Royal Group Charity on Ebola

Quarantine Area

More than 12 months after the largest ever Ebola outbreak began, the situation is finally improving. Transmission is reduced from its peak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. Liberia’s chains of transmission seem contained, though investigations into one recent case continue.

There is no vaccine to prevent Ebola, although research is underway.

The current outbreak is spreading person to person, via bodily fluids. The virus is present in fluids like blood, vomit, semen, sweat, etc. The top way to protect yourself is to avoid direct unprotected contact with sick people and their body fluids.
