Ebola is a virus that has taken the world by fear over the past 8 weeks. As cases of the virus spread to other parts of the world after an outbreak in Africa, many people are growing concerned about their own safety. With confirmed cases in Dallas, TX and Spain occurring based on travel and with health care workers testing positive after treating patients and not realizing they have been infected, it is understandable that concerns are mounting. Now that two nurses have contracted Ebola in the U.S. Americans are wanting to be better informed, better equipped and better prepared than ever. This booklet discusses the issue while providing current information available from the third week of October 2014.
