I've been trained to respond to biological incidents, have actually responded to threats from these types of agents, have specifically studied diseases like Ebola, and have read books about previous outbreaks like Ebola. There's nothing about the transmission of the disease that is different than what the government is stating. You need direct contact with the following: 1. Body fluids of a person who is sick with or has died from Ebola. (blood, vomit, urine, feces, sweat, semen, spit, other fluids) 2 Objects contaminated with the virus (needles, medical equipment) 3 Infected animals (by contact with blood or fluids or infected meat) For more information see the following link for a fact sheet from the CDC
Over 90% of Americans live in places at a moderate-to-high risk of a variety of hazards (earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes, flooding, high-wind damage or terrorism). But, many individuals and organizations don't take some of the basic steps that they could to be better prepared. In a recent survey, 82 percent of Americans agreed “If someone could make it easy for me to be prepared, I’d do it.” We're about to make it easy.
