According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC , Ebola virus can be transmitted to others through direct contact with blood or secretions and fluids of an infected person. Exposure to any objects contaminated by infected bodily secretions and fluids can also transmit the disease from person to person. Spread of Ebola can happen through close contact when caring for ill persons. Without proper cleaning and sterilization of medical equipment, Ebola can spread quickly. Ebola virus is a severe acute viral disease often mistaken as malaria, typhoid fever, shigellosis, cholera, leptospirosis, plague, rickettsiosis, relapsing fever, meningitis, hepatitis and other hemorrhagic fevers. The incubation period time from exposure to infection or apparent symptoms is days, but days is most common. Currently, there is no cure for Ebola virus—however, symptoms are treated in the infected person.
