Ebola Virus: The Real Threat and How to Survive It
Ebola is a horrible disease, and so far there is only talk of a vaccine. People get a fever, headache and then start bleeding out the nose, gums and rectum. Anyone who touches their bodily fluids, such as blood, saliva, urine or semen is likely to catch and spread the disease. Ebola has a 90% kill rate—only 10% of victims survive it.
