Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a highly lethal viral illness, with a mortality rate that varies between approximately 30% and 90%. The initial Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak was documented during the 1970s in Zaire, which is presently known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Prior to 2013, the majority of epidemics were concentrated in the Central Africa region, specifically in Zaire, Sudan, and Uganda. During the period from March to October 2014, more than 10,000 cases of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) were documented in West Africa, specifically in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria. Additionally, a small number of hospital or secondary infections of EVD were reported in Spain and the United States of America. Currently, EVD is regarded as one of the most dreaded diseases worldwide. This literature review provides a comprehensive overview of the epidemiology, clinical aspects, diagnosis, and therapy of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).
