EBOLA FACTS

Ebola is a very scary disease. It kills most of the time and has not cure yet. The good news is that you don't have to get it, Here is what you need to know...

What's Ebola?

It's Bloody

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 from Ebola.

It's Contagious

Ebola is highly contagious; being transmitted via contact with body fluids such as blood, saliva, semen or body discharges. Ebola is NOT AIRBORNE!

Really Deadly

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

Untreatable

This is the sad part - 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?

The symptoms generally take 2 - 21 days to become apparent.
The symptoms are deceptively general - tending to look a lot like malaria or a flu.
One more thing, people aren't contagious until they display symptoms.

Fever

Headache

Diarrhea

Vomiting

Weakness

Joint & Muscle Ache

Stomach Pain

Lack of Appetite

Protect Yourself

Wash Your Hands with Soap

Do this a lot. You can also use a good hand sanitizer. Avoid unnecessary contact!

No Bush Meat & Suya

Bush meat may be carrying the virus. Also avoid suya. Better to restrict yourself to food you prepared yourself.

Disinfect Your Surroundings

The virus cannot survive disinfectants, heat, direct sunlight, detergents and soaps. Clean up!

Fumigate If you Have Pests

Fumigate your environment & dispose of the carcasses properly! Better a clean environment for you!

Don't Touch Carcasses

Dead bodies can still transmit Ebola. Don't touch them without protective gear or avoid them altogether.

Protect Yourself

Use protective gear if you must care or go near someone you suspect has Ebola.

Report

Report any suspicious symptoms in yourself or anyone else IMMEDIATELY you notice them. Don't delay!!
