How Ebola Spreads From Person to Person

How Is Ebola Spread From Person to Person?
The virus is spread by contact with an infected patient’s blood or bodily fluids, including saliva, urine, sweat, feces, vomit or semen. It can be spread through contact with clothing/linens contaminated with bodily fluids, contact with some animals, and used needles or syringes.
  • The Ebola virus spreads only when someone is exhibiting symptoms.
  • Individuals that do not have a fever are not contagious and cannot transmit the virus to another person.
  • Transmission occurs through direct contact with an infected person’s bodily fluids.
