral part of prevention and control strategy.
