Marburg virus (MARV) is a zoonotic virus (a virus that originates in animals) related to the Ebola virus (EBOV) that causes Marburg virus disease (MVD), which is very similar to Ebola virus disease (EVD) and is associated with high mortality in humans and nonhuman primates. This virus is native to Africa, but cases are occasionally exported out of Africa. On March 21, 2023, the government of Tanzania announced the country’s first ever outbreak of MVD and only a month prior, the government of Equatorial Guinea announced an outbreak in their country. The following MQL was developed by the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T) to present the current state of available information to government decision makers in response to the 2023 Marburg virus (MARV) outbreak.
