The Marburg virus, a relative of Ebola, causes a haemorrhagic fever that kills around 80% of people who are infected.

Though the virus is rare, there is currently no effective treatment. Even in those who survive and undergo an apparently complete recovery, the virus may re-emerge in later life or be passed on to children.
