In Travel Vaccine News by Travel Vaccine

Lingering symptoms have been reported by Ebola virus disease (EVD) survivors in Africa over the past few years. 
For example, the Liberian Ebola Survivors Cohort study published on September 6, 2022, found headache, fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain, hearing loss, visual loss, and numbness of hands or feet were longitudinally assessed among EVD participants.
At baseline, about 75% reported at least one symptom, and 85% significantly interfered with life.
