August 11th: Facts and advice about Ebola risks in the community

IFH has prepared a fact sheet which focusses on Ebola risk in the community and home, and gives advice on managing situations where there is risk.  

Although infection with Ebola causes life threatening disease, the level of risk is very low, even for travellers to affected countries, although it is important that they adopt elementary precautions such as frequent handwashing and avoid direct contact with infected people. 

The fact sheet can be found at  http://www.ifh-homehygiene.org/factsheet/ebola-virus-disease-what-you-should-know-and-how-manage-risks
