Ebola is a deadly virus that is found in Africa.

The cause of Ebola is unknown, but scientists believe it is caused by a virus.

Ebola has symptoms including fever, headache, diarrhea and vomiting.

Ebola can be prevented by avoiding contact with the blood or body fluids of an infected person. Quarantine is sometimes used. Use of protective clothing, masks, and gloves (PPE or personal protective equipment) are required to reduce risks of infection to caregivers.

Ebola can be treated with supportive care and by giving fluids and electrolytes. Seeking treatment early can reduce the severity.

There is currently no approved vaccine for the population although there is a promising one being tested and used with staff that work in laboratories and have an exposure to Ebola.
