A method and an apparatus for producing openings in sheet metal material being provided in band form as well as a perforated sheet material produced by said method. The method comprises providing notches in the sheet material and stretching partial areas of the notched sheet material by a thickness-reducing processing step, whereby the notches which lie between the stretched partial areas of the notched sheet material are enlarged to form openings. The apparatus for producing openings in sheet… Expand

TLDR
Some time back, a curious fever with a nodular rash began to appear in the tea-growing hills where I work, and a pregnant, febrile young woman walked in, and I diagnosed haemorrhagic fever (HF), presumably viral. Expand
A study of viral and rickettsial exposure and causes of fever in Juba, southern Sudan.
TLDR
The need for further public health measures in the southern Sudan to control the spread of Ebola and Marburg exposure is indicated, with a high prevalence of positive antibodies to Rickettsia typhi in the population indicated that murine typhus was common locally. Expand
A Review on Ebola Virus Disease
TLDR
The Ebola virus seems to have enthralled the global interest due to its lethal prospective, and the research is ongoing on development of making vaccine to curb this virus yet licensed success or specific treatment is not achieved. Expand
A comparative study of strains of ebola virus isolated from southern sudan and northern zaire in 1976
During the 1976 Ebola virus outbreak in Sudan, the investigating team gained the impression that fewer haemorrhagic manifestations and few fatalities occurred during the later stages of the epidemicExpand
Ebola virus transmission.
TLDR
The recent outbreak of Ebola virus infection in the rural Zairean town of Kikwit has generated considerable discussion in both the medical and lay press, and adds topicality to the report in this issue by Johnson and colleagues from the Army Medical Research Institute in Frederick, USA, of aerosol spread of Ebolairus infection in an experimental animal model. Expand
Reemergence of Ebola virus in Africa.
TLDR
The new Ebola virus recently isolated from a patient in the Côte d’Ivoire has been shown to be genetically distinct from previous Ebola isolates (A. Sanchez, unpublished data) and is the first evidence of Ebola virus in West Africa. Expand
Lassa fever: response to an imported case.
TLDR
In response to the importation of this communicable and highly fatal disease, procedures for the isolation of the patient, the identification, surveillance and management of contacts and the handling of laboratory specimens were developed and implemented and could be adapted to future introductions of highly contagious diseases.
