Here are key points you should know about Ebola:
- Ebola is not spread through casual contact with someone who has no symptoms of the disease; or through the air, water or food in first world countries.
- You can only get the virus through direct contact with body fluids of a person who is sick with or has died from Ebola; or objects or animals contaminated with the virus.
- Ebola only spreads when people are showing symptoms. If you were exposed and 21 days have passed, you will not get sick with Ebola.
