Reliable Shares the Need-to-Know Info on Ebola

With all of the confusion, fear, and misinformation spreading about Ebola in recent weeks, it is important to keep yourself informed of the truth.

Read on to find out more, courtesy of NextLogical Benefit Strategies, LLC.

ebola information What are the Symptoms of Ebola?

 Identifying Ebola in its earliest stages ensures that patients can get immediate treatment for the disease. Many people who have recently returned from West Africa are being monitored for the symptoms of Ebola in order to determine whether they may have possibly contracted it. These symptoms include a fever of greater than 101.5 degrees Fahrenheit, muscle pain, diarrhea and vomiting, severe headache, and unexplained bleeding or bruising. As many in the news have noted, until an individual develops these symptoms, they are not infectious, even if they have the virus in their system.

 How is Ebola Treated?

 Unlike treatments for the flu or other types of viruses, there is no vaccine as of yet that specifically targets Ebola. Nevertheless, drug trials to develop such a vaccine are ongoing. Ebola does not have to prove deadly, particularly with early attention and care paid to the patient. Health care workers set about treating the symptoms and rehydrating the patient in order to improve their chances of recovery.

 How is Ebola Contracted?

 Contracting Ebola is not easy if basic protocols are followed. Only by coming into contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, whether by direct contact (touching broken skin or mucous membranes) or by proxy (through a needle or syringe) can you contract Ebola. Contrary to rumor, Ebola is not spread through a simple touch; skin-to-skin contact would not lead to Ebola being transferred unless that skin were broken or had traces of an infected bodily fluid on it.

 How is Ebola Prevented?

 Though contracting Ebola is extremely rare, it is nevertheless important to avoid it if you are in a high-risk situation. The basic procedures to follow in order to prevent Ebola include practicing good, thorough hygiene, not handling any potentially infected items, avoiding any burial rites which would necessitate coming into contact with the body of someone who has died from Ebola, and carefully monitoring your health after returning from West Africa or another infection site.
