Ebola-Chan




Ebola-Chan is a female anime character designed as an anthropomorphic representation of the Ebola virus. The character was created on 4chan in response to growing concerns regarding the West African Ebola outbreak in the summer of 2014.

The original image of a gijinka character for the Ebola virus, “Ebola-tan” (Japanese: エボラたん), was created by a pixiv user sly on August 4th, 2014.[1] The earliest archived appearance of her on 4chan was submitted in a thread posted to the /a/ (anime) board on the same day[2], featuring an illustration of a young female anime character wearing a nurse outfit, holding a bloody skull and wearing a pony tail hair style ending in strains of the Ebola virus (shown below).




The virus spreads by direct contact with body fluids, such as blood, of an infected human or other animals.[1] This may also occur through contact with an item recently contaminated with bodily fluids.[1] Spread of the disease through the air between primates, including humans, has not been documented in either laboratory or natural conditions.[3] Semen or breast milk of a person after recovery from EVD may still carry the virus for several weeks to months.[1][4] Fruit bats are believed to be the normal carrier in nature, able to spread the virus without being affected by it. Other diseases such as malaria, cholera, typhoid fever, meningitis and other viral hemorrhagic fevers may resemble EVD. Blood samples are tested for viral RNA, viral antibodies or for the virus itself to confirm the diagnosis.[1]

No specific treatment or vaccine for the virus is available, although a number of potential treatments are being studied. Supportive efforts, however, improve outcomes. This includes either oral rehydration therapy (drinking slightly sweetened and salty water) or giving intravenous fluids as well as treating symptoms. The disease was first identified in 1976 in two simultaneous outbreaks, one in Nzara, and the other in Yambuku, a village near the Ebola River from which the disease takes its name.[6] EVD outbreaks occur intermittently in tropical regions of sub-Saharan Africa.[1] Between 1976 and 2013, the World Health Organization reports a total of 24 outbreaks involving 1,716 cases.[1][7] The largest outbreak is the ongoing epidemic in West Africa, still affecting Guinea and Sierra Leone.[8][9][10] As of 17 May 2015, this outbreak has 26,969 reported cases resulting in 11,135 deaths.[11]

Pinkie was walking around, trying to find for something, "GUMMMYYYY! WHERE ARE YOU!" The pony yelled.

She also seemed pretty much upset for losing her baby pet alligator, named Gummy.
There she sat down, sobbing softly. Her hair was all straight, since she was in a bad mood, The lil pony was really worried. "Gummy. .Where are you?" She kept on crying.
