Ebola is very fatal and nearly kills 50% the of victims afflicted.
But it can also be self-limiting since its incubation period is very short~2-5/7
You only have to have nursed a patient of Ebola or participated in a burial to be at high risk.
Let us avoid these situations and we shall not have communities evacuating villages like is happening in some parts of Uganda today. Let us educate the public and provide adequate resources to health workers to treat the sick and bury the dead.
