The article states that the one thing that the airports are using to check for Bola for the returning passengers is a fever. The fever is the main thing they check for, but some biologist think that in some cases the fever don’t come on until one of the later phases. The world Health Organization stated that,” The finding that 87. 1% of those infected exhibited fever ? but 12. 9% did not ? illustrates the challenges confronting health authorities as they struggle to notation the epidemic. Some scientist thinks that by checking for a fever is a sure way to catch the virus. It is shown that it is not 100% sure that every person tested would show symptoms of a fever. This purpose of this article was to inform people that the methods that the airports and government are using, will not completely catch every person who has the Bola virus that comes back into the United States. Dry. Paul D. Systole, former chairman of the University of Marshland’s Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, said the matter “requires further investigation. David Hillman, 2014, peg. 1) The CDC also believes that only checking just for a fever isn’t enough when it comes to a virus of this magnitude. Based on what his staff observed, Kennels wrote, “it seems that only measuring the temperature as a form of triage is insufficient. ” He added: “It seems that Bola can present without fever especially in the first phase. ” Kennels said that without fever as a trustworthy marker, it is difficult for medical professionals to treat the many West Africans suffering from everyday maladies.

This article related to biology in every way possible. It is the prime example of biology and what biology is. We have talked about diseases and viruses and how they work against you. In West Africa the number of Bola patients has doubles and in some places has tripled. When trying to understand the larger picture of what’s going on in the United States you have to look at what is going on in West Africa. It’s a major problem with containment. Because people don’t know they have the virus until it’s too late. Especially when trying to go by just the fever homonyms alone.
In West Africa some patents never experienced a fever at all. The numbers for West Africans death rate is staggering. These are the numbers, В«The majority of patients are 15 to arrears of age (49. 9% male), and we estimate that the case fatality rate is 70. 8% (95% confidence interval [Call 69 to 73) among persons with known clinical outcome of infection. The COUrse of infection, including signs and symptoms, incubation period (1 1. 4 days), and serial interval (15. 3 days), is similar to that reported in previous outbreaks of FED.
