What is Ebola?
Ebola 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 the Ebola virus, though 8-10 days is most common.
How does Ebola spread?
You can only get Ebola from contact with bodily fluids from a person who is sick or has died from Ebola, or from exposure to contaminated objects, such as needles.
