Ebola Virus has caused more than 1000 deaths and more than that are infected. Ebola is out of control at present and many countries have closed their doors for immigrants in Africa.

Ebola is not reported out of Africa till date, however chances of it spreading are high. USA is an advanced country and risk of it getting there is very low. However Europe is very near to Africa and chances of reaching there through intermediate poor countries is high.

The more risk is to poor countries due to their ineffective system of checking live stock entry in country.

As of now Virus has not crossed African border and USA is not affected by the virus.

However a person was detained at USA airport with symptoms like Ebola but he was checked negative.

It's a virus that attacks a person blood system:

Ebola is what scientists call a haemorraghic fever - it operates by making its victims bleed from almost anywhere on their body.
Usually victims bleed to death.

Ebola is highly contagious; Being transmitted via contact with body fluids such as blood, sweat, saliva, semen or other body discharges.

Ebola is however NOT AN AIRBORNE VIRUS!

EXTREMELY deadly:
About 90% of people that catch Ebola will die from it.
It's one of the deadliest diseases in the world, killing in just a few weeks.

Untreatable(no cure):
Ebola has no known treatment or cure.
Victims are usually treated for symptoms with the faint hope that they recover.

How Do I Know Someone has Ebola?

•Fever

•Joint & Muscle pains
•Stomach Pain
•Lack of Appetite

•Wash Your Hands with Soap Do this a lot. You can also use a good hand sanitizer. Avoid unnecessary physical contact with people.
