  1. Researchers have not yet found a cure for the Ebola virus. researchers have been working hard to find a cure for this disease. Although there are some treatments for this disease. One of the treatments for this disease is an IV, and also balancing electrolytes. Another treatment they do is maintain the oxygen levels in the blood, and also maintaining our blood pressure. The last thing they do is treat other infections if they occur.

  2. To answer your question about having a cure. Currently there are no vaccines or medicine that is available to treat Ebola but there are however different things that doctors will do to help out patients with this disease such as providing them with an IV so the electrolytes in their body are balanced and maintaining oxygen and blood pressure levels if they become too high or too low.

  3. This is a really good idea for a blog considering it was such a hot topic a year or so ago. I wish there would’ve been a little more content in your paragraphs because I was left wanting more. I think what you had was very good however. To answer your question relating the Zika virus to Ebola I think they are definitely similar and different. When you think about it they have both been big virus outbreaks on the news. A difference is how they are formed. The Zika virus is something that gives babies birth defects and Ebola effects adults and kids. I think it is right to compare them mainly because of there popularity in the news and the fact that they are both viruses. In general I liked this blog and would read it again.
