PositiveTips

Here are key points you should know about Ebola:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Ebola only spreads when people are showing symptoms. If you were exposed and 21 days have passed, you will not get sick with Ebola.
