Ebola viral disease is a serious VHF. This particular viral fever has a high mortality rate. While extremely rare in the United States, this disease is an example of the life-threatening and highly contagious nature of many hemorrhagic fevers.

This virus appears to have originated in sub-Saharan Africa. The vaccine rVSV-ZEBOV has been approved to protect against the Zaire ebolavirus strain. Like other VHFs, Ebola originated in animals and subsequently spread to humans and primates. Some VHFs, like Ebola is passed between humans, while others aren’t contagious.
