Marburg virus disease (MVD; formerly Marburg hemorrhagic fever) is a viral hemorrhagic fever in human and non-human primates caused by either of the two Marburgviruses: Marburg virus (MARV) and Ravn virus (RAVV).[3] Its clinical symptoms are very similar to those of Ebola virus disease (EVD).[1]

Egyptian fruit bats are believed to be the normal carrier in nature and Marburg virus RNA has been isolated from them.[4]
