Ebola (Ebola Virus Disease)
What is Ebola?
Ebola virus 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, although 8 to 10 days is most common.
How is Ebola transmitted?
Ebola is transmitted through direct contact with the blood or bodily
fluids of an infected symptomatic person or through exposure to
objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urges all US
residents to avoid nonessential travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and
Liberia and to practice enhanced precautions if traveling to Nigeria
because of the current outbreak of Ebola.
Can I get Ebola from a person who is infected but doesn't
have any symptoms?
No. Individuals who are not symptomatic are not contagious. In order
for the virus to be transmitted, an individual would have to have
direct contact with an individual who is experiencing symptoms.
What is being done to prevent ill passengers in West Africa
from getting on a plane?
CDC is assisting with active screening and education efforts on the
ground in West Africa to prevent sick travelers from getting on
planes. In addition, airports in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone,
are screening all outbound passengers for Ebola symptoms, including
fever, and passengers are required to respond to a health care
questionnaire. CDC is also increasing support to the region by
deploying additional workers to help build capacity on the ground.
