Transmission of Ebola Virus
Direct contact of blood, organs, secretions, and semen of an infected person
Through infected needles that are reused (a common practice in most Third World countries)
Sexual contact with an infected person
Recovered patients do not pose a serious threat of infecting another person, but the virus may be present in a human body 7 weeks after being treated. The vomit and diarrhoea are filled with blood and mucus with the Ebola virus in it. Any person with close physical contact with an infected person should be under strict surveillance. The Ebola virus is highly contagious, although it is not an airborne virus.
