According to WHO Ebola virus is also considered a Pandemic for South African region, this virus is life-threatening even mortal rate 50% if a person suffering from Ebola 50% chances to cure it expand very fast in South African region, EVD (Ebola Virus Disease) first time is shown in the 1970s in Zaire from 35 - 87% it expands to till 2018. The Republic of Congo is reported firstly. Then after 2018 till most region it expands especially in Central Africa region including Sudan, Uganda even more than 63k cases till now registered Ebola is a second most dangerous disease after covid19 because Pandemic corona virus target all over world Ebola is serious after covid19 for Ebola virus favipiravir drug is very familiar and 4th phase clinical trial is passed this drug is designed by Japan. In this review, we are elaborating on epidemiology, treatment, management of Ebola virus disease EVD.
