EBOLA VIRUS-Relief Yourself With This Information & Live longer

EBOLA VIRUS! Relief Yourself With This Information & Live Longer

A lot has been said about this ravaging disease that kills faster than AIDS which is already making people to avoid contacts with friends, colleagues and commuters as well. And bearing in mind that in this part of the world, issues that relate to Personal Hygiene & Food Safety are always pushed to the background, but with this important information stated below from the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Oraganization, I believe we’ll live longer than the fear this killer disease is generating in Nigeria.  

  • The suspected reservoirs for Ebola are fruit bats 
  • Transmission to humans is thought to originate from infected bats or primaries that have become infected by bats 
  • Undercooked infected bats and primitive (bush) meat transmits the virus to humans
  • Human to human transmission is only achieved by physical contact with a person who is actively and gravely ill from the Ebola virus or their body fluids 
  • Transmission among humans is almost exclusively among caregiver family members or health care workers tending to the very ill 
  • The virus is easily killed bycontact with soap, bleach, sunlight,or drying. It is learnt that washing machine will kill the virus in clothing saturated with infected body fluids 
  • A person can incubate the virus without symptons for 2-21days, the average being 5-8days before becoming ill. THEY ARE NOT CONTAGIOUS until they are acutely ill 
  • Only when ill does the viral expressly load itself first in the blood and then in other bodily fluids(to include vomit, feces, urine,breast milk, semen and sweat)
  •                                                                                                          …TO BE CONT’D
