Learn all there is to know about Ebola from Scishow


Hank Green, from SciShow, explains what Ebola is, and where is it coming from. It is not contagious as, let’s say, the flu, but it is nonetheless a deadly disease that can kill 90% of the infected victims. Ebola is transmitted to other hosts via direct contact (of your mouth, eyes, or open wound) with bodily fluids from the patients: vomit, urine, fecal matter, semen, blood. It transmits much like Hepatitis B.

So, in case you get near a guy with Ebola make sure to not touch anything they touched and stand at a certain distance. You’ll be safe. I wrote about Ebola before in this blog post. Even if it so deadly, if the patients are quarantined, the there is no such a big deal.
