is a low-cost and nature-based wastewater-treatment system, which uses a sand filter [with multiple layers of filter substrate] and reed plants [called helophytes] to treat grey and black wastewater,' the Dutch national further explained.
Before 2014, UK guidance focused on the public health response to inadvertent importation of cases of VHF

in four areas, including the city-owned abattoir, an urban poor community in the city, and government-supported small and medium enterprise.
outbreaks throughout Eurasia show that an all-hazards preparedness scope must go beyond Ebola to include all VHFs

IMAGES OF HUMANS infected with Ebola Virus Disease, a strain of viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF

); the causative agent is an RNA virus in the family Filoviridae, and growing evidence demonstrates that fruit bats are the natural reservoir of Marburg virus (MARV) (1,2).
This conclusion is substantiated by reference to the FCC (50, 50) curves for VHF

Viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs
) are caused by a group of genetically distinct zoonotic viruses, which include [greater than or equal to] 4 virus families (Filoviridae, Arenaviridae, Bunyaviridae, and Flaviviridae).
Blumberg said that the NICD had the capacity for rapid, reliable and specialised differential diagnoses of VHFs
, including Ebola, which was integral to the response to any suspected case(s) that might present to SA healthcare facilities.
