Ebola Resource Center
Ebola is a rare disease spread through direct contact with the blood or other bodily fluids of an infected person or animal showing symptoms of the virus. Symptoms of Ebola usually appear within 21 days after exposure and include: fever, headache, stomach pain, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting and lack of appetite.
A person infected with Ebola is not contagious until symptoms appear. Bodily fluids that could transmit infection include urine, saliva, sweat, feces, vomit, breast milk and semen. Direct contact with infected blood or bodily fluids can occur through the eyes, nose and mouth; broken skin; and contaminated needles and syringes.
