ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Ebola is a very dangerous virus that can make some people very sick. It is spread through contact with an infected person's blood, or other bodily fluids, like vomit, poop, and sweat. When someone is infected with the virus, they can get a fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, sore throat, and a rash. In some cases, it can even lead to death. It is important to stay away from anyone who might have ebola and wash your hands often to help stop the spread.
