Protect yourself against Ebola. EBOLA is Deadly.regular sun exposure will help optimize your vitamin D, which is crucial for overall robust immune function. Doctors can treat some of the symptoms of Ebola, but they cannot cure the virus itself.

Q: What is Ebola?

A: Ebola virus is the cause of a viral hemorrhagic fever disease. Symptoms include: fever, headache, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, lack of appetite, and abnormal bleeding. Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to Ebola virus though 8-10 days is most common.

Q: How is Ebola transmitted?

  • A: Ebola is transmitted through direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids (like urine, feces, saliva, vomit, sweat, and semen) of an infected symptomatic person or though exposure to objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected secretions.

Q: Can Ebola be transmitted through the air?

  • A: No. Ebola is not a respiratory disease like the flu, so it is not transmitted through the air.

Q: Can I get Ebola from contaminated food or water?

  • A: No. Ebola is not transmitted through food in the United States. It is not transmitted through water.

Q: Can I get Ebola from a person who is infected but doesn’t have any symptoms?

  • A: No. Individuals who are not symptomatic are not contagious. In order for the virus to be transmitted, an individual would have to have direct contact with an individual who is experiencing symptoms or has died of the disease.

CDC website says A person infected with Ebola can’t spread the disease until 
symptoms appear. The time from exposure to when signs or symptoms of the disease appear (the incubation period) is 2 to 21 days, but the average time is 8 to 10 days.

Signs of Ebola include:

  •  fever (higher than 101.5°F) and 

Symptoms like: 

  • severe headache, muscle pain,
  • vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain,
  • or unexplained bleeding or bruising.

Protect yourself against Ebola. There is no FDA-approved vaccine available for 
Ebola. Experimental vaccines and treatments for Ebola are under development, but they have not yet been fully tested for safety or effectiveness.

To protect yourself from Ebola
  • DO wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • Do NOT touch the blood or body fluids (like urine, feces, saliva, vomit, sweat, and semen) of people who are sick.

  • Do NOT handle items that may have come in contact with a sick person’s blood or body fluids, like clothes, bedding, needles, or medical equipment.

  • Do NOT touch the body of someone who has died of Ebola.
