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?:
Fever
Headache
Diarrhoea
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.
Rodents can be carriers of Ebola.
Fumigate your environment & dispose off the carcasses properly!
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!!

Educate Everyone:
Tell your neighbours,
colleagues and domestic
staff. You're safer when
everyone is educated about
Ebola.
