The Marburg virus has caused concern! – Last Minute Türkiye and world news

SHAFAQNA Türkiye – The Marburg virus, which came to the fore again this year, continues to die. The virus, which has recently attracted attention with a rise in cases, has not emerged recently.

Marburg virus was first detected in 1967 in Frankfurt and Marburg in Germany, and in Belgrade in Serbia. The virus, which was found in 31 people, caused the death of seven people. In 2005, the Marburg virus epidemic in Angola killed more than 300 people.

Experts are again warning about this deadly virus. Finally, 16 people; They died after eight days of bleeding gums and convulsive pain.


Earlier this year, Equatorial New Guinea and the United Republic of Tanzania saw an increase in Marburg virus cases. A total of 12 people have died in New Guinea and four people in Tanzania due to the virus.

The virus, which belongs to the same family as the one that causes Ebola, exposes those it infects to a “ghostly” appearance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Other symptoms of the virus include diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, as well as high fever, severe headaches, and extreme weakness. It is also stated that many patients suffering from the virus experience frequent bleeding from the gums, nose and vagina and die after eight to nine days.


According to BBC news; African green monkeys and pigs can carry the virus, while Egyptian fruit bats often carry the virus.

It can be passed between people through bodily fluids and by lying in the same bed. Even after they have recovered from the virus, their blood or semen can remain infectious for several months.

There is no cure for the disease. While doctors try to relieve symptoms by giving hospitalized patients plenty of fluids or blood transfusions, the WHO says some blood products, drugs and immune therapies are being developed.
