2. How does Ebola spread?

  • Ebola spreads from person-to-person by direct contact with a patient's body fluids, like saliva, blood, vomit, urine, feces, and sweat.
  • The virus gets into the body through broken skin or mucous membranes (spongy skin like the kind you find in your nose or mouth).
  • Ebola can also be spread by infected objects, like needles, that have been tainted with body fluids.
  • Ebola can also spread after death, when preparing the patient's body for burial. Ebola can't spread through the air, in food, or water.
