Ebola virus is a rare but severe disease that is often fatal in humans. Ebola is mainly found in sub-Saharan African countries. People become infected through direct contact with the blood or body fluids of infected persons, contaminated objects, infected fruit bats or primates, or through semen of an infected man. When living or traveling to a region where Ebola is present, there are a number of ways to protect yourself.
