Ebola prevention: How to protect yourself from Ebola
If you have recently travelled to an area that has been affected by Ebola or have come into contact with someone who may at risk, there are several ways of limiting your chance of catching the virus
Ebola is spread by contact with the fluids of someone who is infected with Ebola, including saliva, sweat, blood and vomit. No vaccine or cure is available.
