Post-ebola syndrome is a chronic syndrome that can occur after an acute ebola virus infection in those who survive.
Julian Hiscox chair in infection and global health at the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom said "We’ve seen a number of people post-Ebola who have something that is very similar to chronic fatigue syndrome."
Twenty people in the study experienced meningitis (inflammation of the tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord)
