Share the Facts on Ebola

Get up to speed on the basics:

  • Symptoms consistent with Ebola
    • Fever
    • Headache, muscle aches, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Epidemiology
    • People are not infectious until they develop symptoms.
    • The time interval from infection to onset of symptoms is 2 to 21 days.
    • Two suggested questions to ask a patient for whom you suspect Ebola:
      • Have you been to West or Central African countries, in particular Sierra Leone, Guinea or Liberia, within the past three weeks?
      • Have you been in contact with blood or any body fluids of someone known or suspected to have Ebola within the past three weeks?
