Ebola prevention and preparedness

Ebola virus disease is a severe, often fatal illness, with a case fatality rate of up to 90%. The infection is transmitted by direct contact with the blood, body fluids and tissues of infected animals or people. Severely ill patients require intensive supportive care. During an outbreak, those at higher risk of infection are health workers, family members and others in close contact with sick people and deceased patients, but the infection can be controlled through the use of recommended protective measures in clinics and hospitals, at community gatherings, or at home.


The Kenyan Ministry of Health, Disease Surveillance and Response Unit has provided tools below. Kindly familiarize yourself with the attached preparedness information.
