Marburg disease is a rare but highly severe illness caused by the Marburg virus, a member of the viral hemorrhagic fever family. It is vital to gain a comprehensive understanding of this disease to effectively prevent its transmission and mitigate its devastating impact.
Marburg disease manifests as a sudden onset of symptoms including high fever, severe headache, muscle aches, fatigue, and gastrointestinal disturbances. As the disease progresses, it can lead to hemorrhagic manifestations and severe organ dysfunction. The Marburg virus primarily spreads through contact with infected animals or direct contact with infected individuals’ blood, tissues, or bodily fluids.
