Out of those 14 samples, 1 had Ebola virus antigen, 2 had Ebolaspecific IgM antibodies, and 12 had Ebola virus RNA, which was detected by using reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (which is a technique used in molecular biology to detect genetic data such as RNA expression). Control measures were then initiated to limit disease spread. On May 4, 1995, all hospitals, laboratories, and health centers were closed throughout Kikwit; all patients who were in contact with suspected Ebola virus disease patients were isolated and quarantined in a separate building.

21 In this study, they showed that there were antigenic differences in both virus strains (Sudan and Zaire). 21 These studies suggest that, though some patients do recover from the Ebola virus disease they may still be at risk of reinfection from a different strain that is more virulent and causes more debilitating disease. Such viruses do exist which have similar properties of changing antigenicity to cause reinfection in people who might have already had the infection or have even been immunized such as the influenza virus and also certain types of herpes simplex virus types.
